Here for the gear
 

777-9311 by Morris Day & The Time - Drums

Ive always thought this was a drummer but a musician friend of mine told me the drum sequence was done on a drum machine. Any truth in this and which drum machine was it?.

Thanks,

You may enjoy this clip and I believe he states the original recording was a drum machine.

Very clever programming/mutes after the breakdown.

BTW, song 1 side B of the album has a GREAT roomy live drum sound and performance:

Yes, and programmed/produced by Prince. In a Bass Player interview he stated that this song and Let's work have some of his best bass-work.

I recall reading the hi-hats were done separately.
