The Behringer TD3-SR Analog Bass Line Synth features VCO, VCF, 16-step sequencer, distortion effects and 16-voice poly chain.
Only produced from 1981 to 1984, the Roland TB-303 was a tremendous commercial flop as a replacement for the bass guitar, however it soon found its place as one of the most-loved synthesizers for what became known as Electronic Dance Music (EDM). An ultra-affordable and faithful homage to the iconic synthesizer that spawned house music, plus an all-new Distortion circuit, the Behringer TD3-SR Analog Bass Line Synth lets you conjure up virtually any sound with incredible finesse and ease. With its pure analog signal path, 16-step Sequencer and authentic VCO, VCF and VCA filters, it’s sure to become one of your favorite synthesizers.
Pure Analog Signal Path
Great care has been taken in engineering the Behringer TD3-SR Analog Bass Line Synth, including the true to the original VCO, VCF and VCA designs and pure analog circuitry with matched transistors. This highly-focused attention to detail is what gives its ultra-flexible sound shaping capability, which covers everything from super-fat bass and lead tones to stunning effects – all the way out to the otherworldly sounds of your imagination.
Rock Right Out of the Box!
Your Behringer TD3-SR Analog Bass Line Synth comes ready to rock, thanks to its default signal routing that doesn’t require lifting a single patch cable to instantly create amazing sounds. The highly-intuitive layout lets you easily tap into the inspired sounds of 1980s and ’90s progressive rock, wave, EDM and synth-pop music tracks that made rock and roll history – or to design incredibly fat and original sounds that will make you a legend in your own right!
The very heart of the Behringer TD3-SR Analog Bass Line Synth’s sound is its versatile 24 dB/octave filter, which lets you freely experiment with the low-pass Cutoff frequency and Resonance settings to dial in the perfect sound.
The Behringer TD3-SR Analog Bass Line Synth’s authentic Voltage Controlled Oscillator (VCO) with transistor wave-shaping circuitry is ultra-easy to use and provides your choice of reverse-sawtooth or pulse waveforms for the ultimate in sound creation.
The Behringer TD3-SR Analog Bass Line Synth’s onboard sequencer with 7 tracks allows you to program up to 16 steps of notes and rests and save them as a Pattern. You can record, save and recall up to 250 patterns, all of which can be stored in the 4 Groups. Your sequences can be played either in Keyboard mode, where you create and store the pattern, or Step mode which allows you to interact while composing a pattern.
Kick it Into Distortion!
We saved one of the most exciting features for the last stage in the all-analog signal path – Distortion! When you want to add even more power to your Behringer TD3-SR Analog Bass Line Synth, just flip the Distortion On/Off switch and dial in the perfect amount of Drive to push the “envelope” to the max. The crowd won’t know what hit ‘em!
16-Note Poly Chain Ready
While it is a monophonic instrument (one note at a time), the Behringer TD3-SR Analog Bass Line Synth’s 16-note Poly Chain function lets you combine multiple synthesizers for up to 16-voice polyphony – plus provides vastly improved reliability and stability over its 1970s and ’80s predecessors.
Controls & Connectivity
For those who want the numbers, the Behringer TD3-SR Analog Bass Line Synth has 11 controls and 28 switches to give you direct and real-time access to all important parameters, all laid out in a highly-intuitive format that puts the joy back into your music creation. And you can expand its tone-sculpting capabilities beyond your wildest dreams by utilizing the multi-I/O patchbay to connect external devices!
