I own a Roland 808 and a Roland 909 (originals). I'm thinking of maybe switching to newer clones/replicas but I'm not sure of the objective standard of those. I usually combine the 808 and the 909 for my drum track but recent years I think that computers and hardware clones are getting closer to the real thing. I don't desperately need the money but I also use it less and less. I use Ableton Live and sometimes Cubase and the Focusrite audio interface.
Do you think that I can get (almost) as good sound quality with software or hardware clones and if yes, which ones?
