BD-808 is useful for creating 808-style bass drum sounds.

The underlying signal processing is based on a detailed analysis of the original 808 Bass Drum circuit. With the MIDI-Control it is also possible to use the plugin as a bass synthesizer.
  • Accent: Strength of the drum sound.
  • Level: Output level.
  • Decay: Duration of the drum sound.
  • Tone: Amount of attack-click.
  • Tune: Tuning in halftones.
  • Fine: Tuning in cents.
  • LongDecay: Extends decay range.
  • MidiSync-Tune: Tune depends on played Midi-Note.
  • MidiSync-Accent: Accent depends on Velocity of played Midi-Note.
With the MIDI Learn function you can assign any MIDI-Controller to a parameter of the bass drum.

Synsonic Instruments' BD-808 is another little gem that can quickly create an 808 kick of your liking in no time. Keeps you focused on the kick sound design without being distracted by an entire drum machine. Tested in Reason 10.

I thought this was good but then when I reloaded my DAW the plugin was dead. Guess I won't be using it after all...

Seems good to me and easy to use. The 909 generator creates more of a BOOOO tone and this 808 generator creates more of a THUMP tone, more like a real kick drum.

I put the plugin in FL Studio and when I select it it overloads the master volume and when I press any button no sound comes out

Sure it was an incredibly pure 808 bass drum tone... but it's best to use this to record an 808 drum sample to manipulate later. There's no distortion, compression, or easy way to switch pitches in the middle of a song. Authentic perhaps, but only marginally useful.

This was unusable for me, the sound was not inspiring in any way...

Désinstalle le juste au lieu de faire baisser sa note du coup

Very nice 808 maker. Maybe add a Volume envelope & distortion unit with tube & tape.
