Apparently today is the 30th anniversary of the Cassette. Create Digital Music has a great walk down memory lane worth checking out: Happy 30th, Sony Walkman: Your Memories and the Best of Cassettes on CDM

Another TR-808 clone.

There’s no drum machine like the Roland TR-808. It has kick that goes from a sharp click to boom and snares and hats that sound like chrome lightning. Since Roland never released the 808 and used prices are up and up it’s no wonder clones are arriving. We already have the Miami from Acidlab and as you can see above the MB808 from intellijel could be coming our way. I say yay.
