The Simmons SDS-800 is an analog 80s drum synth, responsible for the cosmic syn-tom ('beeww beeww') sounds used on countless disco, boogie & reggae recordings. In the 90s, it became re-popularized in the techno world, with the raw, resonant white noise oscillator being used for jarring hi hat and snare programming. And most recently, the Simmons drum sounds have become a signature for punk funk groups like LCD Soundsystem.

All of the different Simmons brains vary in sound, and the SDS800 is no exception, easily holding its own against the bigger (and much more expensive) SDSV. The voices are a bit tighter and faster, the resonance on the snare is capable of a wider range of sounds, and the 2nd skin Toms are 2nd to none. We tracked the 800 mostly raw, to allow for maximum subtractive sculpting in your sampler or DAW of choice, only occasionally applying compression with an 1776 to some bass drums. Recording the majority of hits to tape, we twisted the (many) knobs in all types of combos for the snare, getting many variations of resonance, envelope and filter settings. To create "hi hats", we incorporated an additional (Moog) high pass filter.
