Roland TR-808 Midi Kit

Here’s another familier job, this time it’s fitting a midi kit into a Roland TR-808. As we did before, the midi kit is fitted internally and a new socket is placed where the din sync socket used to be. What this means is that cosmetically nothing is changed on the machine. The new socket doubles as din sync as well as midi. The new switch has three positions instead of two. Operation is the same except when the switch is in the middle position midi is activated. You can play all the drums from a standard midi keyboard with a special midi/sync cable (comes with the kit)

Here’s a video of the completed job
