Behringer released RD-8 MkII
Behringer released RD-8 MkII, an updated version of their Classic Analog Drum Machine with 16 Drum Sounds, 64 Step Sequencer, Wave Designer and Dual-Mode Filter.
In our constant pursuit for perfection and authenticity, we proudly introduce the new RD-8 MKII, the most authentic analog recreation ever produced.
This drum machine has been re-designed from the ground up with carefully selected components and circuitry, which have dramatically improved the sound of the voices as well as noise and phase response across both the main and individual outputs.
Most importantly, our engineers – together with our Coolaudio semiconductor sister company – successfully recreated the 40-year-old BA662 chip, which is instrumental for the authentic voices of this instrument.
We’re proud to deliver the most authentic and accurate analog drum machine recreation ever produced.
We Hear You.
Great care has been taken in designing the RD-8 MKII to achieve new possibilities in beat creation by reviving a timeless analog design from one of the most classic drum machines of yesteryear. By taking a fresh and modern approach on a classic drum machine, the RD-8 MKII gives you the power to harness the phenomenal sound of the 808 and tap into some new features as well. Now with a faithful reproduction of the legendary 662 OTA chip, you will have in your hands the most authentic sounds that you can create in a modern drum machine. Colossal bass drums through to sizzling hi-hats can be manipulated to elevate your rhythm performance to the next level. This is an analog beat-making monster!
