Ahead of a re-sampling of the 808 From Mars, two new 16x hit 808 kits are on offer for free – recorded through an API console to tape, with a variety of high-end hardware processing along the way.

These are Samples From Mars’ best-sounding 808s yet. The kits feature clean, colored, and supersaturated 808 hits.

What’s New
  • The TR-808 itself. Samples From Mars have the best sounding TR-808 we’ve ever heard – it was serviced by an original engineer who worked for the company in the 80s, and features a Bass Drum with an unbelievable 4-second decay.
  • Upgraded gear – this was recorded through an API 1608 console, into an Apogee Symphony, a mastering reel to reel, numerous high-end saturators, and extremely clean, balanced power.
  • Experience and ears. Because of the sheer amount of hours (tens of thousands) gone into sampling since the original 808, Samples From Mars are much more experienced than ever before.
