The RC-808-PLG of Analog Mafia re-creates the famous Roland TR 808 but it delivers much more. It’s a real analog drum synthesizer plugin, created by R&D technicians that worked for Roland in the past.
The RC-808-PLG is a very versatile and surprising VST plugin created by a handful of R&D technicians that worked for Roland in the 70’s and 80’s. The Re-Create 808 plugin emulates the original 808 sound with all analog sources like it was intended. So it is not a drum machine but it is much more, it is a drum synthesizer with 16 drum sources which are all analog synthesizers.
You can download the plugin from the RC-808 website, it can be downloaded for MAC and Windows 64 bit. Just click on the download button which will give you a zip file with the plugin and the preset folders.
The Windows zip file holds several folders.
- You can work with a standalone version which you can find at the Windows.exe folder it has several exe files that you can try. One is the original 808, the other is a simple drum sequencer to use, you can find a separate manual for this in the manual folder. And there is also a Virtual MIDI port installer.
- Next there is a folder with the VST3 version. And as you can see, this version is not version 1, it is still 0.1.3 so there might be some bugs in it.
- Next you will find a folder with all the manuals.
- And finally two folders with some data which holds the presets.
In the video we explain how you can use the different exe files and the VST plugin, and we explain how to load and edit the sounds.
