Can’t afford a TB-303? No fear, it’s been replicated on the internet (kind of). The dream of using a TB-303 at work is finally achieved.
Roland’s TB-303 has been replicated a number of times in physical and virtual form over the years, but this is probably the first time it’s been done in a web browser.
Acid Machine is described by developers Errozero as a “work in progress”, but it’s already working better than a faulty TB-303 found on eBay. As well as featuring two of the famous bass synthesisers, Acid Machine also features a drum machine.
If you’ve used Propellerhead’s ReBirth before you’ll be familiar with the concept, but you probably don’t have ReBirth on your work computer, finally making the dream of writing acid house tracks in the office a reality.
Although it’s still in development, you can use it now and all you need is a half decent computer and Google Chrome for the best results. Have a go here.
