Perhaps one of the most coveted TB-303 mods in the history of the synth. Almost impossible to find on eBay (units have been sold for over a grand) and, to make matters more confusing, there is another Acidlab synth company that has a similar product but is not the same. Also, this picture: Venetian Snares¬†using one of these mods (although he’s got colored knobs ’cause he’s cooler than most of us). So, all that adds up to an MGD wishlist item.

Here are some details about the mod found at Matrixsynth (with more information at Synthfind):

Mod details:

  • The inputs are q- accent- gate- slide- vcf- vcf cut off-vca-cv these are for use with a midi-cv converter, analog synth or tb-303.
  • The outputs are eg- accent- slide- square- saw- vcf these could be patched to an external filter or effects unit or tb-303.

Toggle switches:

  • Accent – up normal, down accents on all notes
  • Slide – up normal, down slide on all notes
  • Waveform modulation – saw, square
  • Resonance – up normal, down rear vcf input.

Potentiometers:

  • Decay – from off to standerd
  • Resonance – adds q level
  • X-mod – modulation level
  • Overdrive – volume control of vco to filter
  • Pots come with 303 type knobs to retain original look.
  • LEDs: three new LED show programming accent, slide, bend.

Acidlab kit comes with faceplate overlay: 4 knobs, 4 pots, 4 switches, 3 LEDs, 8 inputs, 6 outputs, color coded instructions with wires- all resistors, caps, diodes, pot mounts and rear sticker.

Yummy.
