Perhaps the most versatile and influential of the drum machines that revolutionized music in the 1980′s, the Roland TR-909 combined synthetically generated analog sounds with digital samples and an intuitive programming interface. Rows of knobs provide ample tweaking opportunities allowing for a wide range of expression in the drum sounds – none of which approach the sound of acoustic drums but provide ample drive for electronic dance music.
