Hi, I have live lite and would like to get some good 808, 909 and 303 sounds to use. Does any one have any packs, or know where I could download some packs with those sounds?

Thanks very much!

Sean

The D16 Group 808, 909, and 303 emulators are quite good. The 303 one even comes with a cool distortion effect.

Some sample packs have nice processed sounds though, which can save some time.

The original had two distinctive distortion modes, so all emulators should copy those, I assume this is an extra one?
While I've never used an original 303, Phoscyon's seems quite a bit more tweakable:

They also offer an expanded version as a separate plugin (Devastor).

distinctive distortion modes in a original TB 303 :?:

I always use a stomp box or my hardware mixer for the distortion effect. :mrgreen:

Interesting, you seem to have discovered an until now unknown, prototype super 303.
The plain vanilla un-distorted TB303 should become near worthless now, and then I might able to afford one.

Ugh, I hate those "should have bought it" feelings for certain pieces of gear. They're so much worse than the "why did I buy that?" feeling. Mine was my first guitar amp purchase. Really liked this special edition tweed 60-watt Marshall head/cab that was loaded with EL-34s and 4x10 speakers. Got talked into a JCM900 w/1960AV cab instead. Still a nice amp/cab, but I can't even find any info on that tweed Marshall anywhere on the internet now!
