Nothing sounds quite like an 808, but nothing sounds quite like a 303 either. Roland TB-303 created the sound that became the foundation for acid house, which became the one of the pillars for electronic music in the 90s, which turned into a thing called EDM. But don’t blame the 303 for that.
Lest you think we at Adafruit don’t know our sequencer from our pot knob, recall that Ladyada’s legendary x0xb0x is a full reproduction of the original Roland 303 that can be programmed just like the original.
And here’s a documentary on the TB-303, just in case you need one:
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
