I found this broken at a local shop and fixed some problems. First there was the powersupply broken and needed replacement (+15, -15, +5 Volt) Next up it was not possible to load the OS via the floppydrive (are all the included disks failed?) so i replaced it with a gotek+display+rotary. Now it works fine and got thousands of sounds on USB;)
Here is my final take on modification of 808´s. After building different clones the original is here – finally. I will perform this mods in the external breakout box with non destructive wiring, everything is reversible. Mod price incl. material is 808€ (plus CHD/Kenton MIDI Kit if preferred) Mods can be switched on/off to original state: BD Tune, BD Env1/2, SD OSC1 Pitch, SD Snappy Decay, Rim/Clave Pitch, Clap Reverb Vol, Hihat/Cym Metal/Pink Noise Switch, Metal Pitch (HH,CYM,COW)!!

Studer A820 controlled by serial remote controller, resoldered 9pin cable (different studer pinout) to a usb-serial converter directly to Max/MSP (M4L) in Ableton Live. Now it reads the timer, but i will add some more functionality like biasing other audio parameters as well:) its unbelievable how future proof the whole design in the mid 80´s already was!!! What drove me crazy (together with Deborah and Daniel as well, thx for your help my friends!) was that Studer did not really document their special pinout for the serial connector. more info…read more
In October 2017 G and eorge Lazenbleep and Medallion Man headed to Dresden, for the Circuitcontrol festival, a week of hacking, soldering and live performance. In the first of a series of articles from the festival, we met up with Jacob Korn. I won’t talk about his recording career, as I’m much more interested in his work as an engineer. We met 4 years ago in Dresden, and I remember spending an evening together geeking out about an 808 kick drum circuit I built. We talked about his 909 at the time, and I…read more
For their latest release, Brooklyn’s Let’s Play House crew has looked far beyond the Five Boroughs, securing a first label release from Uncanny Valley regular Jacob Korn. The Dresden producer predictably hits his stride immediately, wrapping wonky, bass-heavy acid lines around rock solid kick drums and open cymbals on throbbing opener „Wrong Way“. There’s an altogether looser, sweeter feel about „Old Man in Love“, with Korn successfully employing glistening jazz guitar motifs, jaunty piano riffs and all manner of hazy vocal samples. The „Version“ mix of the same track is…read more
Rat Life Records presents Serial Error a Project by Credit 00, Jacob Korn & Sneaker. This outfit was brought to life in 2013 when Red D called for some New Beat style tracks for his “Our Beat Is Still New” Compilation. Flying a bit too low under the radar ever since Rat Life decided to reissue Drum Abuse on a Super Sound Maxi Single. The Track was made in Jacob Korn’s headquarter studio / synthesizer museum. The task distribution was hit quickly: Jacob squeezing the acid out of his huge…read more
Egal ob Musik auf Vinyl, Fotos per Sofortbildkamera oder Brettspiele: Analoge Produkte erleben gerade eine Renaissance. Woher kommt die plötzliche Sehnsucht nach dem Analogen und wo in unserer digitalisierten Gesellschaft hat es noch seinen Platz? Auch in der Musik ist der Analog-Trend angekommen, selbst in eher unerwarteten Genres: Der Dresdner Musiker Jacob Korn produziert seine Elektro-Musik fast ausschließlich mit analogen Synthesizern. Er schwört auf den unverwechselbaren Klang der jahrzehntealten Sammlerstücke und nimmt dafür auch die umständliche Handhabung in Kauf. xenius-JK-cut Land : Deutschland, Jahr : 2017, Herkunft : WDR
