YOCTO 808 V1 ANALOG ROLAND TR-808 DRUM CLONE


via this auction

"Yocto-808 Rhythm Composer, designed by German company Elicktronic as a faithful recreation of Roland’s legendary TR-808 drum machine! This unit is in beautiful cosmetic condition and VERY GOOD working condition. This unit features the Elschtroumph metal enclosure and looks fantastic. Shows just some general light wear and a bit of dust... A few notes regarding this unit: Firstly, to my ear, the Bass Drum Tone knob does not affect the bass drum tone in any way. Second, the Hand Clap sound needs to be properly tuned; to my ear it is very harsh as it is and does not sound anything like a hand clap. It does not sound like the Youtube demos of the Yocto. (The maracas sound fine.) Finally, the Cymbal sound also needs to be tuned, as it is very harsh to my ear; the tone knob does change the tone, though very slightly. Would I still use the hand clap and cymbal on a track? Yes. They are serviceable. Just not true to the original TR-808. With all that said, the unit otherwise preforms beautifully."
