What is an 808?

The original Roland 808 drum machine was introduced in 1980, and ever since, the 808 kick sound has become arguably one of the most iconic and widely recognized sounds in music production

These days, the 808 drum kit is still used everywhere and especially in modern hip hop music. Even if it isn’t a direct sample from the original 808 drum machine, most people refer to any sine wave in the sub frequency range as an “808”.

In recent years, producers have been stretching the limits of 808s and using distortion, saturation, eq, and compression to shape them into sounds very different from the original Roland 808 drum sample.

If you are looking for a wide variety of 808 samples that represent all of the different forms of the 808, without going through the same recycled 808s that just get renamed and put in different sample packs, here are some recommendations on our favorite free 808 drum kits.
