What we say:

At A Glance:

The Behringer Rhythm Designer RD-8 gives you classic analog drum machine sounds with a 64 Step Sequencer, Wave Designer and a Dual-Mode Filter.

Behringer first caused a stir with their reinterpretation of the iconic Moog Model D. Fresh off the heals of the success of the Model D Behringer bring their re-imagining of the legendary Roland TR-808

Yet again the results are satisfyingly similar to the original. No longer do you need to rely on samples or digital emulations to get that classic 80s analog beatbox sound, the Behringer RD-8 is exactly what you need!

Do you call it a tribute or a clone? Either way, we're overjoyed to see more analog gear from Behringer!
