808 Beats And 303 Bass In Your Browser #MusicMonday
In-browser beat making tools are available far and wide, but now Design Museum has one that make available the classic sounds of the TR-808 and the TB-303. Here’s more from Sonic State:
There are a number of in-browser beat making tools, many of them replicating classic hardware. Here we have the seminal combination of the TR-808 and TB-303 available to play and program alongside each other. It’s a collaboration with the Design Museum which hosted an Electronic exhibition late last year – and Yuri Suzuki.
Both are simple to sequence, with the TB-303 being more notably accessible than the original machine, with a step sequencer and random feature – and the 808 offering an AI Variation mode. Alternative options for browser beat making come from the acid machine and the io808 while the HTML909 appears to have disappeared.

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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
