Pinki just hit the start button and is seemingly impressed by the outcome 😁

The TR-909 was a commercial failure compared to its predecessor, the TR-808, but it has since become a prized instrument and commands rather high prices. Many friends even celebrate “909 Day” on the 9th of September. Roland has more recently introduced a TR-09 as part of its Boutique series.

via this auction

“Up for grabs is a super ultra rare bend by the infamous Tablebeast.

To my knowledge he only did twp bends on this particular Casio model and the other keyboard went to Trent Reznor’s studio during the With Teeth sessions, or at least that is the story Jesse Savage told me. He sent this to me as part reparations for a custom amp project that went seriously wrong (ie never delivered).

Own one of these rare gems, its got glitch soul for days, nothing like it.”

Sadly, the auction is long over. But many other opportunities for glitchiness await…
