TR-909 Attack Modification?

Ho fellow Gearslutz,

my 909 has for my taste way to much "click" transient. Even in the minimal attack-setting.

Is there a modification so i could turn the initial-attack-click even more down, as the regular minimal attack-setting would allow?

Yo! What revision is your 909 as there are two different kick drums - the softer early ones and the harder later ones

Post your serial number and it will identify the revision!

What if you could record a kick drum and edit it to taste in a computer? A 'sample' if you will...

Yo! It is 404xxx. So it is sort of newer-ish.

But i dont mean the envelope of the kick, i mean this whitenoise?-"TACK"-transient.

Same as mine in that case - can you post a sample of what you mean?

With tuning all the way down, mines is very soft

7 Bars:

1. Kick with 0% Attack and half Velocitiy
2. Kick with 50% Attack and half Velocitiy
3. Kick with 100% Attack and half Velocitiy
4. Kick with 0% Attack and full Velocitiy
5. Kick with 50% Attack and full Velocitiy
6. Kick with 100% Attack and full Velocitiy
7. Kick with 100% Attack and full Velocitiy + Total Accent 100%

I would love to have the attack like the first kick, but with full velocity.
Downside from the half velocity kick is the lower volume. I would have to turn it louder in the sum, and would get more noise of the 909.

I did edit the sound sample in the way that the transient stays at like the loudest. In the result the mainbody of the kick gets of course quieter.

That 909 sucks bro. There is no fix for that issue. I'll help you de-clutter your studio and come and take it for recycling, free of charge.
