News Roland TB-3

Analog Modeling Synth from Roland belonging to the AIRA series

Another AIRA component announced by Roland is the TB-3, which emulates the vaunted TB-303 bass synth.

Like the other components in the AIRA series, the TB-3 uses Roland’s new Analog Circuit Behavior (ACB) modeling technology, to recreate the sounds of the the TB-303, and Roland has also duplicated the functionality of that instrument, with a lot of digital-era touches such as the Scatter feature, which allows for slicing, reverse, gating, and more, making possible the easy creation of stutter and glitch effects.

Features:

  • Modeled from a pristine TB-303 unit, the original spec sheets, and archival data
  • Roland’s ACB technology models each component and every aspect of the original TB-303 sound
  • Faithful recreation of the original saw and square oscillator waveforms
  • Attack, slide, tie, and other elements that characterize the TB-303 have been fully reproduced, including how they interact with each other
  • Authentic filter behavior with smooth response and classic sound
  • Pressure-sensitive touch pad
  • 134 captivating sounds, including the original TB-303 tones and new four-oscillator, effects-processed basses, leads, and sound effects
  • Dedicated Tempo control with shuffle and tap tempo functions
  • Control built-in effects with smooth, responsive knobs
  • 7-segment, 3-character LED display
  • Seamless switching between pattern creation and performance/
  • 16-step indicator lights to aid in pattern creation
  • Pattern support for up to 32 steps
  • Easy access to shuffle control for bass lines that groove.
  • Enter steps manually or record in real time on the touch pad
  • Change step count during playback to alter the length of phrases
  • Random pattern generation and pattern modification
  • Pattern copy function

The TB-3 is expected to ship in March of this year. Definitive pricing hasn’t been announced, but early indications are that it will have a street price of around $299. For more information, visit RolandUS.com.
