Roland have added the TB-303 – the classic sound of the 'acid' bassline – to their subscription service Roland Cloud. The virtual re-creation of the famous synth features the same layout and interface of the hardware version, using Roland's ACB (analogue circuit behaviour) technology to generate the sounds, similar to the plugin versions of the Juno-106, Jupiter-8 and others from their Legendary Series.
As well as the classic acid sound, Roland have added some new features including five different play modes for the sequencer, including an expanded sequencer view, extra patch memory and some new FX options such as 'Drive' and 'Delay'.
Roland Cloud costs £18.50 a month – check their full catalogue here. If you're still on the hunt for hardware, check Cinthie's favourite affordable Roland drum machine in our recent Studio Bargain feature.
