I think it was nearly 5 years ago when I originally built my Oakley Sound Systems TM3030 – his take on the TB-303 minus the sequencer. For many years it’s been used with the controls on a ‘temporary’ bit of perspex bolted to the PCB.
While the sound of the unit is close to the 303, it’s not a 303 – not that that bothers me. Because of this I decided to max it out with modifications. Some the classic mods to be found on the internet and some of my own design.
A few friends have asked for a demo of how it sounds so I shot this quick video for anyone daring enough to subject themselves to 8 minutes of the same pattern with a bit of knob twiddling!
Just for the sake of it here’s a series of photo’s charting the finishing off of this build.
A lot of these have been finished for quite a while but thought I’d take some pictures while my little sequencing case is unpatched. Includes both of my switch prototypes as well as one of my CGS/Serge sequencer builds.
So, I was telling a friend that while working on something in my studio I’d been playing with putting my TR-707 drum machine through the Flights of Harmony Plague Bearer. As he was curious to how it sounded I made this little video.
The Plague Bearer is from the DIY run that Flight ran through the Muffwiggler site. I ordered and built 2 for enhanced sound mutilation and I’m still not sure I don’t need 4!!!
