Ladies and samplemen, HERE IT IS!
The next chapter in our series of premium specialty libraries: RAW SERIES VOL.2: JMX 09!
After the warm reception of our first installment in the analog percussion world (the acclaimed RAW Series Vol.1) we decided to make a library built on the same honorable principles -realism, dynamics and usability- but with a more agressive and punchy sound that complemented the organic and creamy nature of the previous collection. Of all the drum machines in our arsenal we felt that the 09 was the box that best represented this idea, and thus our next victim was chosen!
The XBase09 is a 909 inspired drum machine with a twist. The great thing about it it's that, although you can use it to emulate a convincing 909, it can also go WAY beyond it's limits. The bass drum and snare circuits have much wider range and the sound is a bit more modern and over-the-top. It's like a 909 on steroids! This is specially nice since you can end up with something that sounds “familiar” yet not dated like the overused original 909. A clever way of sounding different.
