Tactile Sounds TS-808

Tactile Sounds has released version of TS-808, a virtual drum instrument plug-in for Windows which emulates the Roland TR-808 drum machine.

Not one, but two new versions of the TS-808 are available. Both are included in the download. There is a mono version which is an update of the TS-808 you know and love, and there is also, by popular demand, a stereo version, with panning for each voice. Both versions feature a sexy new interface designed by Limeflavour. Additionally, both versions now feature standard GM voice mapping, in addition to the idiosyncratic Tactile Sounds take on what number goes where. Both versions also have LEDs indicating voice activity, and mute buttons for each voice. Thanks to everyone who provided feedback, especially sink.

Changes in TS-808 v10.0.2

  • Standard GM Voice Mapping.
  • New GUI, designed by Limeflavour.
  • LEDs indicating Voice Activity.
  • Voice Mute Buttons.
  • Compiled with the latest version of SynthEdit, reducing CPU consumption.
  • Panning for each voice (stereo version only).

TS-808 is available to download as a freeware VST instrument for Windows PC.
