Vintage vs. Boutique. The internet can’t get enough of the debate what’s better. In its boutique series Roland has recreated its iconic elctronic music instruments from the eighties. Could these digital recreations hold up against the rare, analogue and, because of that, extremely expensive original units?
Now you can enjoy some A/B testing between the legendary bass synthesizer TB-303 from 1982 and the TB-03, its digitally modeled boutique reincarnation from today. The answers are in the description of the video on YouTube.
Nate Harrison made a very nice documentary about the history of the original TB-303 bass synthesizer and its huge influence on today dance music.
