OVERVIEW CS-808 is a collection of 16 sample-based Max For Live drum instruments faithfully replicating the 16 sound modules available on the iconic TR-808. It comes with 4900+ samples managed by multiple sample selectors, a set of extra features to shape the sounds, a super friendly user interface and 16 FX Racks to mangle the drums.
CONCEPT Sampling is far the best way to digitally reproduce a specific setting of an hardware drum machine. And this is what we have done, very meticulously. Take for example the original TR-808 Bass Drum module, comprising of Accent, Tone and Decay parameters. If you split each parameter in 11 steps, for example from 0 to 10 as on the original hardware, you obtain 1331 possible combinations (11*11*11). And in fact, the CS-808 Bass Drum module is based on 1331 samples. So, when you select Accent, Tone or Decay in your CS-808 BD module, you are just loading and playing the sample related to that parameter combination of the original TR-808.
CUSTOMIZE In addition to the original TR-808 parameters/selectors (Accent - Decay - Tone - Tuning - Snappy), the 16 drum instruments come also with 16 sound-specific Audio Effect Racks and with a set of extra features (Multi-Filter and Pitch Envelope sections) not present in the original TR-808 but very useful to radically shape the sounds.
