Watch A Video Of A Module That Looks And Sounds Like An 808

This thing has the “boom” that you crave.

It was only a matter of time before some crack team of engineers would figure out how to almost exactly replicate the TR-808 for modular synthesizer heads. Behold, The System 80, an absolute beauty of a Eurorack module. It sports an incredibly familiar control-for-control, button-for-button TR-808-style layout. It has individual outs for each sound and on-board MIDI (which, as you probably know, was not included on the original). It’s also open source.

But, more importantly, it sounds phenomenal.

Watch it in action below and once you’ve stopped convulsing with excitement, sign up for the System 80 mailing list here.
