How to Program a Roland TB-303 #MusicMonday

Here’s a tutorial on programing the Roland TB-303 from David Haberfeld via SYNTHOPIA

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.

The Roland 303 makes up the bulk of cuts like Josh Wink’s Higher States of Consciousness, a track from the olds that can still set a dancefloor on metaphorical fire.

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:


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
