Wow I wanna say I am impressed with the effort to save this wonderful beast of a machine. My hat is off to all who are trying.

I have searched high and low to find a replacement for my beloved sp808 preferably portable.

Incomes the iPad but no success in finding apps that do what half the sp808 can do. So I set about building a sampler /looper using a Raspberry Pi but the hardware connecting with Python programming language has proven to be quite difficult for me any ways. So back to the iPad, I looked at Swift programming language, watched some tutorials.

So now I have decided to build an sp808 IOS app minus the 4 channel digital recorder and d-beam . So it will have the sampling and looping capabilities of the sp808 and to keep it simple for now no effects but I am sure we can add that later. Another idea was to incorporate the IOS app called Samplr into it where you can manipulate the wav file in realtime with the iPads touchscreen...how cool would that be.

I wrote the Samplr developer in hopes that he will either release the code as open source or work with me on this project ...stay tuned.

Hello,
I'm posting to see if anyone got the SP-808 drive up amd running. I've been trying to find a working ATAPI flash drive for ages. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you

Unless HaQue can enlighten us to the contrary, you might like to try the SalvationData adapter with my suggested ATA-to-ATAPI modification.

Ive got the adapter, but been too busy in all aspects of work/home to go further. I bought a mainboard of the unit to try and do additional testing but the shonky eBay seller gave me the wrong board (control board not a mainboard), and will not answer email or phone. I still plan to buy an 808 but just tied up.
