I have an 888 as well. This unit has really great sound and features. The bass isn't hitting as hard, but the mbrane, fm synth and SEQ of notes are really awesome. The Chain feature is great as well. It doesn't do individual edits that 888 has, hopefully that will come in the future. The p-Locks work well, but not as fully functional as the individual edit in my opinion. I thought this would replace my 888, instead I am keeping them both and I find myself using them together as they are totally different beasts at this time. There may be more features of the 888 coming to the AB in the future, making the 888 less needed, but for now it is the greatest thing out there. If you used 888 midi tracks, the AB does it to with any instrument and Seq function. IE, it will transmit on MIDI 10, for x-sample 1 transmitting notes via the SEQ function.

Modern 808/909 fusion. Seems to be working properly so far!

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
