Overview

Perfect emulation of the legendary 808 drum machine.

Nepheton is an incredibly accurate emulation of the legendary 808 drum machine. All of the nuances and details of the 808 have been captured perfectly, and in addition Nepheton is equipped with additional controls that give you the ability to tweak the sound with even more precision that the original hardware version.

Outputs
Nepheton has a flexible output configuration allowing the audio signal to be routed to any of the 17 outputs. This allows you the ability to further shape sounds individually or in groups via your favorite plug-ins. Each individual output can be set to mono or stereo, and hardcore 808 fans will appreciate the original Trigger output (configurable as well).

Every instrument also has a Mute, Solo button and Activity LED. Mute will not just silence the sound; it will stop the sound being triggered. Solo will stop all other instruments from being triggered and only allow the selected sound(s) to play.

Control
Nepheton also has extensive MIDI control where MIDI notes can be used to trigger each individual sound. Alternatively, the internal sequencer can also be used. This can be set to play using Nepheton's internal clock or set to synchronize perfectly to the host sequencer. Most of Nepheton's parameters can be automated within the host and also controlled using MIDI CC with an external controller. An easy-to-use Midi Learn function allows reassignment of any of the parameters.

Internal Sequencer
Internal sequencer's memory contains two banks of patterns: simple and extended. There are 16 extended and 96 simple patterns which both can be edited traditionally using the step buttons or using the tap function.

Simple patterns are used in Host Mode where each pattern location has a MIDI note number assigned to it. With these notes you can freely control the order of played patterns. Extended pattern differs from the simple one in it has 4 segments (variation A/B and part 1/2). The whole bank of 16 extended patterns is divided into two groups of Basic Patterns and Intro/Fill In Patterns. You can choose freely from played patterns, used variations, and fill in modes (triggered automatically or manually). With multiple options available you can decide if you want the starting pattern to be preceded by an introduction pattern, or many other options.

A Randomizer function is also provided within the internal sequencer that can be used to make simple changes to a pattern or create a whole new one - an ideal feature for when your creativity needs a boost! Randomizing can be applied to specific instruments and specific steps and the frequency of occurrence can also be adjusted to give you just the right amount.

All external files are stored in the XML format. This allows single patterns or whole banks to be exchanged between users easily. XML allows the files to be edited in a text editor. Ideal if you want to post or share a pattern on a web site - just post the text!
