Is Roland Set To Re Release The TR-909?

A celebration of the studio favorite Roland TR-909 is scheduled to go down next month.

Promising the offer of “new and inspiring electronic instruments,” Roland is set to release a slew of new instruments with rumors of a possible 909 re release coming some 33 years after its original production. In fact, the techno favorite TR-909 technically hasn’t been on the market since 1985.

(Not so) Arguably one of the industry’s seminal instruments, the TR-909 can fetch high prices via the second hand market, and with Roland actively bringing many of its classics back in the form of a “boutique line,” it seems only right they do so with the 909.

All will occur via live streams for a number of categories, including synths, DJ gear and keyboards on September 9. See What Roland had to say in their announcement video below
