Over the past few months, two analog Roland TR-808 clones have been in talks. One from Behringer under the name RD-808 and the 880 from System80 in Eurorack format. The latter now comes as a desktop unit with the same features.

More exactly: the developer is working on a powered desktop case for the 880 Eurorack module with external trigger inputs, MIDI out, Sync24 in/out, run/clock/rest control, sub-mixer with insert, balanced out, headphone amp and more.
