Touch The Bass

The pressure-sensitive touch pad lets you create patterns and interact with the unit during performance. Control pitch and volume, tweak filters and even control modulation by simply pressing down on the pad with your finger.


Old + New Sounds

Roland fully reproduced the 303’s sawtooth and square wave oscillators, as well as the -18dB per octave ladder low-pass filter. Additionally, the TB-3 is packed with new sounds: Bubbling synth basses, hard distortion basses, trippy delay sounds, etc.


Sequence Basslines

An attractive aspect of the original TB-303 sequencer was the occasional unintended sounds as the user maneuvered through its complex and pattern-creation. The TB-3 includes automatic pattern generation and random pattern modification functions.
