For the price, there are no valid complaints to get you into 303 land
Tom at Obscure Machines, 02.08.2020
Supposedly, this unit was built off of the work of the Open Music Labs x0x-Heart module, which is open source. That being said the TD-3 sounds the part of a 303. Of course it's not 100% like the original, but nothing will ever sound like the original and the originals all sound different anyways.However, for the price, there are zero valid complaints in regards to sound. The unit sounds the part and does it well on a budget.

Unfortunately, the sequencer also fills the part. It's archaic and cryptic just like the original, which is what led to the downfall of the Roland TB 303. Thankfully, Behringer made an easy to use computer sequencer program that is quick to get good results. Just connect the TD-3 to the computer via USB and you're off to the races. I was able to use the program without any instructions in stark contrast to the onboard sequencer of the TD-3.

Everything else like build quality is good. The machine is light, but that doesn't correlate to quality as it's probably just a single circuit board and no on board power supply. My unit did ship with a UK power plug to the US. A slight inconvenience, but I think Behringer and Thomann could eventually offer country specific plugs worldwide. The distortion circuit does not sound great, but it could be used to get extra sounds out of the machine so a welcome addition.

Overall, I would recommend the TD-3 to anyone that wants the 303 sound. For the price, there's nothing else out there that comes close and also is analog. It sounds better than the Roland TB-03 digital reissue (DOH!) for way less money. The alternate sequencer on the Roland TB-03 is better though. My answer is to get both. The TD-3 for the analog fatness and squelching filter, and the TB-03 to fill a different sonic space that digital does well. They would complement each other well.

Amazing, with a couple of minor teething problems.
7zark7, 04.02.2020
My unit was shipped from the first batch of TD-3's to hit the shelves, so I was expecting some minor niggles. However, so far, so amazing! :)

From an authenticity perspective the TD-3 does a great job at emulating the warm depth and high screams of the original.

If you've owned a TB303 then you'll feel right at home with this.

Yes, it's chassis is made of quite cheap plastic, but it's functional whilst the knobs and pot's (Which are the main touch points for end users) seem of high quality.

The minor gripes I have are are that it didn't ship with a UK PSU so you have to buy an adaptor, and my personal unit suffers with quite a lot of mains interference.? A ground loop isolator took care of most, but it's still quite noisy. I'd be interested to hear from others on this.

Finally the headphone jack wobbles and seems like it may not last that long from first impressions. Time will tell on that one.

With that said, the device does come with a whopping 3 year warranty as standard so any build quality concerns I have with mine can get sorted over time if required.

Having owned and sold a few originals over the years I'm more than happy with this purchase.

Pro's:
Its £130 for a 95% TB303 Clone!
It comes with built in distortion effect! (No need to ship it to Australia for a Devilfish Modification). ;)
Its £130 for a 95% TB303 Clone!

Cons:
UK PSU not supplied. :(
Possible shielding issues on PSU creating noise? (can others please comment)
Possible weak connectors on the faceplate. (time will tell)


For the money the TD-3 is a no brainer and on the whole I'm having a blast replicating my Rebirth set up of the 90's with actual analogue hardware. A dream come true. Thanks Behringer! Top marks for keeping the vintage analogue revival going.

PS: I ordered a 2nd yellow one. Not Sorry. :)

A cheap weird synth
ujuj, 02.11.2020
The TD-3 is a quite faithful clone, and that can be a bit underwhelming on some points:
- The 303 is not a very polyvalent synth. It is a great sound and I really like what it can add to a track, but keep in mind that it is not a very versatile synth sound-wise.

- You can't automate parameter changes via MIDI.

These are not drawbacks of the TD-3 itself, but of the original 303 aswell. The sound is faithful ,the signal is clean, and the sequencer is quirky as hell :)!

The hardware itself is definitely cheap: While the potentiometers have a fine feel overall, the plastic enclosure feels really light and hollow. It is not a problem for me as the unit will stand in a homestudio, but keep that in mind if you aim to travel and do live sets all around the world.

Fine jazz machine
Bob Breeks, 18.03.2020
Been waiting a long time to replace the double bass player in my cocktail jazz combo, the wait is over. Smooth Charlie Mingus lines aplenty, free form slides and accents, endless pattern chaining to fit in to any Sun Ra exposition that the audience throws at you in request time. Accurate recreations of custom double basses are possible.The snappy resonance of Giovanni Paolo Maggini instruments is easily moddled, but the rich harmonics of a good Giovanni Battista Rogeri bass are sadly lacking, I feel Behringers engineers have rushed this opportunity. Having said that it's hard to tell the difference between the TD-3 and my venerable 1730 Matteo Gorfriller, so top marks there. I do wish a varnish spruce version was an option, still one can hardly blame the maker for wanting to cash in on the current Acid House boom.
So to sum up: well done Behringer. 10/10.
