With the RD-8 MkII Rhythm Designer, Behringer presents the completely redesigned version of the successful Roland TR-808 clone, keeping the addition of modern and effective features. Launched in 1981, Roland's TR-808 made music history like no other drum machine. Whether electro, House or hip-hop, the sound of an 808 has had a firm place in the music world since the 80s! The distinctive and puristic analog sound has lost none of its authenticity and is now even more true to the original than ever before. Behringer has taken special care to ensure that all sounds are reproduced exactly. The MkII version is equipped with a faithful reproduction of the legendary BA662 OTA chip. This has made it possible to give the RD-8 an even more authentic sound that is in no way inferior to the original sound. A total of 16 instruments are distributed on the 11 available tracks, which are adjustable in volume and partly in other parameters.


The sequencer has 256 patterns for your own beats, which can be up to 64 steps long. Even odd steps can be programmed individually for each track. The groove parameters Shuffle and Flam, which are indispensable for Chicago Sound and House, have also been integrated. Absolutely performance-oriented is the trigger function, which repeats a pre-selectable range (1, 2, 4, 8 steps) of sequencer steps in Step Repeat Mode until the key is released. Optionally there is Note Repeat, which triggers the selected instrument in four speed levels; perfect to spontaneously bring variety into the pattern!

Analog Effects

The main output has two special features: on the one hand there is a switchable Lowpass/Highpass-Filter with manually adjustable cutoff and resonance, on the other hand the Wave Designer; a compressor-like effect that processes the transient and decay times. Depending on the setting, the signal becomes pumpy, spongy or slightly choppy. In addition, you can send the individual outputs through an external effect device such as a Delay, bring them back in via the Return socket and thus also process them with the two internal effects.
