    out and a clone (preque) in

    see details below before, leseffets are not editable, all the knobs are notched, the only way to remember the positions, a paper "mask" is imprimeble to take notes

    sounds: emulation of the 303, with a longer jacket, a decay finer and a more practical for large hands!

    UTILIZATION

    when we bought the RIF can not detest it out,
    Me, I've added a DELAY Digitech additional output because I want to keep hold of the tps to the way a GLIDE additional to that in

    OVERALL OPINION

    4 years of repeated use, I never get tired
    It starts with the existing pattern, then the tinker, and then launches into LIVE
    it is expensive, even used
    it goes very well with the ROLAND MC09 phraselab,

    only the least I can list: welded internal battery, it takes 5 years, when will the change be just unsolder take a AA battery holder like miniature RC, and Hopp, easy to change for other times

    I was itesté before: LAM Freebass, bofff, 5/10, the VST Phocion, 8/10, MC 303et 307 and 505, the sequencer of the FRR is easy imb seat and tuck

    - Monophonic analog synthesizer with a single oscillator (sawtooth or square)

    - A resonant low-pass filter with envelope configurable general decline

    - Functions of random remix on the fly

    - Integrated digital floor effect

    - Floor of analog distortion

    - Integrated digital floor effect

    - Floor of analog distortion

    - Comprehensive connectivity (CV out / in, midi in / out / thru, DIN Sync, hand out audio (mono) and headphone jack.

    This synthesizer is what is most basic, its explicit aim to faithfully reproduce the famous Roland TB-303.

    UTILIZATION

    The configuration is all that is simpler, as long as one understands the operation of a analog subtractive synthesizer.

    The manual is complete

    The sound editing is done directly from the synthesizer knobs provided for this purpose. The knobs are small and gives a feeling of not necessarily super strong plastic, but are against well apart from each other.

    The sequencer much disappointed me, however, and contrary to the advice of many here, I find its use laborious. Some functions (remix, transposition, loop) are well thought out, but against, enter notes in the sequencer is a pain, except to love press + / - and a television monitor which will display the names of the note desired: ie A 4, E5, BD5 ... Personally, as a keyboard player confirmed, I much prefer the visual of the small keyboard of the TB-303. There are some applications of TB-303 on the iPhone that had the intelligence to provide excellent innovation in the sequencer 303, it is not the case here. And beyond the esoteric to the round shape of the sequencer praised by team Futureretro, the entry notes is not revolutionary and is a pain. It's just so laborious, that I made up my studio sequences in the mouse Ablteton Live and I convey to the Revolution by a MIDI cable. It loses the Remix feature which is actually a simple alteration of rhythmic patterns, very similar to faonctions "alter pattern" of many software.


    SOUNDS

    - Do not expect miracles with this synth ds super basic. Its purpose is to faithfully reproduce the sound of a TB-303 and this year he succeeded quite well (though I never had a real TB-303 in my hands). Many will tell you that no, it does not do exactly this and many answer that in any case all TB-303 does not sound the same. Personally, not particularly loving fetishist and live with my time, I would say to him who hesitates, that the Revolution actually sounds "analog" and very TB-303. This instrument is very good at arpeggios produce "acid" in the manner of a 303.

    - The on-board digital effects are good bills and should perfectly suitable for use "live". In the studio, I prefer other effects plug-ins.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for over a year. I wanted a clone of TB-303 hardware and the same is very well made, solid and well built. The sound is in my ears that a TB-303, although many will tell you "no."

    Well, then, it is true that this product is a bit expensive, in the sense that some plug-ins faithfully reproduce the sound of the TB-303 for a fraction of a revolution. Besides, I do not think I remake that choice at that price. in the sense that the sequencer does not please me at all, and I find that the gain for my music was not as important as expected for the price of hardware as high.

    It is therefore a tool for hyper specialist. If you are looking for a machine hardware clone of a TB-303, I think this election is to be considered. The Revolution is perfect for performance "live" where you have other analog synths, drum machines or old, the Revolution with all the connections needed to communicate with them (output MIDI to CV conversion with CV, Synchro DIN).

    on the other hand, if not "only" to the studio and record the lines of 303, turn to the software. The gain of the hardware for a synthesizer as basic, is not really as dramatic as some would have us believe. I have several analog synthesizers, and this one is the one most faithfully reproduced in plug-in. It is also the simplest of all.

    The true fetishists will turn to a real TB-303, the musicians should consider and try the plug-in solution, and only the love of machines and other live performers should consider this purchase actually quite expensive. Keep in mind that for the same price you can afford a synthesizer SEM pro tomoberheim much higher sonic possibilities.

