The Synsonic Instruments BD-808 software-plugin is useful for creating 808-style Bass Drum Sounds.

The underlying signal processing is based on a detailed analysis of the original 808 Bass Drum circuit.

With the MIDI-Control it is also possible to use the plugin as a Bass Synthesizer.

Originally the 808 Bass Drum has the following parameters for soundshaping:

  • Accent: Strength of the drum sound.
  • Level: Output level.
  • Decay: Duration of the drum sound.
  • Tone: Amount of attack-click.

Additionally the Synsonic Instruments BD-808 offers the following useful soundshaping possibilities:

  • Tune: Tuning in halftones.
  • Fine: Tuning in cents.
  • LongDecay: Extends decay range.
  • MidiSync-Tune: Tune depends on played Midi-Note.
  • MidiSync-Accent: Accent depends on Velocity of played Midi-Note.

With the MIDI Learn function you can assign any MIDI-Controller to a parameter of the Bass Drum.

Wow! I'm totally impressed by this freebie (also the 909 emulation). Thanks.

FYI - https://www.virustotal.com/ reports both as having a "malicious" code in it.

Thank you for the hint! I will try to fix it now.

Quick update: I just ran the Mac installer through that site and it's totally clean!
