Roland TR-808 Vs Roland TR-08 With The Egyptian Lover

This video, via PSSL ProSound and Stage Lighting, captures a demo of the new Roland TR-08, along with a head-to-head comparison against the classic Roland TR-808, featuring The Egyptian Lover (Greg Broussard).

Note: The comparison section suffers from an important limitation – the level of the 808 is noticeably louder than the TR-08, which can significantly bias the results. In addition, the sounds are tweaked in different ways on the two devices.
