Monade Sounds has announced the release of Pure909, a sample-based emulation of the legendary Roland TR-909 drum machine by Roland.

The 909 is an analog & partially sample based drum machine released in 1984 that was used by artists from different genres such as Aphex Twin, Boys Noize, Kanye West and Radiohead!

At its core, Pure909 use a pristine set of TR-909 samples recorded at 24 bit, 44.1 khz (DVD audio quality). The samples have been compressed to FLAC and embedded in a VST/AU instrument plugin. We resampled the 909 through vintage samplers, computers and machines. Among them the Akai MPC60, an old PC computer, the NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) & Sega Master System soundchips, various tube amplifiers and more!
