Re-creating the Roland TR909 for iPad

June 30, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized 

nineOnine is intended to emulate not only the sound of the classic TR-909, but also the logic of programming and saving rhythm patterns.”The TR-909 is an awesome analog drum machine! THE standard House and Techno beatbox. Sounds include kick, snare, hand clap, open and closed hi hats, low mid and hi toms, rim shot, ride and crash cymbals. Sounds are tweakable – attack, tone, tuning, decay, snap and accent. This machine does not sound like true acoustic drums, and we don’t want it to. It has a unique and very loveable analog sound that’s all its own!” And now it is here for the iPad:

Features:

  • 16 step drum sequencer
  • 10 user defined presets
  • 9 drum instruments
  • 8 drum patterns (4 x 2 banks)
  • 4 preset tracks
  • Knob zoom for easier handling
  • Effects rack (Reverb, Delay, BitCrush and Pan)
  • Record and export loops in 16bit/44.1kHz stereo WAV format

However, nineOnine needs some additional features in order to become a no-brainer. MIDI features are missing in action and “Track Play is preset and can not be user defined.”

Developer Mirko Trkulja promises some significant enhancements with the next update, though, including:

  • Knob automation
  • Wi-Fi MIDI sync
  • Full sound synthesis
  • Step or Tap pattern write mode
  • More patterns and presets
  • User defined Track Play
