Ex Roland engineers release freeware software drumsynthesizer

Pretty great sounding .
It only works standalone and it needs a midi loopback device when sequenced from the included sequencer .
The soundengine is stand alone and can be sequencedfrom your hardware seq ( if you have any )
Lot’s of parameters to tweak and it sounds pretty great too


Link to the software?

Are you serious?
~~there is literally page on their site rc808 download.

Ah! The “post a link to a page that makes people look for the link to thing you are actually talking about”

That page would have made for a better link than “About us”

np. Thanks for posting this!

Think it would run under WINE?

Mac and Linux will follow soon, but I hope they also will make a VST version. Why standalone, I don’t geddit.

Possibly it’s working, but I don’t use wine and I try to go 100% Linux.

How do you know? Is there more info somewhere?

Damnit, sorry, I misread the 3rd disabled link as “Linux coming soon”, instead it’s written “ref manual coming soon”.

Damn, it sounds really good. Never heard other software sound so “broken” and analog before.
