I'm quite sure there are a few more clueless people with 303s in remaining in this world.


Yeah, the people making acid with them.


Because they should be used as an alternative to a real bass player along with a 606 instead of a drummer ?


Google the word "joke" for me.

Google is the answer to all.

Google "TR 909 TB 303" and wow, this thread pops up! Education for future buyers.

That would be great, thanks!


OK here is a basic demo that I did for a mate, I've also posted this on another forum. It is basically knob twiddling on a 1bar loop showing the extremes of the settings for each part. No compression or effects where used.

Here is the new kick module on it's own starting off with a copy of a 909 kick and going through the motions of various types of kick from psytrancey to 808 style.

same again , no effects or compression used.

have fun.

Thanks again, I like some of the sounds you created, but I'm going to have to think about what I want to do.

I'm going to have to disagree on this one. The EMX doesn't do the 303 right and the drum samples in the EMX aren't the best unless you effect the f**k out of them... I love the EMX, but it isn't the right substitute in this situation.


....but it does it closer than anything else the 'big 3' are offering these days. MC-09? 505/808/909 ?? Not as close as EMX.

there's no way to do it spot-on for cheap with real hardware anymore...unless you get lucky on CL or something.

i don't think you understand, the thing that is unique to the TB-303 is the sequencer, the EMX just won't behave in the same manner as the 303's sequencer. The MC-09 is a little more closer than the EMX - Shift+Step 16 = Vintage Mode.

also you can't make Accents affect the resonance and decay on an EMX, unlike the 303 can.
