Roland TB-303
It is a machine escros !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! fuier !!!!!!!!

USE

Here it is on tr and tb have a recognizable standard analog and makes kiffer .... but that's just the problem also has no tb .... and I am very lympide, unseen, in has been used to make it sound a bit without making any originality in using the beats walking alone .... Qd Simon says "good first we did not have the money for the 909 and 303, 2 everyone used them, while the other three were using too 4 we needed equipment that captures the time in which we live, samplers were perfect for ca. Some drums that decides what we saw, samples which reflect the age in which we live, and ferrying a personal message from our hearts, not so comfortable when dealing with wordless music and using the same equipment as everyone ... "

whateverman's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Single forever!"

Roland TB-303
We can not really call it a keyboard! No controllers, no polyphony, no aftertouch, no original MIDI. Patterns 16 max not, the choice of square or sawtooth wave, DIN sync, THE its acid and nothing else. :)

UTILIZATION

Simple Config, comic manual editing ridiculously complex patterns but we made it and paradoxically, we take the fold pretty quickly. :)

SOUNDS

It was nice to make me listen to all types of emulations more or less successful is in the low infra round and deep and shrill treble that TB is widening the gap with pretenders to the throne. Even if she does not know what else to do, she does divinely and is easy to forget its shortcomings. Obviously, it added a distortion and other effects allows access to a wider range of sounds and especially to realize the magnitude of the potato it in the stomach. In realizing deaf.

OVERALL OPINION

I used the last fifteen years, despite its light weight and plastic cabin, it remains robust.
The tempo spin for some time, but nothing too serious since it is mainly used in sync.
Quality / price ratio Cheros a bit at the time (5000 FF) although nickel and including all the original package (box, bag, manual and manual shortcuts). You could find at half the price, the acid is no longer fashionable, but they were not always in good condition. Although I have been very cool machines between hands, the 303 retains a unique grain that is its charm, and yes, it would hurt me, but if necessary, I would buy even at twice the price I paid (either current argus). It certainly is not for everyone but for those who love the acid much as me, this is a must-have essential for unbeatable! :)

gagarin001's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" TB303 recurrent drought but just!"

Roland TB-303
while 1 apsect cheap and fake and yet ....

UTILIZATION

I do not remember ever not even have that manual. It is fast.

SOUNDS

I love all the sounds (rather limited admittedly) it produces. Especially with the square wave modulation and cut off at 0, almost donf emphasis and pitch to make low min for large

OVERALL OPINION

A fabulous machine legend with his imitated a million times or so but rarely equaled by more expensive machines like the devil fish. Top with TB? we win by with just the batteries and headphones to write bass lines.
Obviously this is diificle to integrate a modern daw, but analog is qd even another sound. I personally have sold a pittance there qq years while I was in the darkest dèche. Eternal regret, because apart from its typical acid, it eput make fabulously punchy bass lines for the tek or other electronic genres.

psantoni's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Nice, but completely overwhelmed ..."

Roland TB-303
This vintage is so laborious for integration into a modern studio, there are two solutions:
- The bender (modification noon circuit bending ... yuck :)
- Used equipment vintage compliant (TR-X0X. ..) or adapters (midi / synch Doepfer ...)
The CV / gate output is nice to control other synth (or modular), however the glide is not sent to the CV output.

UTILIZATION

Easy to use, can be sequences very quickly if you have a little musical knowledge. No musical knowledge is much more complicated, because if we magnifier on a pitch or a measure, you can not change the last note published, or then again the sentence. The last solution is to make random sequences, nice but boring quickly ...
Even when it is long enough to set a good bass line very complex compared to a modern sequencer ...
To edit the sound that is ultra basic, can not be simpler ...

SOUNDS

It seems that the sound is slightly different on each machine. On mine? This is the classic TB-303:
- Good potato
- Very limited in terms of sound palette,
- Resonance ultra cliche,
- The stereotype of the ACID ...
Nevertheless, TB sounds good as it should. I love the sound it delivers when not abused resonance. I usually torque oscillator with A-110 (controlled by the sequencer TB), and brings out all of a Band-Pass Filter + Disto. With settings a little late you can get the original sounds.

OVERALL OPINION

I used 2/3 months. Personally I would never buy a TB-303 at the current price of the occasion (on my left). For me nothing justifies the price of this bike except the collection. A XOXBOX has a price / quality ratio much higher than that of TB-303 offers much more functionality, higher sound quality (yes, even better) and much wider possibilities.
Yes it is after vintage charm to it ... This is still a machine overwhelmed at all levels. Following is a passionate collector, well filled wallet always find his account.
Nevertheless I like this little TB-303, it serves me in my living room decoration next to a Bontempi organ. I out occasionally for fun, but it always returns to the decor.

If I had the choice, I would buy a XOXBOX without hesitation. 150 € if it is to be honest about, to € 1,000 or more is a total scam ...
