880 Analog Drum Machine for Eurorack
The System80 880 is a recreation of the classic analog drum machine of the 1980s reformatted into a 60 HP Eurorack module. It couples the 16 analog drum voices of the original to an enhanced TR-style step sequencer.
Currently there are about three times (3X) as many people on the pre-order list as there are available units. Based on System80 experience from the first production run last year System80 knows that some people on the pre-order list don’t follow through with their order when their turn comes up. In the last run, everyone on the pre-order list that wanted an 880 got one. Demand seems a little higher this time around, but System80 anticipates that most people on the pre-order list that want an 880 should be able to get one. System80 continue to accept pre-orders as a way to gauge demand and plan future production runs.
