ACID
Spiros Lazarides, 06.11.2019
I use TB-03 to my home studio
it sounds definetly different from tb-3
the sound is come very close to tb-303
i love the idea of fx distortion and delay
it is portable works with 4 batteries also
has a small speaker but you can also listen from the headphones so it is good idea to get also a bag
the sound and the construction quality is good.
dont forget to buy also a mono mini jack cable for your mixer!!

Sounds good, works like a charm
JP Formosa, 19.06.2019
Sounds like it should, although I have no other source to compare it to, it just sounds good. YOu will spend countless hours making acid and simply having a blast with this machine and at the price its a no-brainer. The on-board effects and midi implementation are also welcome.

I don't like the micro USB power and would have preferred a DC adapter in order to reduce humming but this also means that the device can be powered using a power bank which makes it very portable.

The build quality of the device is also great however I am a bit weary about the knobs which are a bit small and have some play however they are not too bad. Considering the price this is an excellent piece of kit.

I love it!
Forkboy 1985, 16.11.2018
Nice crystal clean sound (I don't care if it's not analog). Great FX section (3 overdrives, digital delay, tape echo, reverb). Extremely simple sequencer workflow. Build quality is great (Virus B is top of my rating here). Top row encoders are the only disappointment, hard to grip because of their chisel tip shape.
