The almighty Bassline that is probably one of the most used electronic instruments
ever, at least in dance music. I used this and still use it a lot. All my biggest tracks
had at least one 303 in it, Amphetamine, Sync In, Tanzmaschine, aso.
The music world would look very different without this little quirky box from
Japan, that originally did not sell well and was only getting astronomically high
prices in the aftermarket from 1985 to today.
