    I think a lot of this comes from whats popular in Japan, and Korg has been all over this tiny craze as well with the whole volca series which has been a success.

    If this has caused a postpone of the release, roland is really desperate in my opinion. I haven't really dug in to the subject, but going to court for a patent which is long over due is just pathetic. Now they make some claims on some colors, buttons what ever which sounds just sheer ridiculous. Roland should have done it right from the moment they start releasing their cult drum machines/synthesizers and not 3 iterations of a tr-8, tr-08 , tr8s ACB crap.

    I want one in a bad way! So if a hardware TR 08 is at around 300.
    Wonder whats the price point they are gonna hit. Berhinger is always super affordable.
    I'd be sold at $150 ..125 since i imagine that pad is strictly for the app
    very cool tho

    Yeah I just seen this maybe 2 weeks ago for the first time and just fell in love.
    Been just relentlessly searching Tweets and emailing people to find out when it was coming. Really REALLY happy to hear that it is not scraped because I think they did a spot on job of making the interface. Minor changes of course but it really looks like the caputred the feel.

    I think i heard rumor of a 707 or it probably was a 909 being made too?
    I want them all. Pokemon these damn machines!

    Last Friday, I talked to the national distributor for Behringer in California. As of last Friday, there was no RD-08 in its warehouse. If it is not there, it can't be distributed to the stores. I couldn't get any further info. The time frame was 6-8 weeks from the end of May so we are getting very close. They are coming by way of cargo ship from China. It usually takes about 30 days plus another 4-7 days for the shipment to be released.
    There is a 909 clone, too.https://audiosex.pro/threads/behrin...09-roland-tr-909-clone-to-sell-for-299.42858/ As for the 707, I guess only rumors for now.
