Then it got a little out of hand and it got really complicated with many distortions and envelopes and whatnot and i almost lost my mind. Came to my senses again and posted what i had. Still no good. :(

The problem i had was mostly with the dynamics of the beginning. It seems to pop in a way i can't achieve in synthesis, no matter what.
Right exactly. That initial pop is really really hard. Maybe someone can figure out how to even get something to sound like that?

I'm kinda thinking they layer something over it to get it to hit that hard.

Quoting myself, especially because the second article describes exactly how the 808/909 snares were made and I think it answers a lot of the questions people are asking...

Okay thanks again. I'll re-read. Kinda just skimmed it before.

That's only the schematic look. Getting this to actually sound like a 909 is still a lot of work.

Yes, although the text fills in quite a few details, such as frequencies and such. Also check this one, as it talks about "Bridged T" oscillators, which can be simulated by "kicking" a resonant filter with a click of some kind -- SYNTH SECRETS

I'm putting this together currently on my PC3, will post if/when I've got the goods. I did this once before, but can't find my original patch, so I'm going back through and putting it together again using the "Bridged T" approach.

I suspect this is a digital software drum synth. I'm looking for something for myself, and Sonic Charge Microtonic is looking pretty good ...

Yup. I used to mess with that. Pretty cool. Lots of possibilities. The thing I was missing was, theres a type of 909 snare that sounds more like a tom that I found.

Pretty much a 909 snare, a really abrasive sounding transient that I distorted and filtered to place at the beginning, and white noise. Then compressed and limited.

They are more or less similar
