This thing is fucking fabulous! I'm tired of people comparing it to rebirth. First off, rebirth is $200, rubberduck is $40. No comparison already, for my poor student ass! People bitch about how it's only one "303" but you can export a groove to WAV and bring it back into the drumbank which automatically syncs to the tempo and voila-two tracks! It's not tailor-made for acid, but it has much more potential and versatility than steinberg's prog IMHO. Just hook it up to a electribe/raveolution/phat-box-whatever-it's-called and you have killer realtime control of almost all parameters, or you can even use your joystick-nice! Gritty filters, several oscillator waveforms, and killer squelch buttons for gabber/happy hardcore! Think of what it CAN do, not what it can't. Great bang for your buck!

IMHO, this thing is better (ie. more useful & diverse/flexible/etc...) than the Rebirth program. I think the basslines are way fatter than the 338. The Rebirth just seems to sound the same plus the drum machine is too limiting unless you just wantto follow the pack... With this Rubber Duck,you can go way, way out to trance land & since you can add your own cool beats, I think the results are usually better. Sure, the new Rebirth v.2.0 has some killer new features, but it still sounds sort of cliche whereas this RD seems to have much more sonic possibilities in the right hands... Plus its a bargain for the price!You can get the Killinest basslines with this thing (& maybe a good doobie as well!) I mean it can freakin' ROCK the monitors off the bleedin' wall, Jack!!!! I love it for basslines--its one of the very best software synths around. Worship it, people--it is the coolest bassline PC synth in alot of ways...

I've got demos for this and rebirth and I have to say rubberduck sounds great. It has a different sound to re-birth and more sonic possibilities. Even though I dont know much about 303's and how they should sound, if you use a lot of squelch, overdrive and delay on rubberduck, the sounds you can make sound much more 'hardcore' sounding than rebirth. I think rebirth has a boring 'samey' acid 303 sound while this has a RAVE! sound to it!

Downloaded demo last night, paid 40 marks to register today.

The Rubberduck works great so far. In fact, I love it. fairly

amazing virtual analog bass sounds with easy interface. Almost

needs no manuel it's so intuitive. I would rate it a 5 but haven't had a

chance to fully use midi with it as yet.

Rubberduck is fantastic. It's totally unfair to compare this to ReBirth. Rubberduck was a more

private production, and created way before the Propellerheads site went

up. Also, Rubberduck isn't this straight-on 303 emulator, it's more of a nod

in the direction of the 303. It's so-so for acid, but great for any type

of bassline. Where the TB-303 has quirky limits and a not-so-friendly

sequencer, Rubberduck is really user-friendly and goes all over the place!

Basslines in so many different flavours can be made! The filter isn't as

squelchy as it could be, but it has *plenty* of wobble. The &quot;attack&quot; slider

is a nice bonus. Plus, there's a dual oscillator and a LOAD of different waveform options. I also like that you don't need expensive MIDI crap to jam on the knobs in

real-time, you can just hook up a joystick! *GREAT* feature. Rubberduck isn't for people who want to fool people into thinking they had

enough money to buy a 303, it's for people that need skronky bass for their
