Anyone have any tips for the back adjusters? I have them both set to 12 o clock and it sounds pretty good. I'd like it to be as close to 303 sounding as possible. I really like this synth!

Well it has a bigger range so go minimum and work from there , of course it's also about how it's sequenced to get closer to 303

Said it before but I'll say it again, mine behaves differently if it's seq: from maschine or octatrack, try the same line with diff sequencers to see if you notice any changes

Honestly I've no idea where mine are at as I changed them long ago and haven't looked back , I probably should but I like its current state and they are hidden due to its location in a desk

It is a great little wonder I agree

Edit: was talking out of my arse! Slide works fine with BSP, only tried it briefly late last night and must have done it wrong. Will try the Zaquencer on it later as well.

Awesome sound btw! Wasn’t totally enamoured at first as the filter curve seemed really jumpy but fiddling with the pot on the back seems to have made it better to my ear, plus putting some time into it is definitely required to find those sweet spots. Was also slightly disappointed with how wobbly all the knobs are (except resonance, strangely) - is this the case with everyone else’s?

Mine are slightly wobbly but nothing too bad. What do you have your pots on the back at? Mine are both are 12 o clock but I'm looking for suggestions if you have any. It's so fun!

yup, wobbly pots but it has stood fine for a year now with no signs of any changes and it has been used a lot so don't stress it, obviously just a weak design but for a hundred quid i can't complain and the sound is killer so

yes for a simple box there are some secrets/sweetspots to be found

edit: OK i had to check my settings, offset is about 4pm or 10pm whichever way you prefer to view the arrow and the scale is at 5pm or 11pm , i really like these settings and it has been that way for as long as i can remember
