OVERVIEW

Exact emulation of the original TR909 groove box.

Drumazon synthesis emulates all the sounds of the original TR909. All the instruments are synthesized in exactly the same way as the original, and all of the nuances and details of the original are captured perfectly. In addition, all Drumazon instruments have enhanced controls. This extra functionality allows the user to adjust the sounds further than on the original unit, which opens up a whole new world of sound creation.

Outputs
Drumazon has a flexible output configuration. Every instrument's audio signal can be routed to any of the 11 outputs. This allows users to further shape sounds individually or in groups via their favorite plug-ins. Each individual output can be set to mono or stereo, and every instrument also has a Mute and Solo button. Mute will not just silence the sound; it will stop the sound being triggered. Solo will stop all other instruments from being triggered and only allow the selected sound(s) to play.

Control
Drumazon also has extensive MIDI control where MIDI notes can be used to trigger each individual sound. Alternatively, the internal sequencer can be used. This can be set to play using Drumazon's internal clock or set to synchronize perfectly to the host sequencer. Most of Drumazon's parameters can be automated within the host and also controlled using MIDI CC with an external controller. An easy-to-use MIDI Learn function allows reassignment of any of the parameters.

Internal Sequencer
Within Drumazon’s internal sequencer, patterns are stored in 8 banks and each bank can store up to 12 patterns. Each pattern consists of 16 steps, and each pattern location has a MIDI note number assigned to it. The patterns can be edited traditionally using the step buttons or using the tap function.

Drumazon’s internal sequencer has various modes of operation. In Chain Mode, ranges of patterns are selected from the internal banks and are played through in a circular fashion. Patterns can also be triggered freely by selecting the corresponding MIDI note (for example, from a MIDI controller keyboard), and external controllers can be used in any mode to provide full control over pattern playback.

A Randomizer function is also provided within the internal sequencer that can be used to make simple changes to a pattern or create a whole new one – an ideal feature for when your creativity needs a boost. Randomizing can be applied to specific instruments and specific steps and the frequency of occurrence can also be adjusted to give you just the right amount.

Drumazon’s files are stored in the XML format. This allows single patterns or whole banks to be exchanged between users easily. XML allows the files to be edited in a text editor, which is ideal if you want to post or share a pattern on a website - just post the text.

Presets
The settings for each instrument can be stored in it's own preset. Each instrument preset can be loaded in individually, which allows maximum flexibility when putting kits of instruments together. A dedicated Preset Manager is provided to help the user manage the sounds within their own unique library.

Note: This product is a digital download.

I can't believe you people actually thought you were getting a piece of HARDWARE for this price. Doesn't anybody bother to READ any more ? This VSTi plugin is easy to install and even easier to use...if you know what you are doing. Sounds great and is a steal at the deal price. D-16 is a great company with great service and products. I'm stunned at the comments here. To be honest I'm embarrased for you people.

Difficult to install and configure: counter-intuitive layout. It took a week to receive an empty DVD library case with no media, and only a card with registration info and download instructions. Shipped via UPSMI (UPS Mail Innovations) which is SLOWER than regular US Mail (USPS). If no physical media is shipped, then why not just email the buyer the download URL and registration code, instead of requiring them to wait a week to receive an empty box and THEN do so? I have attempted to install on PC, and am unable to find where the product installed itself, and how to get it to work inside my DAW.

    Comments about D16 Group Drumazon TR909 Emulation Software (VST/AU):

    Great software. D16 Nepheton is also spot on 808, I'd say both are even more useful than the originals (and I own an originals)

    The people complaining about the product description must be on meds. This is clearly a VST-I and it is not stand alone.

    I use Drumazon, Nepheton and the sh 101 software with Ableton Suite 9 and push; they all sound amazing and have amazing tweakability.

    Enjoy this purchase, it really is a gem.

        I use this in my Presonus Studio One Professional Digital Audio Workstation and this is great, lots of parameters you can modify and/or automate, most reviews state this is as good or better than the original hardware version, I agree.

            Comments about D16 Group Drumazon TR909 Emulation Software (VST/AU):

            Used with Ableton Live, I found it intuitive, there are videos online by d16 group to help get you up to speed, it's pretty simple.

            You have to register on d16's website in order to access the downloads for both Mac and windows, and you will also get a text file with the key on it that must be pointed to upon first launch of the program.

            Everything behaves just like the tr 909. You can trigger the sounds through any controller. I use the mpd 32, there's also a midi learn function for customizing the controls. I'm canceling my order for the tr-8, it's that good. Looking to pick up nepheton and lush very soon.

                I got this item to use with Pro tools . and it does not work with protools. I waited about 2 weeks for this order to come in. and when I got it ,it was just a card. with an activating card. after searching for a way I could use it I found I was going to have to spend more money to get it to work with pro tools. I am very unhappy with it . and I still don't have it working.

                          It is software, as clearly stated in the information, and a good piece of software it is. I bought this on a SDotD, and love it. Works well in Reaper (and in PT10 using reaper as a rewire host) on a PC (Win7/64). D16 Group make some nice plugins. I would buy it again.

                          I rarely review things as I am not very good at it, but felt this plugin was being maligned by a select few who didn't read the information MF provided before buying. No one was being misled--it is a VST, which opens inside a recording program.

                                This product cannot be used alone. It must be plugged into a virtual studio, which there are several that are free to use. You must learn how to use the virtual studio in order to plug the product in and use it. 16 Group was very helpful and patient in several emails to get it going, since I'm a noob at all this. I wish MF would have clearly stated in the product description, that all this is needed to run the product. If they had, I would not have purchased it.
