Releasing a first glimpse of the clone via their Facebook page, by all accounts, the Behringer RD-909 looks like a faithful reproduction of the legendary Roland drum machine, with the exception of plastic buttons replacing the TR-909’s original mechanical keys. There’s also the addition of the Wave Designer feature and Analogue Filter found on their RD-808 – another impressive clone of another famed Roland drum machine – and an extremely notable absence of the TR-909’s distinctive splash of orange, with Behringer opting for a monochrome finish for the new machine.

Although Behringer are yet to announce any official specifications or release details, we already can’t wait to get our hands on one of these bad boys. Stay tuned to Mixdown for further updates.
