Roland TR-909
« on: March 04, 2009, 07:57:31 am »
The Roland TR-909 is a legendary sampler and sequenzer from the 80s. And I have read, that Music 2000 contains the original samples of it. The legendary techno sample machine costs 1500-2000 € on the second hand market. And a lot of sounds I have heard are really the same. If it is true, that this is the same, we can say we are good by collecting our money with Music 2000.

Yeah, you're right. And actually, I find myself spending an inorbinate amount of time editing samples to sound like analogue synths.

I've been searching for a cheap keyboard, no luck so far but my melodies will be greater when I find one.

Also there are 606 and 808 sounds on here as well. One of the 808 claps is spot on(il check back later with a sample name) and 'formant' sounds like a meatier 808 kick but has a long bass tail which can cause probs getting a bassline to sit nice over it.

The 'wanna dance' sample is a 909 sound. Very 80's!

I'd rather be a nobody, than a somebody who 'nearly' made it.
