Based on the TR-808 Simulation AchtNullAcht for Ableton Live, a version for Elektron’s OCTATRACK is now available.
The TR-808 has a soul of its own due to its analog design … The sound of each TR-808 has its own character and with every trigger the drum modules create a variable sound. The unstable timing provides a unique groove.
AchtNullAcht for OCTATRACK simulates these characteristics.
The TR-808’s OpenHihat, for example, has the Decay parameter. During the recording process, the parameters of this drum module were set in all possible combinations, with 11 scale steps per parameter. Per setting 12 repetitions were recorded. So the AchtNullAcht Drum Kit for e.g. consists of 132 OpenHihat samples, which are triggered randomly in the background (Random Cycle) to imitate the analog character.
The AchtNullAcht sample package consists of 1392 samples and 6 projects.
