Becuase the truth is it has, not sure which other machine in EDM has dominated as much as the Roland 909...Could be wrong..
I would say the TB 303 Comes close maybe the 808 a little more with hip hop I would say.
you find all kinf of drummachines in techno especially in early techno... later it gets more uniform in the sounds and many moved away fromthe roland drum machines to seperate from the shitstormthe copycats had created. when the 909 was finaly out of fashion and the copycats had discovered the synth drums and elektrons some got rolands back in the boot.. but up to now the prices are up again....


beside that the 909 is far from a simple drum machine.. has your drum machine flams ?

Yes I know what you mean. Yes my 909 has flam

It also has accented highhats
Has level controls and tuning and decay......
Finally I think it is analog.
Ha ha but seriously the machine has been designed to be musical and this is why i cannot understand why people still want to sample it, you are loosing the music when you sample it people.
Love my 909.

Really? Never heard of Robert Hood, Jeff Mills, Basic Channel, Underground Resistance etc? They're pretty much the most famous names in techno.

It takes a bit of processing and its a lot more suited to house and electro than straight up techno but here's a bit of Tempest in techno.

Still in love with Hertzblut (Bodzin) and probably always will be.
Extrawelt, Cooper, Romboy, Huntemann, Dubfire, Matador, Ambivalent, Microtrauma....as well.

Had a really nice live gig before Marc Romboy this week-end

I'm really an ITB producer. I like to summ OTB with my neve 8816.

So where's the "new" techno in this thread? Personally I prefer darker flavours, more industrial.

I'll be posting some new techno when I wake up this evening. I didn't even realise there was a new techno thread! The UK is doing something a bit different at the moment. I'll show later!

what about outboard processing & mixing techniques?

i actually find the 909 a little hard to mix.. the BD just eats up all the low/mid as do the toms.. also never managed to get that perfect rob hood kick, subtle yet present.. i'm assuming tape is/was involved. i also need to step up my compression game as it's all ITB (waves plugs) i know elysia have a great rep..anything else?

Priceless track (and EP) by IA Bericochea:


Love this classic, To make something like that in 1994... Class. Very hypnotic, and really messes with your head:


Love this one by Speedy J as well:

This is such an amazing banger... It works always, sounds so bombastic, @ 120 or 135 bpm, doesn't matter. Always moves a crowd. And you can loop it for like 15 minutes behind other tracks and it stays.... Awesome.

Brood Audio and Sleaze put out some great stuff at the moment!

If techno is "about the future" then isn't there an implied responsibility for that future? If you are still buying vinyl records then you are being socially irresponsible by ignoring techno(logy) and consuming a petroleum by product. After all records are made of plastic and plastic is made from oil...

...then again maybe it's just music to dance the nite away, while eating pills in a grimy warehouse.

Or maybe it's about stacking up more and more gear.

... I dont know anymore...

606/707/808 are super easy for me... 909 not so much, the massive kick seems to swallow and clash any kind of bass line i apply (i'm not a great mixing engineer btw)

hey audio.. i often appreciate your contributions around here but it is a little rebarbative to hear you complain/berate: people using presets, people ITB, people using clones. fwiw i actually agree with your opinions but

can't we move on to some more constructive business?

I stopped listening to techno in 1991 or so...i got into it through eurobreat and newbeat in the mid eighties, leading me to the sheffield stuff and other brit late eighties, early nineties techno...dont know who to start with now as its been so long, plus genres were kind of sparse on the ground then...nowadays wtf??

Just finished this as an old school kinda thing...but i want to get a more modern sound, or at least more current than 1990

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3146805/The%...20Solitary.mp3

Im using
Machinedrum
Maschine
R8M (808, 909)
Virus TI
Prophet 08
Moog SP
Blofeld
JV 1080 (vintage synth, techno, dance)
Komplete Ultimate

Ill check out some of the stuff in this thread but any other current suggestions would be appreciated

i find distressors are very well suited for techno,punchy in your face sound ,it may not be as clean and hifi compared to elysia comps ,but i like the grit.
