A 303 with patch memory makes sense to me.

What's wrong with instant recall of sounds? Is it a crime or something? :roll:

Is there a particular reason why it has to be 1-oscillator? With 2, you get more flexibility (fat detune, sync, cross-mod), and you can still turn down the 2nd one when you want the 1-osc sound.

I vote Little Phatty. Just because there's two oscillators in the box doesn't mean you have to use both of them on every patch...

yes, exactly... the MFB Synth II fits the bill...but I seriously want it stripped down. A TB-303 with patch storage is perfect.

Ok, here's the deal... diss all you want. I work on many songs at one time. The MnM lacks in bass...and I love the TB-303 style bass. I'd give up synthesis options for that 303 type sequencer any day. I'm not talking acid either...I'm talking more subdued basses. Since I switch back and forth alot between many songs I'm working on, I don't want to dial in the sound all the time. TW is right...I am looking for something that doesn't exist. 1 osc...because I like the simplicity and it would have one specific duty. Ideal: 1 osc, tb-303 sequencer, patch storage, and battery power in a small box. The Korg EA-1 is closest...except it sounds like s**t.

What about software?

This would give you the TB sound, a sequencer and patch memory

For more hands on control you could par it up with this.

And if you work on a laptop you get battery power.

Ssshhh! I like watching JS buy and sell gear. It makes me feel better about my recent gear turnover rate.

LP is one of the most outstanding analog bass synths out there JSR. I really think U should get one. Iknow U had a Voyager at one time, but LP is so much better, esp. on the bottom end, as just turn down Osc 2--PRESTO! Yr 1 osc monosynth w/PM that can get U the bass U crave.

:oops: I already had one... I'm looking for something smaller. However, like TW said...I should just forget about it and will. It's about space at this point... I don't have any.

novation bass-station: check

check
-- MIDI In, Out, Thru
in and out, no thru
-- 32 patch memory
8 + sysex
-- Arpeggiator
get an EA-1 to sequence :)
-- Specs: Analog w/ one OSC with say, five or six waveforms; a 12, 24, LP & HP Filter with noise and resonance; Filter and Amp ADSR.
- 2 osc, sawtooth or squarewave, switchable 12/24 LP resonant filter, dual ADSR, LFO.. ok its not the same but not a dealbreaker
-- $500 U.S.
$300, $400 if you really need that ea-1 to sequence it.

seriously, why not the bassstation?
