TR-808 vs MFB-522

Posted on 20 February 2013 by MasterDelight


Making beats is paramount to making music. The TR-808 is a cornerstone to so many hip-hop (and more) musical compositions that it’s hard to think that another machine nearly half its size could ever compete. However, the MFB-522 has been making steady strides as a competitor to the 808. Purists would poo poo the argument that anything can touch the 808 but we think those open minded could see the value in the 522.

Here is a great video by lesingemonotone that helps compare the two machines.
