Also on board: d16 Nepheton – The final word on 808
No other drum machine has been copied in hardware or software as often as Roland‘s TR-808, and it‘s no wonder. It has, after all, influenced countless musical genres, from Hip Hop and Electro to Techno and House to R&B, Pop and Trap. One of the best virtual replicas of this cult device is without doubt the d16 Nepheton. Value: 99 Euro.
