well, they do look like a lot of fun. Roland Aira TB-3, TR-8, VT-3, and System-1 Demo - Sweetwater Sound - YouTube
if these are digital they won't interest me at all. The aira tb3 sounds like crap. Putting it in a new box won't change that. tr9- if no ind outs what's the point?
...the game so excuses me if i ask a stupid questtion I’m trying to record my korg electribe and roland tb3 in studio one trough an audiobox usb96 and in having a lot op problems the sound is distand and muffed i tried everything i found online all the pc settings i could find...
If you are playing live, in the mix, five stars.
- easier to use then classic tb-303
- easier to sequence
- x/y env is nice "one finger" modulation versus needing two hands
- sequences outboard
in general...the sequencer is the star, and the sound is great.
