DIN Sync RE-303 FAQ: Q: What is the RE-303? A: the RE-303 is a replica of the Roland TB-303 motherboard and switchboard Q: Why do we need yet another 303 knockoff? A: There have been many clones, I honestly wanted to make a genuine replica. Now the dead TB-303’s with broken motherboards can come back to life and new TB-303s can be born. Q: Hasn’t this been done already? A: Actually no, not in the purest form. We’ve had the x0xb0x which sounded very close but didn’t look the part. We’ve had the TT-303 which looks that part but is not a genuine replica of the original hardware. The RE-303 circuit boards have been made by dissecting a mint condition pristine TB-303 and manually recreating the board in CAD from the hardware rather than the service schematics. Every nuance and mistake in the hardware not in the service notes is recreated in the RE-303. It really is for all intents and purposes a TB-303. Q: When can I get one? A: As soon as they are ready, just post on the waiting list thread. By the nature of this project It’s likely to be limited, so first come first served. Q: What about kits? A: This is likely to never happen sorry, this project is probably going to be the most hardcore DIY many have tried. But it will be worth the effort! Q: What about rare parts, the VCA and CPU, memory chips, switches pots etc etc. A: There currently exists many solutions for these today and I’m actively working on some as part of the project. Q: How long will this all take? A: How long is a piece of string?

RE-303 project (it's not a TB-303 clone, it's a replica)

...the rest can be found around the world. Since the QS CPU is now officially confirmed to work in the RE-303 (there was a problem at the beginning of the project which was power related), this isn't such a big deal anymore and there'll be a new CPU specially developed for this project too...

RE-303 project (it's not a TB-303 clone, it's a replica)

...Yes this is Paul Barker from DinSync.info I'll make some comments, but I won't reply to this thread more sorry. The re303 was made by myself by hand, there was not any photocopying it was made from reverse engineering a real TB. No schematics were used to make the board at all. This may...

Which 303 Clone Does It Best?

well if it's about coming closest, it's the RE-303, even if I might be biased. /thread.
