    Did someone say 606? Remember the Roland TR-606 drum machine? You don’t but you do. 303, 909, 606… which is your favourite device?

    I thought that was a Grange Hill reference…

    Also, that Vitus looks remarkedly good value…

    606 or 808 are the ones you want. The 303 is a Bass synth/sequencer

    Sisters of Mercy used them too

    I saw the jersey in the magazine and really like the look of it!

    When I actually needed a new jersey I’ll get one.

    I might stick it on my Christmas list now ,🙂

    Or the TR- 909 which superceded them. Acid house, techno, 90’s rave tunage was largely made with Roland drum machines.Sold my Juno6 synth last year to buy a new bike😉👍

    The 808 was definitely the big influencer.
    Hence the band 808 State.
    Th the days of the analog synthesizer.

    Great Tune choices this week. I was relistening to my Warp collection earlier this week, and you can’t go wrong with a bit of Massive Attack.

    Just received my Club Shirt and it’s really nice. Great in the sunshine.

    The clasps on those hip packs are rubbish, used them on other things and once they were even a little bit, the are so easy to accidentally release.

    Yep, it has to be the 808. Used to have great fun with the one in the studio.

    @footflaps It was a Grange Hill reference. 50 points to you.

    Actually Roland was the helpee not the helper.
    I really enjoyed school btw.

    The 808 lives on (you here it all the time) and is probably the most sampled drum machine ever. The kick drum often being repurposed as a pitched bass.

    Prefer the sound of the DMX myself.

    Without the 808 there’d be no The Only Rhyme That Bites and I don’t want to live in that world

    Does the Knog Scout only work with Apple devices?

    Can I trade in my 50 points and take the Vitus instead?

    The 808 and the 303 ain’t the friends that they used to be
    You got no time for sweet 909

    @tall_martin I went one better, bought the shirt late last year, wrapped it up and my wife gave it to me as a “surprise” Christmas present! I find the best Christmas presents are the ones I purchase for the family to give to me, never disappointed or have to ask for the receipt so that I can change it.

    Has anyone ever had a 6mm hole seal in their tubeless tyre let alone a 19mm one?

    Yeah. Roland have a LOT to answer for. Some think he should still be in prison for crimes against music.
