right, i thought this thing was lame when i first got it.. then i got logic 5 and realised you could automate the whole damn thing...
gui... 10. it is in a straight line. it is one screen. what more do you want. alright the colours are rank, but who cares.
sound... oh my god... get this into logic. stick the logic phase distortion and then a compressor set to a proper level on this baby and it howls. best bit is the accent and dist turned up full, tune/oct turned low, the wave on square and the reso right up. now turn the cutoff down. PHAT AS FUCK. this thing is more than a 303, and sounds totally different. if you want mellow warbley 303 get the tau. if you want the crack rush get this.
This is a very simple synth with that does a good 303 style emulation. I use it quite often in my productions for doing acid style synth lines. To record automation, just click on the green lights and edit. Also, if you click on the cutoff word it will light up, and the filter type changes from low pass to high pass giving you some interesting lead sounds. By clicking on the panning word, it will now switch left and right for every other note. You can adjust the spread of this effect, which makes a very interesting effect when going from no panning to hard auto panning. By itself, it sounds very bland, but if you run it through a delay (I suggest double delay) that is beat synced it really sines. Resonance sounds fairly good until about 75% where you get that digital character. The envelope on the filter sounds great with high resonance, and will really scream run through distortion. No presets, but the current settings save with your song.
