On one hand, I want to have the 303 to have that acid sound and have a bass line for when my synth is doing two leads, but I also don't want it because it's so cliche and I fear that I wouldn't be able to make anything cool sounding with it. Yet on the other hand, I want a 909 because I want to have a drum machine that has that dance/house feel and is MIDI/DIN capable. Can anyone provide some good advise on what to do?
I would get the 909 first , you will get more milage from a drum machine in other music than you will with a 303.
If you want to save a few quid get a vermona DRM1 MK3 - it has to be the MK3 version though as they have the new special kick synth part. I did some side by side tests and could make an exact 909 kick sound and also with a bit of work, got quite a few 808 sounds to about 90%.
I'll try and post an mp3 of some loops if you want to hear it do the 909/808 emulations.
That would be great, thanks!
