New Generation 808

The new TR-08 adds thoughtful and modern touches to the classic formula. The sequencer has 16 sub-steps per step, so you can create detailed snare fills and rolling hi-hats. It even supports audio and MIDI over USB.

Portable

The TR-08 is literally small enough to take just about anywhere. It’s ruggedly built with sturdy knobs, buttons, and switches. It has a built-in speaker, and even runs on batteries for when the beat absolutely must go on.

Authentic & Affordable

With all this power and flexibility, you may be most surprised by the TR-08’s affordable price, which puts the legendary 808 vibe within reach of just about anyone who’s ever dreamed of owning the iconic original without the inflated price tag.
