Introducing MV08, a revolutionary new drum machine for iPhone and iPad.
Inspired by one of the greatest drum machines of all time.
Re-imagined with a modern touchscreen workflow.

Check out the preview on Vimeo!


The MV08 features over 200 16bit 44.1k wav files that have been faithfully sampled from one of the most important drum machines in history. (featuring 60 samples for the kick drum alone!). On top of the original voice controls we have added Pan, Pitch and two editable send effects per voice, along with a master 3 band EQ and Distortion.


Keeping the classic XOX style sequencer from the original, we have added in some powerful updates bringing it into the 21st century: All of the voice controls can now be sequenced per step, giving you limitless freedom and possibilities to create evolving and innovative rhythms (not to mention killer bass lines!). Each pattern can be 1-64 steps long and played at either a 16 or 32 step resolution – giving you endless options to create complex time signatures and long evolving loops.


There are 8 banks of 16 patterns giving you a total of 128 user patterns to play with, ensuring you don’t run out of space when inspiration strikes. We’ve created a separate demo bank to get you started featuring some classic rhythms from time gone by. You can even record the master output and export to your favourite DAW.

Customer Reviews

Nice but...

Kibwe Brathwaite

Great sounding 808 clone. However, when switching patterns with a delay, reverb, or just a long release, the trailing sound gets cut as the pattern switches to give this unnatural effect that is not seamless. Quite undesirable for performance.

good quality,
Retro but refreshing

Solid 808 with good interface


I actually bought this app without necessarily realizing it was "another 808 clone", but it was immediately recognizable when I started hearing the sounds. The app sounds great, it's universal, and some real thought was put into the layout for tweaking the individual instruments. Some nice touches like pitch adjustment stepped by semitones, also. One thing I'd like to see is an easier way to trigger the instruments manually (you can do this on the one screen, but double tapping also inadvertently mutes that group). And I was a little lost trying to program patterns beyond 16 steps, but all the features are there, and it's probably just a learning curve. Finally, it should be an AU instrument, if it isn't already. Nice app for just a few bucks, and sure to get some use.
