The Boring TR-909 vs RD-9 Comparison Video We Didn't Need to Have!

video upload by Honeysmack

"It's the video we didn't need to have, but here it is — a very rough comparison of the TR-909 and RD-9 performing the same pattern over and over again, be warned its rather boring. This is not an attempt to go through the detailed features of each, just a quick 1:1 comparison for all those who have been asking for it. Signal path is a mono out of each drum machine into an old Mackie 8 Bus mixer, recorded dry.

These days it seems there are more 909 experts than actual 909s, with opinions divided over what is an authentic 909 sound.... boring and ahem...why does it matter, why is it a competition?! These experts tend to overlook the sequencer, that is an essential quality of any hardware drum machine! For the rest of us, the RD-9 is awesome and I think it does a great job of emulating the original TR-909 with some clever new additions, but shhhhhhh no one will ever know the difference, except for maybe you know who (they'll be easy to spot in the comments section below). 😂 ðŸĪĢ

Sorry for the blurred parts of the video, there were some experts that could not show their faces because they felt the shame of not actually owning a 909. Now the cat is out of the bag!! It's okay they have gone back to the safety of their screens to assert their misinformed opinion onto others. Here's wishing them well, I worry sometimes... 🙃 😘

For those experts who are angry, unsatisfied or take issue with this video, please call into your nearest Internet Cafe as you might be eligible for a refund for watching this video and please accept my insincere apology. ðŸĪĄ ðŸĪŠ 😜

Disclaimer: I was a beta-tester on the Behringer RD-9 and I do not work for Behringer, nor do they have any input into the making of this video.

Thanks for watching 😀
