CS-808 is a collection of 16 sample-based drum instruments replicating the sound of the 16 modules of the Roland TR-808. It features 4900+ samples managed by combo sample selectors, a set of extra controls to shape the sounds and a super friendly user interface.

Combo Selection

Each drum instrument is equipped with its own combo sample selector, based on the original parameters available on the TR-808 and linked to large arrays of samples. The concept behind the combo selectors is as simple as effective.

Take for example the original TR-808 Bass Drum module, comprising of Tone, Decay and Accent parameters. If you split each parameter in 11 steps (for example from 0 to 10 as graphically shown on the original hardware), you obtain 1331 possible combinations (11*11*11).

And in fact, the CS-808 Bass Drum module is based on 1331 samples. So, when you select Accent, Tone or Decay in your CS-808 BD module, you are loading and playing the sample related to that precise parameter combination of the original TR-808.

Extra Controls

In addition to the original TR-808 parameters/selectors (Accent - Decay - Tone - Tuning - Snappy), the 16 drum instruments feature also a set of extra controls not present in the original TR-808 but very useful to shape the sounds:

  • Level.
  • Vol<>
  • Normalizer.
  • Pitch.
  • Pitch Env. Depth.
  • Pitch Env. Decay.
  • Pitch Env. Slope.
  • Filter Type (LP - HP - BP - BS).
  • Filter Cutoff.
  • Filter Resonance.
  • Duration.
