That's pretty close in price to another drum machine. So when are they going to release their version of the Barturia Rumloot Impact?

If Behringer really wanted to be cool they'd do an SDS5 in a box with a nice sequencer.

300 is ridiculously cheap. I wonder it will still work after 3 years...
I would happily pay 100 more for rigid plastic buttons but this is selling to a market who have never experienced the difference.

Someone mentioned it can do some parameter automation?

I came here to get a break from the drama at GS...

Some here seem to be missing the point with comments like "with the TR-8s you get a 909, 808, 707...". Maybe the TR-8s does it for some but it doesn't for those who, with the TR-8s now available, are interested in this thread. And these are the people who this thread is for. If you use a TR-8s and feel it has the classics covered or you want more modern digital gear, then why is this thread of interest?

I'm interested in the Behringer 909 and 808 because I don't want to shell out $8000 for two vintage drum machines. For me, it doesn't need to sound EXACTLY like their counterparts. They just have to sound good, especially the cymbals on both machines.

However I would shell out $8,000 for a real 909 and 808 tomorrow if these weren't in development, so these will affect the vintage used market because customers, like me, are out.

Also IMO Roland had ample opportunity to deliver and fell short, leaving a vacuum. Therefore I welcome Behringer doing what Roland should have done already.

The prototype looks like a vst from 2003. :hihi:
Will it sound like that too?

There are photos of more recent prototypes but yeah it will sound "exactly" like a VST emulation which sounds "exactly" like a 909.

I'm so excited for the impending flood of "DAWless techno jam" videos on Youtube featuring this, and a Roland boutique or a Volca, with perfect recreations of every Jeff Mills track ever.
The original music that will come out of this is going to change the world! It will be just like the early 90s!

Sold all my eurocrack. Bought my dream guitar & bass, 2 Neurons, 2 Model D, 1 Analogue Solutions Fusebox, 2 Analogue Solutions Generators, a new IMac dedicated to music, a drum kit for my son & have enough left to take my family on a holiday overseas next year. Looking forward to adding two of these and whatever else Behringer puts out.

I love early 90’s techno, I have no delusions of being an original sound designer or anything ground jamming with mates so this affordable gear is perfect.

And if I was going to be an ethical consumer l wouldn’t be using Apple, Samsung, wearing any clothes or shoes nor driving a car or riding a bike/scooter of any kind. Get over yourselves and have fun.

No news on this? Especially with the recent 303/808 news on roland's patents.

Really want that 909 sound, and have a few modules lined up, but I'd rather keep it out of the rack.

I hope they'll make loading samples ability.
Without that 909 shall be boring except that 5 real analog sounds.

There are plenty of other drum machines with sampling (TR8S, MPCs, Elektron stuff, Tanzbar2, .....)

A proper 909 box, correctly used doesn't need sampling features, it stand on its own. Like it has done for the last 40 years of electronic music history.

Exactly. It's such a Gearslutz thing to ask for. Along with a VST editor and pattern changing vis MIDI.

The RD909 looks just as cramped as the tr09 even though it's like 6 times bigger. They really messed up the design. Should have moved the accent knob to give more space. The extra section with filter takes up too much room and is spaced out then they crammed everything else. It works on the 808 but the 909 has more knobs next to each other and they tried to cram it in the same style and keep the same filter/transient shaper layout. it just doesn't work

look at how this guy on their IG story resorted to tweaking knobs (click through to see clip):
