"RC808: Play with the legendary TR808 within minutes!"

The RC808 is a sample based emulation of the legendary TR-808. The 808 has been used in tons of hits during the eighties, among them "Sexual Heiling" by Marvin Gaye and “Planet Rock” by Afrika Bambaata and the Soulsonic Force. It's still widely used nowadays among hip hop and techno producers. The RC808 is a plugin emulation of the 808 with added functionalities not present in the original machine.

RC808 is available as a Windows (32 bit/64 bit) VST plugin as well as a universal Mac OS X VST and AU plugin. You need a plugin host to be able to use this program. No on-board sequencer, RC808 is controlled only by your DAW's sequencer and it's on-board preview keyboard.
