I don't think I'd buy a phatboy for it cuz my K5k has more knobs than it anyways and it works fine with that, I just wish it were more portable! I haven't been able to try the mods(for obvious reasons), and I still have to try some features like the PCF etc. so I think I'll bump my old rating up to a four. I was just a little steamed about the MIDI problem and had to vent :) By the way, anyone who knows how to use mods on "trial" versions email me...jake!

You definitely need to give Rebirth more time. The sequencer is an exact imitation of how the old 303s were programmed, it's cumbersome at first but condusive to some great basslines if you work at it.

You should also check out the Mods, while they leave the 303 lines alone they seriously change the drum samples on the 808 and 909. Really very cool.

If you want Midi implementation see if you can get the phatboy from somewhere...by itslef it brings Rebirth closer to a really practical tool in a studio.

By the way.......ahem.....you may not need to official version to use the mods.....but I never said it :)

Y know I can't make up my mind about this thing... there's so much fuss about it but I really don't see what the big deal is. It kinda sounds like a 303, at least from what I hear on acid house, but the sequencer is absolute shit IMHO -definitely the least user-friendly I've ever seen (is this how the real 303 is?) the drums are cool, but for some reason I expected more... I mean it's a nice "free" addition to my existing soft-synths but I would NEVER buy it-it's not worth the 200 bucks. It's fun controling it thru MIDI, but much to my surprise, it wouldn't accept any CC messages from my raveolution...grrrr (I mean look at the raveolution..it looks like it was fucking made for rebirth!) so I have to control it from my K5K, which just isn't the same.. *sniff * Fortunetly, I can control rubberduck with my 309, which I really suggest you try before buying this one... great prog! Don't get me wrong, I like Rebirth, and I'll probably use the 303x2 as filler for some tracks, but it is a tad overhyped, and the MIDI problem drops the rating from a solid 3 to a marginal 2. BOTTOM LINE: Try before you buy...many times, my first impressions were deceiving..

I love Rebirth. I got a chance recently to use a registered copy at a friends house with all the mods, and I plan on buying it as soon as I get my laptop in a month or two... It's got a really great sound... it took me a while to get used to it, but once I did I was cranking out patterns left and right. Definately a good buy if you use a computer for your music production.

cool program, its not what gear you have (or how much you payed for it) but what you do with it. having said that though fruityloops is better, you can youse your own samples with out having to make a mod, it has built in fx and reverb and now ts404 a rebirth style softsynth that is much more versitile as it has more types of oscilaters, fm, ringmod, and oscilator sync. + you can have as many chanels as youre cpu can handle.
