Hi folks. Do any of you know if there is such a thing as a full "software " recreation of the iconic Roland CR-78 drum machine?. I'm not looking for samples of it I can find plenty of samples of it on line. No, I'm looking for a full CR-78 recreation in software that has the look (front panel layout) and all the preset patterns not just the sounds. Tell me, does such a thing exist? And if not, why not?

The closest thing I can think of is Funkbox for IOS. It's inspired by machines like the CR-78 and does have CR-78 sounds, but it's not an actual emulation. A faithful CR-78 app would be great though.

Elektrostudio's Rhytmus seems to be based on CR-78, at least to my ears.
Rhytmus Machine
UI is different, but the rhytms are there.

I'll second Funkbox. It's great for zipping around in and trying out new ideas. Sounds good,too.

Seems the shop is closed right now so you can't actually buy it, but there you go