    Manual in simple English (43 pages)
    The sequencer is very simple (we forget that TB is a real headache)
    Reverse pattern

    SOUNDS

    You have a TB303 .... completely replaces the revolution by its grain and its parameters fully compliant!
    The sounds range from good lead acid sequence although the low soft and warm
    The expression is the same as a TB, see better because there are two parameters and more!
    THE MUST: function for each pattern or remix SONG: a killer !!!!!!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I just have (1 week)
    I like the particularity: the rebirth of his last with TB303 sequencer
    Report quality price qu'intressant when you see the TB303 to sell over 1000!!
    I try TB303
    with the experience I buy a: 2 revolutions for the price of a TB: the set of berserk!!

    UTILIZATION

    Extremely simple

    SOUNDS

    The sound is a desire to acid but still a notch below even when dune tb

    excellent remix and reverse functions

    OVERALL OPINION

    The User for two months I have nothing bad to say except that I prefer even the tb 303 qd
    the revo does not replace the grain of tb c even if a good toy good acid
    This latest issue says it is therefore more suitable for use an old analog live

    possibility for a pattern with the huge mix pottard
    English manual, but simple enough if one leans on it seriously. (I put a whole has aprem read 40 pages and yet I am an English Brel ...)

    SOUNDS

    Perfect machine for making sounds and acid trance.
    Big analog sound!
    United States Koren its not!
    she has my personal ideal
    The effects section is not bad because we can manage the importance of the effect jou for the right channel and left channel (1 to 1 for the L and R) but you can not set the effects.

    I use it for 3 months and I have good returns ...
    jadore all machines in this
    The only problem is the battery change in tps tps (50euros)
    purchase price of nine is a bit excessive for my taste but for what it costs the OCCAZ is the ball!
    I will keep no matter what!!

    Sequence very nice, great remix dual function, stress, slimming, tune, disto, loop, glide sing transpose. Effects and distortion are not configurable.

    UTILIZATION

    It is taken in hand very easily. 2 hours for me to get wasted on it and it rolls. Everything is intuitive, the interface is good, the knobs are flowing just right.
    We must forget the editing effects. There is the choice in reverb, flat, room, hall, but the delay, chorus and flanger if you do not customize (and as in our case it is impossible) it is really unnecessary.

    Shame to pass round the top. Either there must be customizable effects, or it does not take in my opinion. The economy could have been spent to implement a knob for the distortion for example.
    In any case I can understand people saying that the sequence is good and intuitive.


    SOUNDS

    It sounds super good. It's the sound I wanted. I do not know if TB sounds better but it seems to me closer to the original. Of course the purists will say that the sequence is better but its not quite that of TB. I'm not even sure that all sound the same TB from one to another.
    With reverb and distortion is very realistic in all cases, though of course we can speak of realism to the sound of a TB.
    The bass is deep and aggressive and highs are like TB.
    It sounds infinitely better than the MAM MB33 mk2 I had. It is truly incomparable. The MMA is really no its next level, opportunities, and finishing.
    Here the presentation of the machine is neat, pretty design psyche and its extras.
    I have long refused to be interested in this machine. I thought she was ugly and at first I was thinking it would be super difficult to edit. I came slowly and instead now I love: for her look and fidelity to the type of sound I was looking for.
    Ca groove, ca swing, glide, focus and function are great remix.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I did yesterday. Well it's not my first bike and not the last and I was asking for several months. I scoured the web looking for demos.
    Before I had the MAM MB33mk2, and I have copies on my v-synth sound and distortion of TB. I also have a Juno 106 with a filter that is fun and a sherman but it has absolutely nothing to do and that's why I cracked. It was either the Revolutionary or TB. TB is too expensive, with a sequence not better and the sound of the Revo is super close. I repeat myself on the other hand but the effects it's a shame! They have the merit to exist but that's all. The reverbs are still useful.
    Is saying that the bassline vst Phoscyon AudioRealism and are very good but I did not even ask the question.
    The Xoxbox is certainly very near the TB, can be more than the Revo, but the side of the plastic shell, a small machine, with a cobbled appearance and a less convenient sequence did not attract me much. Usually I like the concept machine "handmade in the garage" but did not attract me xox this time.
    There are also acidlab bassline and bombass but I did not like the sound. Maybe because the demos are often too dry without effects. It sounds really nice and I think it's good but less musical.
    Paid € 420 secondhand including shipping and in perfect condition with manual and power supply from London, it seems honest.
    I AM VERY GRATEFUL for the Revo. (And its functions)
