The true magic of the Roland TR-808 Is in it’s lively sound.  It really sounds stunning in a way no samples ever seem to capture.  It isn’t just the analog circuits performing in real time.  It’s the fact that your patterns have not only notes, tempo, and pattern but also accent!

The accent is programmed just like any other instrument on the grid and has a master amount adjustment by the kick drum controls.  Which ever steps you choose to accent really pop out and add a huge amount of dynamic energy to the pattern.  Its very impressive.  Super dynamic and sounds great!
