So you could match or better the 303 sound with a Yamaha Bland-o-tron or whatever it is they are churning out this month?
Yep. Show me a synth with a single sawtooth/square waveform and a filter and I’ll give you a TB303 impression that will fool 80% of the people 80% of the time. Hand me an SH-09, an MC-202, an SH-101, a Pro-1, a JP-8080 (add a lot of other examples to taste)… and I’ll ‘better’ it.
The TB-303 was nothing special, but has been hyped up to be so by people who have a vested interest in its market value.
Not just a tad bitter that you gave yours away when you could have got over a grand for it then?
Nah. I was hired to program the damned thing as a substitute for a real bassist. Good riddance! I think 'free' was a fair price to save my blood pressure and fingers!
