Behringer can do better.
X0XBOX or TT-303 have way better seq. than OG 303.
Murderous duck!

Oh FFS! Why??? The original 303 sounded like shite, the best clones to date sound like shite and sadly, if this is an authentic repro, this will sound like shite. Never has their been more bollox wrapped in cow shite spread as some mystical crap as there has been bout the 303.

I suppose the answer to the why is of course obvious...there are enough numb nuts out there who buy into the crap!

as a massive acid fan, i disagree 100%, but, im very surprised Behringer bothered with this.

if the built in distortion is any good, it's a no brainer at that (alleged) price

At that price, I can see the appeal of using one of these primarily as a sequencer, occasionally as a filter/distortion box and once in a blue moon as a 303.

Give over, it's a f**king superb sound, and I don't even like sinthesisers.

If you don't like the 303 sound but want a small analog sequenced device, the Crave is arguably even better value https://www.thomann.de/gb/behringer_crave.htm

analog hardware at software prices....We live in amazing times!

For £150 it seems too good to be true considering it comes with its own distortion built into it, I look forward to the comparison demo's though
