There is no emulator in existance which can get the Accent right without hours of programming control data. Don't blame the machine for lack of innovation, it only does what it's users tell it to. I have found my 303 to be extremely versatile, compared to what I was expecting from it. I've used it for everything from bass sounds (nothing does it better), to the classic acid sound, to one-shot effects, to big, fat synth leads (a kenton midi box and the right effects are all you need). Throw a sampler in the mix and suddenly all these "limitations" seem to evaporate. Granted, you'll never get a string sound right out of the box, but use your imagination a little and you might surprise yourself.

the power of tb303 is not just its sound,also,its portability and its unique sequencing method and functions.well,the reason comes close on sounds and features if u sequence it properly and even better and u must get a top grade soundcard,ok,thats all u do,how about protability?ok,u got a g4 powerbook and the firewire ducker to expand the sound card slots and also hd,so that there's a lot of this and that options to bring,ok,its your own red tape,as a result,how much u need to pay for a g4 powerbook and all the options?u know its just the starting time toexplore the softsynths and even the powerful g4 powerbook can actually run 1-2 softsynths stabily along w/ other audio tracks/heavy real-time plug ins,sequencing software... hey man,we only need to bring a light-weighted portable silver box and accompany w/ other best sounding analog gears or some hd tracks backup if needed.using the tb w/ some low-cost distortion pedals or filters u can get a great sequence.

A very versatile tool that has grown on me over time. Integrated into a modular system the possibilities are endless. Few musical instruments have had a great impact on advacing music in the modern age.. and I feel that the TB-303 has only begun to be explored.

ok, this synth is nowhere near a modular in flexability. to be hones it is quite limited, but i just can´t help myself falling in love with this machine over and over again. i just love it´s sound, filter and gosh do i like the sequencer. this is not a unit for everybody and the second hand prices sometimes tends to be astronomical. but this acidbox it is not to blame. everything about it look, feel and smell genuine and i don´t think i could live without it. there are many great synths but only a few classics - this is one of them!

Here's my own take on the 303..... I've always dreamed of owning one...maybe just as some sort of phallic symbol..but how can u not love that sound? Well, theyve always been outta my price range..until i joined a project where we all wanted one. So, we went to Ebay...and won one for $700! Well, needless to say, its not worth its second hand price...although...$700 is a steal for one of these...but that sound. Rebirth comes close but is not as fat. I love my 303 i wouldve gladly paid 500 more for it..it just has this spontaneous creative energy over it. i find myself pluggin in a bass line...and all of a sudden i have about 8 different beat ideas going on in my head while i jam away on my nord lead. so yes...this is my take on this machine.
