HA! can't find something Roland never made, can ya?

EDIT: I wonder why they never used the number 404 anyway? the low numbers are synths but there's no 404, is there? It goes SH101, MC202, TB303 and then isn't it straight to TR606 and straight up to 909 including the latin 727 verion of the 707?

Roland are a Japanese company - the Japanese avoid 4s

Roland are a Japanese company - the Japanese don't like the number four.

Yeah 9 is pain and suffering which isn't so unpopular

per haps 909 refers to the pain and suffering caused by the lousy sampled hihats

Ha! I have often wished the closed an open hats on a 909 didn't share the same level knob and output socket... so much taming and sweetening to be done!.... but then there's Jeff Mills, doing all this with just a lousy Hosa cable plugged into the stereo output...

GEAR:
  • Roland TR-808 Rhythm Composer
  • Roland TR-909 Rhythm Composer

yeah but.... but.... I swear that all that guy did was finger drum on the 909 for the last 30 years!

...but he is THE 909 fingerer. :)

When humans in the distant future search the global knowledge base for "909" (meaning they just think the phrase "909" then blink twice, I guess?) a holographic representation of Jeff Mills will appear in their retinas to give them a guided demo of what this metal box of buttons and wires could do.

no no, I meant ALL HE DID WAY FINGER DRU ON THE 909, like the amount of dedication to get that good at it is compeltely awe inspiring and this is from a guy who devoted 30 years to guitar.

I have noticed this... I feel like 2018 was last time I was able to put it on in the background while I work... but, it's kinda worth paying for and/or owning too.

the last time I remember it being on netflix was right after my son was born so like 2014.... but it probably was on other streaming services and I just was too distracted by a screaming wife and baby

Wow. Raising a 6 y/o solo in the middle of a pandemic... you should have your name on a plaque somewhere when this is all over. Is your son receptive at all to music instruction at this age? My nephew just turned 3, and his parents are using his basement play zone to house a hand me down hammond, accordion, and violin... neither of them play anything, but his uncle would put in the work if he ever takes an interest.

(and apologies to @mylittleeye for my role in this OT/hijack... there are no backchannels/DMs here... so this is kinda how it goes...)
