VOICE the internal CPU manages 1 voices with 2 different waveforms: saw and square with autotune calibration procedure.
Generated sound can be tweaked using the upper knobs functions.
SOUND FUNCTIONS the sound can be modified using 6 knobs, some of them have wider range than the original TB303:
- Tuning: changes the VCO oscillator pitch
- Cutoff freq: amount of filtered VCF
- Resonance: amount of VCF resonance
- Env Mod: sets the amount of signal from the EG that reaches the VCF cutoff
- Decay: sets the decay time of the Envelope
- Accent: sets the amount of the EG that reaches the VCF resonance.
FILTER transistor filter VCF at 4 poles.
ENVELOPE generator is based on IC BA6110 VCA chip (not BA6612 which are getting hard to find also previously implemented on x0xb0x project) and controls decay and accent.
SEQUENCER the TT303 has many new enhancements compared to original silver box introducing the OS INSTADJ (now V2). TT030 also includes the not-so-intuitive internal sequencer with some modification: notes are entered with the mini-keyboard, then each note can be set with length, portamento, slide and octave transpose (+/-1) or shifted with pattern rotation new function.
If after decades of TB you're tired to manually program the TT, then random some patterns with the "Bot generation" that features 7 different algorithms generator (+mutator variation) or use the intelligent arpeggiator (4 modes: up, down, up-down and random).
MIDI notes can be directly played with external keyboard/sequencer, velocity above 112 with trigger the Accent twang. All parameters are mapped to Midi control change.
SYNC the bass bot is automatically synched to external Midi clock, but won't work with traditional DIN SYNC unless with a third-part clock converter.

No battery inside, non-volatile memory technology inside; data and patterns can be saved to Midi exclusive systems.
ROLAND TB303 VS CYCLONE BASS BOT TEST we recorded some patterns for this great match between the original TB303 and the replica TT303:
TEST NOTE: The Tb 303 is on the LEFT channel and always start first.
RELATED FAMILY tb303 is maybe the most cloned machine ever made, dozen for more or less good emulation of the silver box.
||Roland TB303 (2014) should be the official successor of the Tb303 with new outfit. A digital cheap machine, not so great IMHO.
||Roland Tb-03 (2016) boutique series is a remake of the tb3 which is a remake of the tb303- lol- Not tested yet
