I'm guessing you don't have Live Suite, or are not too impressed with Drum Machines in Live Suite's samples ?

The best 808 sounds IMHO are from Nepheton, a vst/au plugin by D16. These are not mere samples, but actually synthesized like a real 808.
http://www.d16.pl/index.php?menu=153

currently on sale for 40% at 59 euros.

As for Samples - lots to choose from, 808 samples are all over the web from free to mucho cash.

Short of owning a real TR808 though, Nepheton is more realistic to the original sounds. Ditto D16's 909 emulation, Drumazon.

Nothing like a tape-saturated sample though. At least not without a shitload of work.

there is - create a tape saturated sample of your own using Nepheton :wink:

BTW - I don't work for D16. But if they're watching and want to give me any freebies, I'm a shameless gearslut and will accept :mrgreen:

sooooo would you say nephton is just a plugin that is just an 808 kick? or does it have like the snare as one "preset" and the kick as a separate preset??? If it isn't, does anyone know of anything like that?!?! Or any 808 kick/bass vst/plugin?!?!?!
