now I'm not sure, but I always thought the bassline in "Song of life" (Leftfield) was a 303? anyway, that one bassline is still one of the best sounding I've heard, 303 or not.

if so, well done and welcome!
...not quite. I'm a guitar player first and glimmertwins refers to the pen name given to the Jagger/Richards song writing team....although I checked out the Glimmer Twins you referred to just now and I'm definitely interested in hearing more.

...by the way - thanks everyone for the great replies! Clearly this isn't just a one trick pony. I was needing another project after finishing restoring a Rhodes and think I might take up making a XoXBox but wanted to make sure it was a sound I could get along with if I wasn't interested in making Acid. Thanks for everyone's thoughtful posts.

Massive Attack's "Protection" has one burbling away doing eighth notes.

people say that the 303 is unique for its acid sound, but i find its simple hollow square wave sound (square wave with hi rez and low cutoff) to be just as unique to the machine...for the life of me cannot think of any examples in any tunes off the top of my head though..
