This cat is singing to accompaniment from a Behringer RD-8 Rhythm Composer and a modular system housed in Arturia RackBrute 6U case. We see offerings from Mutable Instruments, Dopfer, TipTop Audio, Behringer (again), Endorphines, and more.
This beautiful Siamese cat is holding court in a studio featuring an Akai APC40 controller (for Ableton Live), a pair of Korg Kaoss pads, and a Keith McMillen (KMI) QuNexus controller. And that appears to be a dead furby next to the cat.
Primus programs a classic Roland TR-808. From Gunfire H. Horibly via our Facebook page.
The TR-808, or simple the 808 as it is affectionately known, was not an initial commercial success. It was only in production from 1980 to 1982 And its sounds were not particularly realistic, but it did have a distinct character than some artists of the time. It has since achieved a cult following and can be heard on more recordings than perhaps any other drum machine. Roland has also released two “reboots” in recent years, a “Boutique” TR-08 version and the TR-8s for the Aira series.
