5 minutes jam with the 880 - #808day 2023

video upload by Stazma

"More infos and affiliate links in the description // Support on Patreon to get samples from this session:

Here is a jam with my Repeat Eater setup, using only my 880 and it's signal processing chain (Moog MF-101, Gamechanger Audio Light Pedal, Earthquaker Devices Avalance Run on an aux send for the dubby vibes).

It was meant as a rehearsal for myself as I have a show with this setup later this week. I'll record a session with the whole acid thing going. But to celebrate this 808day I wanted to embrace the full minimalistic drum machine experience. I'm surprised that it's actualy not that boring to listen to hahaha.

You'll be able to download the session on Patreon and use any the parts you want as samples in your tracks if you want.

Free sample pack recorded with a Tegeler Audio VTRC right here:

808 Electro Live Jam for 8.08 day by Honeysmack


"A little live Elelctro feel improv with the TR-808 and friends for 8.08 day. Celebrating the 40th anniversary of one of the most influential drum machines of our time (yes yes, not forgetting the TR-909 either - but lets leave that for another time). This jam was originally recorded for Instagram Live as a single take, totally unrehearsed.

Gear in use:
Roland TR-808
Roland SH-101
Play Differently - Model 1
Elektron Analog RYTM
Elektron Analog Four
Eventide Space
TC Electronic Flashback
(Roland TB-303 and TR-09 pictured but not in use)

No software or computer were harmed during this recording."

Happy 808 Day 2020 by SynthMania


"Technical explanations for the technically curious:
- I pre-recorded the synth bass, analog synth, acid line, Funky Drummer loop, etc. in the DAW (Cubase Pro 10);
- Sync'ed the TR-808 to Cubase via a Garfield Dr. Click 2 (MIDI to Roland sync)
- Improvised the other sampled vocals ad lib on the MIDI controller (M-Audio Axiom 61).
- All effects done in Cubase.
- Camera - Canon 6D mkII with 24-70 L
- Video Editor - Vegas Pro 17"

808 DAY 2020 - Launchpad Pro Finger Drumming Performance

Nular Music

"Happy 808 Day everyone! This finger drumming performance is my way of celebrating "808 Day" 40 years after the release of Roland's iconic drum machine, the TR-808.

I ran some 808 drum samples (from Samples From Mars) through 4 different signal chains between which I switched live during the performance using 4 of the Launchpad Pro's pads. As always, all played live, no editing or quantisation.
