This new 808 clone sounds awesome...

Behringer have shared a video previewing their new clone of Roland’s classic drum machine, the TR-808.

Yesterday, the Swiss music tech brand announced the BD-808 drum machine with a video on Facebook. The drum machine's spec and playability is showcased in the promotional video, but there are few other details available at the moment. More information is expected to be released on 9th September.  As with most Behringer products, the BD-808 is expected to come at a very reasonable price of under $400. It is not Behringer's first clone of the TR-808, having teased their RD-808 back in May.
