This pack is built from samples from an original Roland TR-808 processed with the very sought after Fairchild 670 compressor.
We recorded all voices in the 808 at various tone / decay / tuning settings wherever the 808 allows it. Given the interplay between drum machine and compressor decays, all 808 decays and Fairchild settings were done to taste, according to what sounded best at the time.
At studios 301 we ran the 808 direct into the Fairchild compressor via the Apogee Rosetta 200 converters and then into Live. We monitored it via the SSL 9000k series mixing desk and huge Genelec 1039a mains monitor speakers so we could clearly hear everything - especially the bass, tails and noise levels.
