A projected price and release date for Behringer's TR-909 clone has been revealed

Behringer has unveiled details of its upcoming TR-909 drum machine clone.

In a post on the Gearslutz forum, company founder Uli Behringer revealed that the drum machine, which the company is calling the RD-909, will retail at $299 (around £234). It will go on sale in early 2019.

The company has replicated a number of features of the TR-909 for the drum machine, though their version comes with some differences. These include an analogue filter and pitch control on the kicks and hi-hats.

The RD-909 is one of a number of replica synths and drum machines in production by Behringer. Last month, they unveiled an update on Sequential Circuits' Pro One synth, while they also produced their own take on the Roland TR-808, though did not put it into wide production.
