3-oh-3 at a bargain
digimago, 13.05.2020
Great little bass synth for those on a budget. I've been playing with this little machine ever since it arrived on my door step on March 3rd (yeah...thanks to Thomann for the amazing shipping schedule).

Even though I'm having a hard time musically to get it to fit into anything worth recording, it still is a load of fun and that is exactly why it is a keeper. It is so rewarding to just spam some notes into the pitch mode, set some timing and let it become the addictive sound of acid house together with my RD-8 and Crave.

The only downside I've so far determined is the speed with which the buttons start to lose their silvery paint job. This really should be a focus area for Uli's gang to up the quality of the product.

Close But No Cigar
Ben Sudo, 05.03.2020
What can you say for that fantastic price and the added features!
Still.. a rave rview is not always 5 stars.

Starting with the sound... I plugged it into a pair of large amplified computer speakers, routing it - and a TB-303 - through separate but equal tracks on a DAW. My wife called the sound faat when I asked her how do you like it? Then I switched on the TB-303, not the same settings and pattern because this wasn't a pre-planned test and she called the saound "3-D and organic". This is from someone who is not into Acid and is not a synth head in any way. The TD3 sounds great but a little less so when a TB-303 is right next to it. Also the distortion is a bit disappointing, especially in the highs where it loses volume fast.

But hey, can I really complain when this also has USB MIDI, and pattern ediiting?! I do wish it aIso had CV and GATE IN and maybe a few more patch points. In which case I'd happily pay a bit more. Imagine patching a few of these together with a few Craves.. or a Neutron.. SICK!

What is it like
Dj M-Zone, 21.12.2019
We're all wondering what the td3 is like, it Is, and does sound exactly like the tb303 just caution Thomann forgot the UK adaptor opps, there is no manual or USB lead it's cheap because of this. It's cheaply made too, very light plastic. but functions as it should & does look great

The added distortion routes the output direct not mixed and drops the gain also had a DC Hum I'd use a Pedal still or fx gear.

I've canceled my 2nd unit to keep my Roland tb3 more suited duet.
Patterns are OK to shit lol
Have to use USB to run the editor
Programming is the same as 303. but has more slots to store patterns & tracks.
Great with a DAW writing a loop
Accents by velocity slide by legato
Pitch by key.

Have not tried controller data over midi yet to work filter etc... Video to come..

For the money excellent value authentic sound and looks.

Well within everyone's budget.
You're not wasting money buying it. It's almost throw away money in gear terms. Expect an influx of aceeed in the next few months lol..

Lots of squelch bass enjoy....
Three colours to choose got mine from Thomann who provide extra warranty and pickup if faulty on most goods.

Finally.. Looking forward for more..

Pros:
- Clone - sound, interesting sequencer, original look
- Upgrades - distortion, some (limited) CV i/o
- Analogue + community around 303 clones = hackable for more features.
- Price

Cons:
- Clone - funny "oversized" box, original silver look looks dull, no battery powered, little speaker would be also nice ("standard" volca series advantages)
- Without more i/o, quite a one trick pony, but everybody knows that. I hope Behringer will convert it to eurorack with extensive i/o.

For its advantages, it's a must for every hardware music maker lover, at least for it's historical and workflow value.

Nice bit of kit for the money
Headie, 07.01.2020
Get the obvious out of the way. It’s a clone of the legendary TB-303 and for the price probably best on the market. Build-wise it’s pretty cheap feeling and being a new gadget it’ll take a bit breaking in the reso/cutoff knobs but that’s the joy of having one. It’s probably the cheapest way to get into creating squelchy acid bassfarts. As an acid box and for the price it’s a bit of a no-brainer. The only real negatives is the feel of it as it feels like a toy. Also why didn’t Behringer bring out the black one first instead of blue and red?. I probably would’ve probably picked up a black 1 to go with the silver

It’s not going to replace any of my other gear, but I am happy to have one alongside my other clones. If you’re in the market for something that sounds good and looks the part and analog is a must at an affordable price I would recommend this. If you don’t care about that analog vs digital thing and you’re just getting into hardware I would probably pick up a TB-3. It might not be a pure acid box like the TD-3, but imo it gives more options than the regular saw/square

Pros

Analog, sounds awesome, looks authentic, more feature rich than the original TB-303, price

Cons

Feels very plastic, no use of batteries, no built in speaker.

All in all if you have any other clones this makes a perfect partner and at this price Behringer are on to a winner :)

Superfun and affordable revival of history
Justin-Jay, 24.04.2020
Even if you don't use it in everyday occasions still get it because it's an important piece of history. I still struggle to learn how sequencer work but hey - I still have time. And sound is just great. The box itself feels a bit cheap plastic tho.

superb value for money!
They'reWatchingYou, 12.01.2020
Sounds ace, build ok and the sequencer COULD be more user friendly. However, highly recommended as it sounds amazing.
