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
Price or availability, there are no information available, only the info that they tries to bring out both drum machines for under $400/$500 USD on the market.
