Only produced from 1981 to 1984, the Roland TB-303 was a tremendous commercial flop as a replacement for the bass guitar, however it soon found its place as one of the most-loved synthesizers for what became known as Electronic Dance Music (EDM). An ultra-affordable and faithful homage to the iconic synthesizer that spawned house music, plus an all-new Distortion circuit, the TD-3-BU lets you conjure up virtually any sound with incredible finesse and ease. With its pure analogue signal path, 16-step Sequencer and authentic VCO, VCF and VCA filters, the TD-3-BU is sure to become one of your favourite synthesizers.
Great care has been taken in engineering the TD-3-BU, including the true to the original VCO, VCF and VCA designs and pure analogue circuitry with matched transistors. This highly-focused attention to detail is what gives TD-3-BU its ultra-flexible sound shaping capability, which covers everything from super-fat bass and lead tones to stunning effects - all the way out to the otherworldly sounds of your imagination.
Your TD-3-BU comes ready to rock, thanks to its default signal routing that doesn't require lifting a single patch cable to instantly create amazing sounds. The highly-intuitive layout lets you easily tap into the inspired sounds of 1980s and '90s progressive rock, wave, EDM and synth-pop music tracks that made rock and roll history.
The very heart of TD-3-BU's sound is its versatile 24 dB / octave filter, which lets you freely experiment with the low-pass Cutoff frequency and Resonance settings to dial in the perfect sound.
TD-3-BU's authentic Voltage Controlled Oscillator (VCO) with transistor wave-shaping circuitry is ultra-easy to use and provides your choice of reverse-sawtooth or pulse waveforms for the ultimate in sound creation.
The onboard sequencer with 7 tracks allows you to program up to 16 steps of notes and rests and save them as a Pattern. You can record, save and recall up to 250 patterns, all of which can be stored in the 4 Groups. Your sequences can be played either in Keyboard mode, where you create and store the pattern, or Step mode which allows you to interact while composing a pattern. The onboard Arpeggiator features wide patterns you can build to provide a virtually-endless array of sound effects. Both the sequencer and arpeggiator in the TD-3-BU are fun, mesmerizing and totally addictive...
When you want to add even more power to your performance, just flip the Distortion On / Off switch and dial in the perfect amount of Drive to push the "envelope" to the max.
16-Note Poly Chain Ready:
While it is a monophonic instrument (one note at a time), TD-3-BU's 16-note Poly Chain function lets you combine multiple synthesizers for up to 16-voice polyphony - plus provides vastly improved reliability and stability over its 1970s and '80s predecessors.
TD-3-BU has 11 controls and 28 switches to give you direct and real-time access to all important parameters, all laid out in a highly-intuitive format that puts the joy back into your music creation. And you can expand TD-3-BU's tone-sculpting capabilities beyond your wildest dreams by utilizing the multi-I / O patchbay to connect external devices!
