Software 0800 Rhythm Machine for OSX and Windows

The 0800 Rhythm Machine, from 88888, is an eight-channel multi-voiced step-sequenced groove-shaping wood-panelled instrument. It is designed to be used as a standalone groove box, as a live instrument, or in conjunction with a DAW as an instrument or MIDI pattern generator.

88888 is Adam and Stephen; independent, boutique music software developers, determined to innovate, design and produce user-friendly, playful musical software flexible enough for use in the studio or live environment. The team use their experience as musicians to inform their approach to software design, which is reflected in this, their first release.

The 0800 is designed as a no-constraints tool: each channel combines multiple oscillators, the ability to load your own samples, and a flexible state-variable filter, putting the creation of any sound within reach. Create classic drum machine sounds, futuristic clicks and bleeps or wild arpeggios: The 0800 goes beyond the traditional 'boom blap' drum machine.
The unique groove shaping section of the 0800 offers powerful, detailed control over the rhythms produced. Inject feel into your patterns by adjusting the position of every note, pushing and pulling like a real drummer, or manipulate groove shaping even further, to radically resequence any pattern.

The 0800 can be controlled with a standard mouse or keyboard, and nearly every on-screen control can also be mapped via the MIDI learn function, making it ideal for use as a live instrument. It can also send and receive MIDI data, and its audio output to a DAW using free software like Soundflower (OSX), or Jack (Windows).

The 0800 is a powerful, elegant and useable piece of software for less than the price of an album.

The 0800 Rhythm Machine is out now and costs ยฃ7.

@wakestyle,

The 0800 is built in Max, which for the time being does not support building to most of the plugin formats. In fact, VST support was removed 2 version numbers ago :(
However, a port to an Ableton Live device is possible, although this isn't something we're working on right this moment.

That said, we aim to be introducing more features to speed up the workflow when using the 0800 alongside DAWs in the next version.

Interesting but only standalone? No AU? If so, I'm out, sorry.

Stand-alone only for the time being, unfortunately, for the reasons stated above. But there is extensive MIDI support which along with tools like Soundflower and Jack can help if you're looking to integrate it into your DAW workflow.
