Well, its here: a complete Bassadelic-rinsedown of the classic 909 drum machine. This package gives you 170 Tr-909 drum samples (as well as 30 funky snares) that are ready for your mixes. Not just choppy, ear-pinching cymbal drums and snares without reverb, no! You can add what affects you need to on top of these sounds, but they have already been manipulated, lightly or moderately saturated in many cases, many have been lightly amped, reverb added, and limited – these 170 samples have been affected with the (MODERN) electronic musician in mind… It is easier to use these 909 samples in your mixes than it would be to use the actual machine.

OH SNIPPITY SNAP, THIS WHOLE THING IS 5 BUCKS!
This is a comprehensive package of slightly processed Roland TR-909 drum machine one-shot samples. These samples have received the Bassadelic rinsedown, which means they have been touched up and manipulated to make them better fit for beat-making and electronic music production.
I did this because although I enjoy the sound of the raw 909 drums, I find that I almost always needed to process the samples when using them digitally, in a song or a rhythm. So, I decided to process all the 909 drums individually and add slight touch-ups, including slight amplification, mild saturation, reverb, limiting, and a number of other subtle effects that help these drums get ready for a new beat, but not mastered or overly-processed to the point where they are unrecognizable as what people expect from that incredible 909 drum box sound!
I personally think the best processing was done with the cymbals; I was able to smooth them out a little and give them a very nice, lush reverb quality, but still kept them as punchy as they needed to be. Also, the handclaps were effected, noticeably more than some of the other samples. As well, claps are one of my favorite samples to work with, so I went to town manipulating them in different variations, and I added a few of these ‘extra’ claps in a marked folder in addition to the two primary clap samples found in the TR909 drum machine.
So, I hope these samples are of some benefit to you. I plan to release mor drum kits and sample packs, I’m very interested in the older “retro” drum sounds, especially. I’m a big fan of the disco-ish Roland TR-66, a precursor to the TR-909, so stay tuned for that, which should be coming up in the months ahead!
Also, I’d like to point out that I love taking requests for samples and sample packs, so if you have an idea, let me know!
Special thanks goes to Ambrose Holiday, who was kind enough to work on the
graphic design for the cover of this sample pack. He’s a super talented and
innovative designer, and we’re very lucky to be able to work with him and
showcase his talents on one of our products! Thanks again, Ambrose!
You can use these samples in any way you choose, commercially or privately, and the only thing you can NOT do is resell this package or rename it and sell it later. But other than these obvious exceptions, you can do pretty much whatever you wish! Have fun! Make some real dope tunes with these fun
