About the TR-909 Rhythm Composer
The Roland TR-909 Rhythm Composer is a classic drum machine hybrid that integrated analog and sample-base sounds. Introduced by Roland in 1984, the TR-909 was the brainchild of Tadao Kikumoto, the engineer who also developed the Roland TB-303. The TR-909 was the first MIDI-equipped drum machine, and its features included a 16-step step sequencer to drive a drum kit aimed for realism and cost-effectiveness. It is fully programmable, and like its predecessor, the TR-808, it can store entire songs with multiple sections, as opposed to simply storing patterns. However, the TR-909′s true legacy comes from its part in the creation of house and techno music.
