AcidLab Miami was released in 2014, and is a budget reminiscence of the famous drum machine TR-808. Miami has a lightweight design, but it is made of durable metal. Small round buttons do not match the color range of Roland, most of them are either yellow or pink-red. Acidlab gave Miami 11 individual outputs. There is also a 3.5 m output, which is potentially useful for integration with other synthesizers or sequencers, but is not suitable for trigger outputs.

The sound scheme of Miami replicates TR-808, and was implemented using modern components. Everything from cowbell to claves, from bass to hi-hat, follows the footsteps of the legendary TR-808. Their layout on the surface (including 5 switches) fully correspond to the genius of drum machines. There you can choose between the claves and rimshots, maracas and claps, three tunable toms and kongas.

When listening attentively, there are no deviations from a very specific set of timbres of TR-808, there are only 2 intentional deviations in the parameters of bass drums. The first is quite subtle: in order to add a bit of hum or click, you need to tweak the "turn" knob counter-clockwise, not clockwise. The second deviation is the long-awaited extra control to add maximum reverberation to the drums.

The drum voices are quite satisfactory, and the presence of TR-808 spirit is obvious.
