Indeed the 309 is one of Quasimidis best inventions, they earned a lot of critics because of their lower sound quality and really bad reso filter of the Raven and Quasar, that was apparently the right motivation to create the 309. Roughest, strongest Reso/CutOff Filter ever heard so far by quasimidi. Real Boosting Bass, but they never managed to create good Hall FXs, the chorus of the 309 is 10times more present then in The Raven, but the delays never reached a useful level. Despite these facts the Drum Sounds and Synthbasses/Leads are great and the 309 is a peak product of Quasimidi. Finally all damaged Raven/Quasar users got the right aggression and strength they needed for their sound productions. Finally the 909 Hihats were nearly perfect unlike the Raven. 309 has one of the best sounding 909 Hats in my opinion. The TriSaw was always one of my favorites, also the tb_303 emulation on lower vcf level. The Bass Booster and the two EQs were so necessary and always extremely useful.

I'm an analog purist (former tr/tb owner) but this machine can't be beat for versatility and cost(mine was $200) It sounds great. compare to my 808 it doesn't quite cut it for warmth and quirkyness. but a huge range of sounds and tweakability make it a bargain, It's perfect for begginers or those on a budget. 4 out of 5. Disco isn't dead, they just call it house music noy... and it still sucks!

i've owned a 309 for years and it's in my book as one of the greater drum machines. no doubt the sounds are crazy and totaly tweekable. some say it starting to sound dated, try tweeking the sounds its nutty, you can make just about any genre of music out there. to buy the instruments this emulates would cost thousands and would be impossible to use all at once. want heavy sounds process it with an analog filter or tube pre or both this thing will hit, hits without but what the heck. maybe the xbase or machinedrum top this but not by much. this is one dedicated drum machine. my only gripes are the old OS is a lil shaky in a midi master/slave set up, the preset patterns are almost all 4/4 (its a raveolution!) other than that rock on!

damn! i have only the first OS on the machine and no upgrades, but this drum machine is SWEET!!! you have so much control over the sounds and there are a lot of sounds! even the bass synth (which i wasn't expecting much out of) ROCKS! the programming came rather quickly (one long night) i think 309's are very under rated. if you want to make dance music (any genre) with quality sounds the 309 is the drum for you! Plus we all know the name RAVE-O-LUTION only gets better with time!

This unit is fantastic! I just love the ability to change every sound to the max! The only bad thing with it is that when you start to play with it it is impossible to stop ;)

And I really love all the knobs (you cant get enough knobs you know ;) ) Too bad that Quasimidi dosn´t exist any more.. They really made some good stuff..
