Bass Bot TT-303 MK2 Analog Synthesizer

Cyclone Analogic Bass Bot TT-303 MK2 Analog Synthesizer

As its name attests, the Cyclone Analogic Bass Bot TT-303 MK2 is a reproduction of the legendary Roland TB-303 analog monophonic synthesizer. It features the same internal circuitry and functionality as its predecessor, albeit utilizing modern technology and methodology. The synthesizer’s sequencer uses the same kind of step-entry programming present on the original, and features 224 user-editable patterns in addition to an equal amount of non-editable patterns.

Additionally, the unit allows users to store songs in banks of 7 to an internal flash memory, meaning the data will be stored even after the unit is powered down. Despite being a recreation of the TB-303, the TT-303 MK2 boasts some notable upgrades. There’s a useful tap input mode that allows for on-the-fly programming, and the unit’s MIDI implementation has been greatly expanded.

BassBot TT-303 Videos


Bass Bot TT-303 Demo from Perfect Circuit Audio on Vimeo.

In this video we pair the Roland TR-8 drum computer with Roland TB-303 clone the Cyclone Bassbot TT-303. With the jacking drum sounds of the TR-707 loaded into the TR-8, and spiny accented patterns programmed into the TT-303 we tap effortlessly into the timelessly weird sound of Acid House. On the TT-303, simple 'Cut Off Freq', 'Res' and 'Env Mod' knob tweaks turn thick basslines into squelchy liquid leads. The BassBot is sent through an Eventide Space for some ambience and texture play which helps add fresh dimension into a classic sound.

Bass Bot TT-303 and Roland TR-808 jam from Perfect Circuit Audio on Vimeo.

In this video we jam classic sounds with old and new technology. The foundation is set with beats from the world's most beloved drum machine, the Roland TR-808. To accompany the solid 808 grooves, we employ another classic Roland sound, but instead of the vintage piece we see how the Cyclone TT-303 Bass Bot holds up to its legacy. The result is pure Acid House fun! Since the TT-303 is equipped with midi and the TR-808 uses din sync, we used the Roland SBX-1 to sync the two machines. To add a little bit of rhythmic flavor, we sync'd up a Roland CR-78 with the 'Bend' and 'Aux' outputs. To add a bit of depth and texture we ran the CR-78 through a OTO BAM reverb unit, bringing the slinky programmed rhythms in and out of focus.
