Since producing my last sample pack “LoFi House” (which is mainly based on sounds from old drum machines and analog synths) was so much fun I couldn’t help but continue working on analog drum sounds. Now I’m giving away some free 909 samples & loops. Click on the button above to get access or scroll down a bit to learn more about the pack:

This VST is based. Sep 15, 2016 Free Roland TR-909 Rhythm Composer Drum Machine VST Emulation DR-910 by MaxSynths for standard House and Techno beatbox.
The TR-909 Rhythm Composer (invented by Tadao Kikumoto) is without any doubt one of the most iconic drum machines ever made. It was first manufactured in 1983 by Roland and had along with the TB-303 synth a huge impact on the development of genres, such as house, acid house or techno.
Whereas its predecessor, the Roland TR-808 is rather known for a clean sound and a long sub bass, the 909 comes with a punchy and saturated drum sound.
The drum machine is most famous for its dirty kick drum and open hat which is usually placed between the kick hits. Furthermore, the 909 is known for a shuffle mode, which moves notes slightly off-grid, resulting in a certain “groove”. This groove can additionally be adjusted using the “flam” and “accent” features.
Considering that the 909 was a milestone in the history of dance music (although it financially flopped) it’s clear that you can find its sounds in countless records.
From today’s perspective the 909 sound is rather old school, so I decided to adapt my free 909 samples to the requirements of current productions using a variety of modern processing tools.
I made sure, however, to also include some rather lo-fi or old sounding samples, some of which are strongly saturated, so you can use the kit for a variety of different styles.
In addition to the one shots I also made 20 drum loops, that I stemmed out in different groups resulting in a total of 100 TR-909 loops.
