200+ Free Roland TR-909 Samples

The TR-909 Rhythm Composer (invented by Tadao Kikumoto) is without any doubt one of the most iconic drum machines ever made. It was first manufactured in 1983 by Roland and had along with the TB-303 synth a huge impact on the development of genres, such as house, acid house or techno.

Whereas its predecessor, the Roland TR-808 is rather known for a clean sound and a long sub bass, the 909 comes with a punchy and saturated drum sound.

The drum machine is most famous for its dirty kick drum and open hat which is usually placed between the kick hits. Furthermore, the 909 is known for a shuffle mode, which moves notes slightly off-grid, resulting in a certain “groove”. This groove can additionally be adjusted using the “flam” and “accent” features.

Considering that the 909 was a milestone in the history of dance music (although it financially flopped) it’s clear that you can find its sounds in countless records.

From today’s perspective the 909 sound is rather old school, so these free 909 samples are adapted to the requirements of current productions using a variety of modern processing tools.

Also includes some rather lo-fi or old sounding samples, some of which are strongly saturated, so you can use the kit for a variety of different styles.

There are also 20 drum loops, that are stemmed out in different groups resulting in a total of 100 TR-909 loops.
