I really like the lightness of the 606, it sits really well with something heavier I think. The hats are expressive too, with the way they interact when layered and accented in various ways.
The TR8s nails the 606 kick, snare, and toms, as far as my ears go when A/Bing with an original. The cymbal/hats, less so. I've found myself using the TR8s for sample-based drum machine material (importing all my old samples of the 505, RZ-1, RX11 etc) but not so much for the modelled sounds.
I am hoping that the RD-8 will finally satisfy my craving for decent analogue 808 sounds at a price I can justify!
