SampleScience has announced the release a plugin designed to play the TR-909 drum sounds chromatically. Always in key, with 909 Lab you can easily make sure your 909 drums are in key with the rest of your track.

Each tonal sound of the 909 has been tuned to perfection so you can play your favorite 909 sounds in key with your track using your piano roll! You can easily create punchy 909 basslines with it. Unlike the original machine, you have full control of each drum sound: easily shape and modify their tonal quality with the easy-to-use interface. Just select the sound you want, shape it and you’re set!

The 909 has been used by famous musicians like Jean-Michel Jarre, Aphex Twin, BT, Orbital, Air, Astral Projection, and the Chemical Brothers.

909 Lab features

  • All the 11 original sounds of the 909.
  • Tonal drum sounds key mapped to piano roll.
  • Tonal shaper.
  • Amp floor and ceiling controls.
  • Saturation.
  • Reverb (for some of the sounds).

The plugin is available in VST and AU formats for Windows and Mac (not compatible with Catalina), priced $30 USD.
