The Touch Bassline name on the front of the TB-3 perfectly sums up what this box is about: you play the touchpad to create monophonic basslines and sequences.

Roland finally did it — or rather they did something similar. The sound is convincing, but the interface is rather left‑field. Despite a few shortcomings, though, the TB3 represents good value for money.

  • +

    Believable 303 sounds., It isn't just a TB303 clone., Includes effects and a wider range of sounds than expected., Not expensive., Can serve as a 24‑bit audio and MIDI interface.

  • -

    Some vital 303 controls are less accessible than they should be., It isn't just a TB303 clone!, Touchpad doesn't convince., Currently there's no response to glide over MIDI, therefore pattern output cannot be reproduced accurately.

This thing is so much fun! It's got more options than the original and more sounds and effects. My Sweetwater sales rep was extremely helpful and answered all my questions prior to purchase. Just get one!

This thing and my Elektron machines go together like peanut butter and jelly! Unreal sounds!

It took me a few days to transition from my keyboard synth, but the TB-3 has unsurpassed tone diversity. I mainly use it in production but I might fit it into my performance rig. Now I'm eyeing the accompanying drum machine from Roland!!Great gear!

Yes, it isn't a 303. It is better in almost every way. I know it is sacrilege to say, but it sounds BETTER than a 303. I can't tell you how much fun I've had re-creating acid classics with this. It is like having a 303 and a bank of effects all at your fingertips.

What so great about this synth is you punch in a simple bassline into in and choose the sound you want and then tweak the filter and you get the sound . i got mine one month after i got the TR8 and together is like Batman and Robin.

I love the TB-3. It's really something. Endless fun and enjoyment.

If you want a 303 but with all of todays modern features, then this is for you. Ive listened to many comparisons between this and a TB303 and can't really tell the difference, some people can and if you really care about that 1% difference then maybe you should look into one of the much more...

I'm so glad they made this again and put some of the old sounds in it from the TB-303 I will be using this in lot of my songs grate job Roland

Monophonic synth TB 303 types. No keyboard but a touchpad, and an internal sequence that extends to a C0 C6 but if the sequence with an external keyboard can play a C0 C8.
