Hi,
I found a used 808 with internal cf reader at a reasonable price and maybe I'll buy it. Coming from sp-606 ,I downloaded 808 manual and was a bit disappointed ,because there are not many effects.

I read about people "updating" to 808ex OS but can't find the manual.

Are there any differences ,especially in FX section?

Are you looking at the effects list on page 98 of the manual?

These 20 effects listed are just the main effect groups. If you look under the column 'Template effects patch' you'll see they're labelled from P80 to P99.
On the sp808 there are multiple preset versions of these 20 main effect groups from P01 to P99 as well as U (user) 01 - 99 which is, what, 198 different fx patches, which all can be edited/step-modulated/bpm matched/tweaked in the menu screens.

I don't know 606, but the 808 is a beast.

Thanks for the feedback, but I don't have the 808ex manual. Is it the same samplerwith the 808?

I have the 808 myself, not the ex.. and I'm not sure there is a separate manual for the ex (tho' I imagine there would/should be, it's funnily enough not listed on the Roland support site)

But the product page states the ex has "New vocal and guitar multi-effects, 10-band vocoder, Voice Transformer and Mic Simulator" ... whether this means they removed some of the patches from the original 808 to make space or not, maybe..

Anyways, yeh.. the way effects patches are stacked in various combinations with all parameters mix-and-match/editable in the back-end is just one reason I'll always be loyal to this machine. To compile a comprehensive effects list, outlining how and with which combinations of effects are stacked, with 198 entries in the list, is a pretty massive job tho.. sorry, I won't be taking on!
