0 Comment

Introduced by the Roland Corporation in early 1980, the Roland TR-808 has been creating beats for artists ranging from Marvin Gaye to Kanye West. All Hail The Beat gives brief history on the machine that creates those legendary kick drum sounds.

The sounds of the Roland TR-808 drum machine inspire musicians around the world, even though the device hasn’t been made since 1984 and most of its avid users have never actually seen one.
