VR-08 free is a Roland TR-808 emulation.

This VSTi is built around 2134 samples recorded at 44.1 khz from a vintage unit. Parameters are designed to take advantage of this huge library, to recreate the original sound of the TR-808 as close as possible.

Free VR-08 version 64bit plugin installed on Cubase 12 Elements DAW with 44.1Khz. No sound is produced. Several other 64bit plugins works fine.

Unfortunately this isn't a free working version. It will work but you have to change your DAW sample rate to 44K - mine doesn't seem to do that. Non starter¬

I command you to just download this again. But, when asked if 44.1 or 48 chose 44.1 that option is in the same menu that asks you to agree to it's policies before downloading. May the download be with you !!

I installed the free VR-08 version plugin and I configured Cakewalk DAW for 44.1Khz, but no sound is produced from the screen neither Midi controller, any tips you could send to me?

Frequently I will lose all functionality from this plugin, as it will suddenly refuse to play any sound whatsoever, regardless of how many times I have reloaded the plugin. I would try the pro version, but I feel that it would be a waste of money. Use at your own risk.

Super! Is it possible to play a loop and select the time laps for each instrument in the free version? I didn't find the way to do it.

Doesn't work. VST loads and (conveniently loads note names in the piano roll) but no sound. Bummer

Check this video. With the free version your DAW has to be playing at the correct sample rate. https://youtu.be/2A68QaGx5v4

I have this plugin's Pro version. It's one of the first plugins I bought a few years ago when I discovered computer music and MIDI. It is great. I use it a lot. My only problem is I seem to have the file in my sites of regular deleting, which they use to verify the install. As I have to reverify from time to time. It is not often. Just 1 or 2 times a year on each machine it's on. Right now I am thinking about downloading it again for a new machine, since I haven't installed it properly there yet and there's that start menu verifier. It's not a bad price for how used it is. One of my more used plugins.

I have a problem to install VR-08 with Cubase Élément 10. I see it under my VST Plug-in Manager but not when I try to create a new instrument Track but it does not appear in that listing. THANKS

I've downloaded the vst and am trying to use it on Reaper. When I try to use it the message "unable to load the instrument wave data from sample-set" comes up. Anybody have any ideas how to fix this? Thanks

For some reason, Reaper has Problems to load Samples that are oganized in *.mse-Containers or other Container like *.bin. I've got the same Problems by using any of those Plugins with Reaper on Linux Mint 17. Since Linux Mint 18 these Problems didn't appear and the sampled Sounds are loading after starting that Plugin. I don't know whats the Problem by using Windows because I do not use Windows for 10 years

From the looks of THIS vst, I believe I may have found my Drum Machine that I had always wanted... 16 tracks to play with so that I can create a mere 4-piece garage drum kit or a monster George Kollias "NILE" doublekick metal drum kit! I just want to create simple rock patterns to go out from my PC (stereo out) into a standalone digital multi-track recorder with my acoustic guitar and bass for my own folk-rock demos. I've tried a few standalone drum machines in the past, such as the Yamaha RX5 and RX7 machines, and the Alesis SR16... While I've had some nice results with the Yamaha RX machines, I've had to fracture my brain setting up the Alesis SR16 from kit-design to tuneup and effects tweaking, thus spending more time tweaking a machine than actually recording and Jamming my own music. This VST seems to offer so much flexibility that I wouldn't mind spending time tweaking around with this VST to get the sounds I want and simply commit my finalized drum track to CD for my music. Thank you so much for this FREE VST, you've saved me hundreds of dollars on music gear! Thanks!!!

This thing is rad. Rad rad rad. I wish I could get it to work in my LMMS just so I could record the midi. It sounds great recorded as audio. I wanna try the 96kHz and probably will buy the upgrade to pro. I just love the 80s too much. Are there any more presets with the pro version?

It´s always great to support a developer of free VSTs, buying a upgraded version! But there is absolutly no information at there website about more sophisticated presets...

Great sounding 808, maybe the best sound VST out there.
