I've had this app for a while now and it still remains fun and sounds great! The original interface implementation is spot on and the addition of the “quick pattern” function makes pattern adjustments a breeze. I would love to see AudioShare implementation, but that does not take away from what this app is designed to be - a great 808 emulation. Thank you!

Nice 2 have AU support, but one issues...

Great app, very pleased to have an 808 as an AU. I’m having one issue with it in Cubasis though. When I open a song that I made using this app, it does not retain and of the pitch or decay or any other settings that i edited, they all return to the default settings. I also wish we could save kits to use again. It would also be nice if the decay could last longer, but my main issue is with it not remembering settings when reopening songs. ,

Love it

Have all three drum machines by Elliot.
Far more accurate then most others.
Elliot make the 707, and 606 next please bro.
The touch sequencer is a great concept to these vintage machines.
