With the abundance of affordable, analogue clones of classic kit out there, a whole new generation of music-makers are able to get those classic sounds without having to get their mitts on expensive, hard-to-obtain, ridiculously over-priced and unreliable bits of so-called ‘classic’ hardware. Take the MFB-522 and Mode Machines x0xb0x for example. To get your hands on a ‘real’ TB303 and TR808 would be the best part of £4k and here we have a demonstration showing that you can have those sounds for a fraction of the cost. In fact, the figure that could be saved might be as large as £3,200 and we reckon that that’s where the smart money will go.
