$60k worth of Classic Old Dinosaurs. Nice. But, I'm little impressed with HOW MUCH than with HOW we USE it.
... Like was stated here on RTalk... or was it PHead's forum....?
"it'll be a 16 year old with an iPad that'll make the next hit record,'
- so, I wouldn't brag too hard about the Dollar Amount, BoomBastix.
But, God has been Good to You. Indeed.
Who's you're Straw Man that said " thinking it will get you "the sound""...? It wasn't me.
The conversation would be much more productive without such Red Herrings, Boombastix - including your presumption on "why" I want an RD-808.
But, since you're interested enough to comment, I'll explain:
I want the TR-808 KICK. That's all. OUT of the BOX. Everything else is Gravy.
If it doesn't work - a REAL 808. But, maybe I can save $3500-7500.
Get it, Bb? No Thanks on the VST collection you have. I have most if not all of it..... but, you never bothered to Ask.
There is no Piece of Software that sounds like the TR-808 Kick. Period. If you know of one post it. please.
Not "convenient". Not "all stored with your song..." Not "multiple instances".
And, for God's Sakes, Not an "analog type sound." ANALOG. ...
If you like "analog-type sounds", then Great. I don't want to 'kinda make music.'
Godspeed with your Sound, Boombastix.

I have about $60k of hw including a bunch of analog synths (Korgs, Rolands, a BIT...). The modern VSTs are way more convenient. For a Model D sound just get "The Legend", all stored with your song, presets, tweaks, automation, no external pre-midi sync and so on...
Another example I have an UREI optical compressor, but I use my VST, because it is great and everything saved in the song, I can use multiple instances, and so on...
Get a HW for knobs and tweakability and inspiration if you want - I recommend it. But thinking it will get you "the sound" is just plain wrong. I can use my Maschine Studio, Korg MS-20 (original, not mini), or my Nord 1, or a Roland analog for playing with knobs. But The Legend or Diva does a perfect for creating a GOOD analog type sound.
