Captain Pikant shared this in-depth comparison between the updated Behringer RD-8 MKII and its predecessor, the RD-8 MKI.
The RD-8 MKII fixed some issues that users identified with the original RD-8. The company says that the RD-8 MKII uses Behringer’s clone of the Roland BA662 VCA chip, introduced last year, to more accurately recreate the sound of the original 808.
The differences are subtle enough that, as Captain Pikant notes in the video, “there’s no reason to upgrade”.
