I just went to the eight-oh-eight.org site and … it’s dead. Panic briefly set in, but I remembered that Doug owns midiboxaddict.com, so I checked there and found a note! Here’s what it says right now:
DIY MIDI Projects
February 2014: MB-808 Still Alive
Yes, the MB-808 web site is offline. No, the project has not died or disappeared. Moogah didn’t pay the web hosting bill and he changed the password so I can’t login and pay it myself. I sent him an email message about it and will take care of things as soon as I can.
This weekend, February 22 and 23, 2014, I will try to recreate the web site here on MIDIboxAddict.com.
Quick Status Update
As far as I know, I have processed all refunds that were requested in 2013. I have two refund requests to process from this year. (Yes, requests from batch four have been moved up in the queue.) If you’d like a refund, please ask now, as I will be processing shipments next month (March) and will be asking for final payment then.
You can contact me at doug at midibox addict dot com.
Previously juggernautmusic.com reported on the MIDIbox MB-808 project, a long-overdue TR-808 clone project being looked after by Doug Wellington in Arizona.
As a result of the previous blog entry, juggernaut music amasses a significant number of hits for people searching for MIDIbox 808. So as a service to those who are searching for answers, this post will serve as a pointer to Doug’s temporary page.
I am in no way affiliated with the project and I have not personally heard from Doug in years. Like many people, I did provide a deposit for a “batch 3″ kit, and I remain eager to start building.
