I know... long time ago but I'm back :)
just being here to tell you that my TR-8060 full analogue drumsynth is almost finished. It combines the sounds from the 808 and 606 in just one device ;)
Based on the original circuit layouts from Roland I have made a compact PCB measuring 300mm x 160mm so you can build your own TR-8060 drumsynth for under 250 euros. (believe me... it IS
It's without sequencer yet, just with +5V instrument & accent trigger inputs for each instrument so you can build this machine with your own sequencer, or with a cheap MIDI to trigger circuit.
In the spirit of open source i'm planning to give all the documentation and PCB files for free (only for private use, NO commercial use Mr. T! :twisted: ), but it will also be possible to buy kits from me containing a professional made PCB and some rare parts which are needed. otherwise you have to make the PCBs by yourself.
there's a little movie which is showing you the machine during development and testing phase. unfortunately from a cellphone... but you'll get an idea about the sound and it's quality. TR-8060 development
give me just a few weeks more to get it all together and for a website.
I'll let you know once it has startet :mrgreen:
