Bass Bot TT 303 - Roland TB 303 Clone

Bass Bot TT 303 - Roland TB 303 Clone - demo 2 - Alesso - Years

Published on Oct 17, 2012 by DJjondent
I'm not seeing demo 1 anywhere so here is 2 & 3 is below.

"This is demo of a new Roland tb 303 clone.
Its called the Bass Bot TT-303 by Cyclone Analogic
Almost identical to a vintage 303 except it has presets and
midi in/out.,
CV/gate out seems identical to a vintage 303 as does programming.
Unlike all those other 303 clones out there this one could easily be mistaken for an original.
... at least in its external appearance.

more audio demos coming ...
I'll do a direct audio comparison with a real 303 soon.

Tune is Alesso's Years..... sequenced in Abelton."

How to Program a Bass Bot TT 303 - Roland TB 303 clone - Demo 3

Published on Oct 18, 2012 by DJjondent

"A quick 3rd demo of the TT303 by Cyclone Analogic.
This video covers traditional programming and play. No midi or external sequencers used this time.

If you're familiar with writing a melody on a Roland TB303 you'll probably see that the procedure is identical.

The first part of the video is standard "Pattern Play".

Then we switch to "write/pattern mode"
Here is where we write our tune.

First we need to erase our previous pattern.
Then set the number of steps (in this example its 12) .. Max of 16.
Hit pitch mode.
Write the melody.
Then into "time mode" to tell the sequencer how many notes to play.
Hit "run" to play the tune :-)

This melody is kinda boring :-( .... lets spice it up with some accents, slides or transpose up/down.

Just like the good old days.:-)"
