New price: £ 149 (MK-1) - £ 249 (MK-2) - 400dm | S/H price: ?? never seen one..
MAM MB33The MAM MB-33 comes in two models.... Both 1U rackmounting, the standard model recieves midi note data, and the Mk-2 model has controller send/recieve added for realtime control of all the pots, plus distortion control.....It's a reasonably close 303 clone, pretty much as good as any clone on the market....
The advertising blurb says that the MB33 has been designed to have to closest sound possible to the original TB303.... well there ya go...... it's as i said as close as any of the clones, none of which really get there, but in most situations, the better clones are almost indistinguishable from a real 303 depending on the programme material once it's in the mix..... anyway... honestly, no two real 303's sound the same either.... there can be quite alot of variation between different units..... usually not that much, but there can be a difference....
anyhow.... Not alot to say.... standard 303 controls are duplicated..... with the addition of a fader pot to fade between saw & square wave, the same as on the FAT Freebass unit.... it's quite a good feature that......Incidently, there is some talk that the FAT unit is actually a Mb unit... dunno...they do sound close... both excellent value for money...... but anyway, accent is switched in via midi velocity control over 120, and the slide is automatic when you play legato mode......here's the spec's....
|VCO||Analogue VCO with sawtooth and square waveforms|
|FILTER||Analogue 24bB filter with variable resonance.|
|ENV||Envelope has variable decay and is used to modulate the filter cut-off. There is a separate preset envelope for the VCA (as with the TB303).|
|ACCENT||Notes will be accented when a velocity level over 120 is played|
The back of the unit has audio out, midi in & out, and also an audio input to process external audio signals..... there is also some dip switches to set the midi channel..... As i said..... there is a second more expensive model, which add's full midi control for all the control knobs, plus distortion control.......check out the small RA file of the unit......
