    1. all clone differ slightly or massivly and everyone can choose what they like or not buy at all,
      frankly, who cares. i don’t know many 808
      how many rock bands we need? how many songs about love? how many negative comments about x0x clones?
      enjoy the great time we live in.

    1. looks like the patch points on the right are under the header “outputs.” I guess we will just have to wait another 10 minutes for the next clone.

  1. they really wasted their time to clone a 808 drum machine for eurorack and forgot to include what makes modular music so mighty. no CV controls and as i see there is only one pot above the kick. no decay and no pitch, really!?!? i guess even the sequencer does not have a gate output and in fact it´s possible to use multiple sequencing if all the voices can be triggered.

    1. The kick seems to have all 3 pots (level, tone, decay). That first instrument slot is accent. The ports on the right do seem to be all audio out, but there are some extra bits on the left, deep in the blur.

  2. i’m a little afraid of the price point, though i will understand if it’s expensive, this couldn’t have come easy or quickly. i think it looks and sounds beautiful, i’m very interested in this.
