The Iconic and Versatile 808 Sound

Nepheton 2 is a groundbreaking reinterpretation of the iconic 808, surpassing mere reproduction to deliver an authentic sound that's indispensable for crafting contemporary dance, hip-hop, R'n'B, trap, and electronic tracks. This virtual drum machine, cherished by artists like Kanye West, captures the essence of the legendary 808, a pivotal instrument in over four decades of music history. In its early days, the 808 faced commercial challenges, with Roland discontinuing it in 1983 after just 12,000 units. Today, original 808s are rare and fetch high prices.

Enter Nepheton 2, a cost-effective alternative that preserves the original sound while introducing numerous enhancements. Developed with meticulous attention to detail, Nepheton 2 not only replicates the traditional hardware components for the distinctive 808 sound but also elevates the user interface and sound emulation. The result is a seamless blend of familiarity and innovation, allowing enthusiasts of the original to dial in their sound more efficiently.

Nepheton 2 boasts a comprehensive effects section, featuring a range of algorithms from bitcrushers to reverbs, ensuring that each beat stands out with clarity and punch. Its extensive factory content library includes scenes, drum kits, and patterns ready out-of-the-box, finely tuned for modern productions.

The sequencer in Nepheton 2 introduces innovative features like the Tap function, Randomizer, and MIDI export via drag-and-drop, fostering an inspiring and efficient workflow. With independent channel strips for each drum sound, equipped with EQ and compression, meticulous sound shaping is at your fingertips. The addition of hundreds of presets, articulations like Flam and Substep variations, and a master section with multi-band compression and limiter options further expand creative possibilities.

Nepheton 2 seamlessly integrates with external hardware and software, featuring MIDI map and trigger outs, making it an integral part of any modern studio setup. This plugin stands as a testament to D16 Group's commitment to excellence in audio software, offering producers a faster route to their creative goals by combining the legendary 808 sound with modern controls.
