The page tells us it's a joy to play with because of silicone keys with colour changing backlights. Ok, colours and light are cool I guess, but it seems to evade mentioning if it has velocity or aftertouch at all? Playing silicone keys without that seems really strange to my ears.

It's so ugly I hope it sounds like the greatest bass synth ever for irony's sake. Looks like it might have some nice features for a little 303-alike, though having the audio outputs on the top would be awkward.

Play it from 24:00 onwards. The audio is from camera but seems to sound pretty good anyway.

I like it , like an executive 303 for the mature warehouse degenerate.

OS looks fine to use , it’s cheap, novel , filter doesn’t sound right , but it’s own thing , like the bass bot , which I prefer to a 303 in some instances.
One thing isn’t mentioned in the video is whether the fx are analogue too. Either way the distortion sounded fine , can’t tell about the delay , but it seems a bit quiet.

May pick one up.

I bought a TD3 a year ago, and just purchased a TD3MO friday. So this would be a GAS purchase at best. Other than big lighted pads and a appreciator, it’s not really that needed for me. But best of luck to them.

I was mildly intrigued, then clicked on the link was deluged in a tsunami of advertising overlays. No thanks. If you want to inform and educate about a new product, that's fine, but keep it simple to read.

generally, i guess, if you know the td3 you know this; though there are some differences ( also how this responds to tinkering - more/sounds next week)

This is great info, thanks for writing it up. I had guessed it was PT2399 but never got around to opening mine up to check.
