Bass Boy TB-303 Style MIDI Controlled Bass Line Synth

via this auction

See the BassBoy label for some demos.

"A great little synth module that has TB-303 style features and full midi CC control for:

Saw or Square wave
Filter cutoff
Envelope modulation
Filter gain
Cutoff step
Panic (all notes off)

You can set it to any midi channel and 2 different modes, one for sequencers that allow overlapping notes to produce slides, and one that works with sequencers that don’t allow overlapping notes, in this mode slides are set by note velocity.

It is built into a sturdy aluminium housing, it comes with printed instructions.
You set the mode and midi channel using internal jumpers, by default it is set to midi channel 1 and for sequencers that allow overlapping notes.

It takes a standard 12v positive center power supply, not included but a very common type easily available on ebay for not much money.

This is not a TB-303 clone, it has no knobs or built in sequencer, but if you like acid type sounds then you will like this, the built in distortion can make some superb harder sounds, but of course it can also do more subtle stuff too.

It responds to midi CC for all parameters, these are handily printed on the too panel to make setting up with your sequencer or DAW easy."
