Thenatan has released X-Eight Lite, a free 808 VST/AU instrument plugin for Windows and macOS.
As the name suggests, this freebie is a reduced version of X-Eight commercial product. It comes with 80 fine-tuned 808’s & sub bass presets and has basic parameters such as glide, attack/release, HP filter and master volume. But ignore these limitations, you will get a fully functional virtual instrument.
Moving on to his bigger brother, I must emphasize its over 1000 presets from 10 expansions, HP/LP filters, a full ADSR, LFO, distortion, reverb and fine-tune pitch controls. All these come to a price, in this case is $36 USD (special introductory price). If you ask me, the price is more than correct. If you’re looking for an 808 plugin, grab it while is on sale.
But if you’re looking for a free alternative, just download the free version and take it on a test drive. X-Eight Lite is available as VST and AU plugin for DAW’s running on Windows and macOS.
