Smaller 909 manual : Snare drum

Snare

The 909 snare drum has two parts: A tone that simulates the vibration of the drum skin, and noise that simulates the sound of the metal wires.

In this library, the tone and noise are separate samples. This makes it possible to create the entire range of 909 snare drum sounds with much fewer samples.
