BEHRINGER Announced RD-909 Analog Drum Machine (TR-909 Clone) & RD-808 Demo!

BEHRINGER has crashed the Roland 909 day with the new RD-909 drum machine, an analog TR-909 clone with several new features and improvements!

After the announcement of the RD-808 drum machine it was no real secret that BEHRINGER will also clone the TR-909 fron the past. Already on the Superbooth I got the hint that a 909 clone is in the making which also contains many new features and improvements (individual outputs, USB, transient designer…) compared to the original
