I need a good compression for a TR-909. For good real sound.
(High Attack and small Relase?) Who can tell me an setting?

You mean a real TR??? or Drumazon.

If you mean D16s Killer TR clone... try this one:
Density mkII

If you mean hardware, you can overdrive and eq with your mixing console before recording for a nice indirect compression. Or use any compressor. The trick is to use a long attack and a small release with moderat threshold levels. In that way I have good experiences with my SSL compressor clone, my Art TCS compressor or a FMR compressor. I think FMR is also a good low budget tip. :)
