Behringer Cloning Classic Drum Machines, Including The Roland TR-808, TR-909 & More

Along with teasing its plans for six new synth clones, Behringer has updated its site with information on five new drum machines, including clones of the Roland TR-808 and TR-909, Linn & Oberheim drum machine clones & more.

Their plans for cloning the Roland drum machines may pose some interesting challenges, since Roland has sued Behringer previously for copying the look of their products, and the original Roland TR-909 uses samples, which creates a copyright barrier for cloning.

Behringer has not released any photos or release plans for the new gear yet, just the following specifications:

RHYTHM DESIGNER RD-808

Pricing and Availability

To be announced.

Update: Behringer has updated the Musictribe site to remove info for these products.
