Roland Aira TB-3
The Roland TB-3 updates Roland’s classic TB-303 in a modern context, complete with a pressure sensitive touchpad. The unit incorporates Roland’s groundbreaking Analog Circuit Behavior Technology to recreate the circuit behavior of the original TB-303. This includes faithful replication of the original’s sawtooth and square wave oscillators, and the original’s famous low-pass filter.
The TB-3 has been constructed with ease of use in mind, and features an intuitive step entry process where users can program and play on-the-fly with the unit’s touchpad. The pressure sensitive, illuminated touchpad allows for expressive control over dozens of parameters, including pitch, volume, and filter settings.
