RD-9 Page

With the RD-9 Rhythm Designer, Behringer brings the sounds of the most famous drum machine of all time, the Roland TR-909, into the present! Hardly any other drum machine has shaped the development of electronic music as much as Roland's TR-909. When the 909 was born in 1984, its time simply hadn't come yet. Only with the Acid House wave, which started a few years later and thus also after the end of production, this drum machine should experience its revival, which continues until today.

Cult drums for eternity

The massive and assertive sound of the 909 instruments has always been the distinguishing feature, especially the voluminous bass drum, which has been immortalized on countless records. Behringer has taken special care to ensure that all sounds are accurately reproduced. As a "bonus", the RD-9 now has three additional parameters: Pitch and Pitch Intensity have been added to the bass drum, allowing for more variations and making it suitable for slightly harder sounds. The hihats have been given a common tuning control. In total there are 11 instruments, which are adjustable in volume and other parameters like eg. Tuning or Decay are adjustable. If you want to have it really classic, you can program the RD-9 in Authentic-Mode, here the three new parameters in the sound generation and the two analog effects are bypassed. The full package is then available in Enhanced Mode.

Sequencer

The sequencer has 256 patterns for your own beats, which can be up to 64 steps long. Even odd steps can be programmed individually for each track. The groove parameters Shuffle and Flam, which are indispensable for Chicago Sound and House, have also been integrated. Absolutely performance-oriented is the trigger function, which repeats a pre-selectable range (1, 2, 4, 8 steps) of sequencer steps in Step Repeat Mode until the key is released. Alternatively, there is Note Repeat, which triggers the selected instrument in four speed levels; perfect for spontaneously bringing variety into the pattern!

Analog Effects

The main output has two special features: on the one hand there is a switchable lowpass/highpass filter with manually adjustable cutoff and resonance, on the other hand the Wave Designer; a compressor-like effect that processes the transient and decay times. Depending on the setting, the signal becomes pumpy, spongy or slightly choppy.
