Future Music Review

The bass from the Roland TR-808 drum machine has been the block-rocking backbone of everything from '80s hip-hop to the post-dubstep landscape of today. Those three numbers are synonymous with the type of bottom-end boom that producers the world over want all up in the grill of their tracks. Sample Magic have harnessed the power of the 808 bass shot in this Ableton rack. It's the classic sound at your fingertips, plus all the pots and parameters you need to tweak and work the sound that comes out your speakers. Clean or dirty, EQ passed over the top, or saturated into fresh new dimensions. It's your call. This sound will always be waiting, and begging to be twisted up by every generation that comes through. 8/10
