_natural eight

_natural eight is as authentically close to our Roland TR-808 Rhythm Composer (serial #145390) as you can get. There's a lot of 808 samples out there, we know. What we're offering is something as O.G. 808 as possible with .wav samples. 


This release is only available to our Subsocial Forever sounds plan members.


We sampled the direct out from the 808, and then directly into our converters. No colour, no fluff, no extra-extra. These are super clean. If you're a purist about this type of stuff, then these are for you.


We decided to sample a whole bunch of different tunings, tones, decays, and other things that make the real thing what it is. The 808 drum machine is essentially a drum synthesizer, so the more samples and variations you record, the more "real" it sounds. It's not just a single kick, snare, or tom sample that you pitch up and down.


Drop these samples into whatever hardware or software you like. It'll be like starting all over again with your first love.


• 249 samples. (250MB)

• Clean, unprocessed & as true to the original hardware as possible.

• 96k/32bit .wav sources.

• 100% Royalty-Free.

• Designed in Vancouver, Canada by Subsocial Studios.
