I downloaded Rubber Duck like a few years ago and never installed it or anything until I came upon it on one of my many "porn disks' last night. I totally forgot about it! We all know that there are like a million and one TB303 clones (hardware & software)out there so why should something called Rubber Duck be any different? In the past, I have reluctantly used Rebirth and more recently the TS404 synth contained within Fruity Loops (god, I hate that name). Rebirth was cool since the programming was damn near identical to that of a real 303 but it did take quite a bit of time to get it how you want it. The TS404 in FL relied pretty much on a piano roll style of programming...very easy to say the least. So like I was saying, I found the program (Rubber Duck) and for pure shits and giggles I went and installed it...The interface is a snap to program. I actually used my MIDI keyboard to fill the notes simply pressed the play button. I was pretty amazed that it sounded more like a TB303 than any other emulator (hardware/software)that I have ever used. It wasn't perfect, but damn near close. I has a real warm, thick, neuseating sort of tone that I haven't heard from a soft-synth. It's definatly dope little machine...It may not have all the fancy bells and whistles and this and that but it's tweaked out sound more than makes up for it!

Although it doesnt do a perfect emulation of the 303 - It is close enouph that people will recognize the sound. It's kind of limited and is good for generaly one thing, but it does it well. To me, the sounds seem thicker than those found in Rebirth. Programs at the under $100 price range tend to go two ways - Those with great sound but limited, or those that are very flexible but are lacking in sound quality. Rubber Duck reprisents the first.

Please note that you should be very sure of the type of sound your music is like. Like the 303, Rubber Duck is harsh, and thus makes it hard to impliment well in many forms of music (This is why the Tb-303 didn't catch on very fast) - but can sound great in others.

Midi is laggy beyond description.

Try before you buy.

This is the biggest pile of shite I have ever used. Is it possible to rate it 0 out of 5?

Anyway...if you have any sense, discard what all these people say and take my opinion:

-------------------------------------------------- ITS BOLLOCKS --------------------------------------------------

If you still want it, download the demo then go to www.crack.ru and get a free code so that you don't have to pay $40.

Catch all you sad people later......
