Description

The battery-powered TB-03 is a direct descendant of the famous TB-303 Bass Line Synth and puts the TB303's classic sounds in the palm of your hand. The layout and controls are the same as the original, and so are the sounds, thanks to Roland's advanced ACB technology that recreates the 303's hypnotic liquid grooves.

The TB-03 goes even further with several enhancements not found on the original model. The four-digit LED display makes programming easier and more accurate, while overdrive and delay effects let you unleash a wall of sound to send any crowd into a frenzy. In the studio, the TB-03 can send control information either via MIDI or its USB port. The USB port doubles up as an audio interface.
