Behringer drops the RD-909 drum machine at Knobcon 2018

One month on from Behringer’s limelight-grabbing video showcasing the new RD-808 on #808Day, the MusicTribe brand is, once again, diving into Roland's back catalogue with the announcement of the RD-909 at this year’s Knobcon show, which just so happened to land on 9 September.

We can assume that this 909 shares some similar new features that have been added to the RD-808, judging by the similarities in the interface design. However, we can't vouch for its sonic authenticity as this was a non-working 3D printed prototype.

There’s no word yet on release dates, or price, but we will we bring you that news as soon as it lands.

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
