Sonus Instruments Eight Ohh Tape 808

So what are you waiting for, do you want us to give you the spiel about how we gathered our collective 808 samples together, poured a dram of fine whiskey each and decided whos 808 was the best, then loaded them up into Pro Tools and slammed them through a Studer A-820 2-inch tape machine to offer you three flavours, normal, 30ips or 7.5ips, then packed them into our #foundryfriday drum machine skin and packaged them up for you to enjoy, then don’t. Scroll down, and grab a copy now. It’s free.
