Yocto 808 TR-808 Clone unboxing


So the other day I received the Yocto 808 kit which I had on back order a while back. Basically, it is an exact clone (apart from I think one component) of the Roland TR-808. As you can see from the bag and bags of components, I have a massive task ahead of me, but I’m eager and I’ve already started, updates to follow.

Keep an eye on my progress here:

Cricket chirps slowed Right down Sound like angels…


Tom Waits (on Jim Wilson): “Wilson, he’s always playing with time. I heard a recording recently of crickets slowed way down. It sounds like a choir, it sounds like angel music. Something sparkling, celestial with full harmony and bass parts – you wouldn’t believe it. It’s like a sweeping chorus of heaven, and it’s just slowed down, they didn’t manipulate the tape at all. So I think when Wilson slows people down, it gives you a chance to watch them moving through space. And there’s something to be said for slowing down the world.”
