It’s ‘909 Day’, which has become a celebration of all things TR-909 ever since Roland introduced the TR-09 on this day in 2016. This year, you can grab D16 Group Drumazon, one of the most accurate software-based 909 emulations, for under 30 quid! But hurry up: This deal expires tomorrow!
D16 Group Drumazon
This year’s 909 Day was rumored to bring the release of the Behringer RD-9, or maybe the other forthcoming hardware clone, DIN Sync’s RE-909. So far, none of this has materialized. But you can still get your 909 fix today! D16 Group is offering a sweet deal on the Drumazon software emulation.
Drumazon emulates all sounds of the famous Roland TR-909 drum machine. The developer says that each module is coded to reproduce all the nuances of the original. As a bonus, they’ve added some additional controls, which open up new tweaking possibilities. Most of the parameters can be automated and controlled via MIDI.
Drumazon’s internal step sequencer stores up to 96 patterns (8 banks with 12 patterns each). You can trigger patterns over MIDI, which is an interesting option for performances. There’s also a versatile randomize function to keep you inspired. Randomization can be applied to whole patterns, specific instruments and even specific steps, with adjustable intensity. That’s a great way to come up with new and inspiring patterns.
Price and compatibility
D16 Group Drumazon is now on sale at Thomann.de* for just GBP 26. That’s about 70% off the regular price. But you should be quick: This 909 Day offer expires tomorrow (September 10, 2020).
The plug-in runs on Windows 7 or higher and macOS 10.7 to 10.14 in VST and AU formats (32/64 bit).
