Miami Bass Roland tr 808

I have a real Roland tr 808 drum machine and was wondering what UAD plug ins would be used for that Miami bass sound or those early Tommy Boy Records, Thanks CV

I highly doubt very much processing was done on those records. It's likely the bass was punched up quite a bit in mastering.

you might be right

A friend of mine made an interesting point that those early recordings were recorded to 2 inch tapes and explained that EQ and mastering had a big thing to do with that big 808 clear sound.
