The Roland TR-909 is a remarkable analog drum machine! Its best feature has to be all the sounds that it provides. The amazing sounds encompass kick, snare, hand clap, open and closed hi-hats, low mid and hi toms, rim shot, ride and crash cymbals.
In no way does it sound like the real acoustic drum, but the unique sound that it produces can truly suit certain types of music. The sounds have become such classics that it’s unusual to find a modern drum machine that doesn’t include them. Each of the sounds is standard and identifiable by anyone. Sounds are tweakable – attack, tone, tuning, decay, snap and accent. Extremely popular these days, especially for dance music.
