found it on french forum where they were discussing the V2 - i think it means
the mkII - not sure now ...

edit: just click da link, it's for the mkII.

That's why the confusion for me, I think the mkII is the the same functionality as an updated to V2 original TT-303, so the same manual may apply, just different look. though not sure...

i reckon that's unlikely, since you have things like Accent CV out - no idea
about sequencer firmware though. think they're just different machines.
but i wouldn't know. i only know mine is V2'd because of the light display
on startup. (i'd quite like to get another one, but that would be 303 overkill,
and i'd have to get rid of something else - although i do think 2 of the identical
machine is the way to go)
(mind you, i'm revising my outlook on everything since the rm1x showed up,
makes life a bit/lot easier)

A lot of physical UI changes too.

The TTs sequencer has similar quirks to the original and is worth using IMO.
Se the tt78 page, actually cyclone are not invisible or ghost like.

Sale happening right now, alive and well it seems.

If you wanted to use them as a sound module for midi pattern triggers why not just send midi as is but from a really good sequencer? You can access all functions via midi that the face and sequencer can access and more, and it can be done simultaneously, win win.

I think they've always had pretty poor communication. I enjoyed the product but I never got returned emails for whatever questions I had.

I'm good with the plastic because the unit still feels solid; replacing the case with metal wouldn't really improve anything would it? And I gotta be honest man...I'm tired of the plastic 'click-clack' buttons Elektron demonized lol. The silicone is near-silent and when I'm lacing beats together I don't want to hear that annoying click-clack

Say no to the click-clack

Anyone here use an external sequencer for the bassbot, if so what do you use? My ideal setup is an IOS app that can run as a MIDI sequencer and support accents/slides.

ok... i've noticed my bassbot's Line Out is much lower than the VolcaFM.
better level on headphone out, obviously. how is the level on yours?(mk1)

mine has a fault at Mix In, and i'm wondering if this could be related.
basically, if i plug anything into Mix In i seem to hear a 'ghost' oscillator
doubling up. i'm wondering if i've blown something there running a drum
machine into it - dr-550 kick drum ... can a kick drum pulse mess up an
input like that? or some other audio signal?

maybe it's because volcaFM is headphone output level ?

have been sent the v2 firmware, with instaDJ2 and the Cyclone studio, if anyone is looking for it.
there is also the v1.1 fw and instaDJ1 and what looks like a useful pdf for the new features. instructions also for performing the update.
i'll upload the zip as i received it, since it doesn't seem available elsewhere.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
TT-303 Bass Bot
InstaDJ Release 2.0.2014-1202

Refer to the InstaDJ 2.0.2014-1202 User Guide for instructions for using the new features and further details about these changes and fixes.

Changes:
- Added TAP Input Mode for pattern programming.
- The pattern generator function produces a wider range of keys and down/up modifiers.
- Added pattern unroll function. This automatically loops and extends patterns to a length of 16, 32, or 64 steps.
- Added pattern playback in MIDI Mode for improved integration with DAWs.
- Added the Live Performance features to MIDI Mode.
- Added Arpeggiator Mode copy and paste functions. The version of the pattern that the Arpeggiator is currently playing can be copied to the clipboard and pasted as a new pattern.
- Added pattern color edit function to Arpeggiator Mode.
- Added sequencer gate width setting (global setting).
- Adjusted the taper on the Tempo control to increase the accuracy within the most commonly used range of tempos.
- Increased LED indicator refresh rate to reduce LED flicker on some video cameras and improve color representation.

Bug Fixes:
- Fixed Arpeggiator Mode to play the notes of the first bar more consistent with subsequent bars.
- In Live Performance Mode, the DUAS indicator LEDs now illuminate when pressed.
- Eliminated potential MIDI feedback loops when controlling the TT-303 from a DAW.
- Other miscellaneous bug fixes.

Nowhere near being able to download this today so I ask, have you successfully backed up your TT via the studio app? I know people have moaned they couldn't , I've not done a back up yet as only just wrote all the banks to 100%

I'm sure I have it saved somewhere from my tt606 purchase but again, never used it so I'm curious how it goes

With regards to triggering the patterns from Cubase all you have to do is go to the transport menu and at the bottom is synchronisation you have to set the midi clock to send to the port that you have connected from the midi out of Cubase to your unit on the pattern in play mode you want to play mine worked first time good luck with that I think I may know who you mean who has the 303's
Right, my TT-303 has sat amongst my setup for a few years kinda unloved/unused because of the single note pattern play problem, today I sat down to get this resolved - finally got pattern play to work and in sync with my DAW(saved default daw setup), now also watched a tutorial for the sequencer, it was ok - but it was all completely random with regards to rests, slides and accents. but now I can finally use it properly once I sussed the programming of patterns, so I need to study this now...gonna read up at work during my breaks...

Thanks for the heads up...

I tried sequencing it with my DAW() when I first got it but the general consensus is to use the onboard sequencer, I couldn't get the Daw to send midi clock for the patterns so gave up on it till today. I'm not an all out Acid Ted but I'd like it for some added spice now and then, it's got to be the most complicated bit of gear I own though - It's staying for the long term(coz everybody needs a 303 I heard), so I'll get it eventually lol...I'm a slower learner btw

I hope so, I've just never knuckled down to the unit, its took a back seat in my setup. Getting back into my electro and liking some of the soulful electro and breakbeat/acid tinged electro ATM...its the only bit of my setup stumping me, I'll get their eventually.

Stick with it - it does take a while.

When I originaly had it, I kept forgetting to flick the switch to MIDI.

Personally, I use it with Cubase, and as long as you set the MIDI channel up correctly, and activate the external sync, it syncs perfectly.

Fully agree with the comments above about the square wave - it's lovely and squelchy on this box.

I also have to pick up the manual every time I use it, to be honest. I find it a little more complicated than the OG.

Tried with the TT-303 again, I used instaDJ whassy to make presets to fill banks 1 to 7, but in midi mode using my daw I can only play back 2 each of the patterns in bank 1 and 2 only(Keys are over/about an octave apart that sound), so I still think something is up?

I've even changed the midi in channel as per manual, and tested the different daw sync configurations...

Right, I have filled seemingly bank AA / BB with patterns in PRESET 1, I can now trigger all AA / BB(16 patterns) from the DAW(yay).

But How do I get out of AA / BB on the hardware and into A / B banks(In pattern play/write modes), I am checking the manual but there's loads of it and can't seem to find this info?

..midi mode and page 18 of the manual ..and I presume preset knob should be on the track that you want to play
