Nepheton 2 is here: D16’s perfect, booming 808 recreation joins 909

This is what many drum machine fans were waiting for: following their remade 909, D16 has its 808 plug-in reboot, and it looks and sounds gorgeous. Here’s what’s new.

RP-8 is a “demake” of the ReBirth RB-338 for the PICO-8 fantasy console

ReBirth, the software recreations of the TB-303 and TR-808, helped launch Propellerhead (now Reason Studios) and demonstrated acid could be made on a PC. Now, imagine that software in 2023 but – much lower fidelity. Like, much worse. 128×128 pixel UI worse.

XODES are helping make 1U Eurorack a thing with tiny 808 modules – and more [hands-on]

Soundmit – XODES Kickstarter for 808-style 1U modules is live. These are fun, bite-sized modules and I can also say – they sound great. There’s more good 1U stuff in store, too.
