    Description
    PHILOSOPHY

    The Revolution is our new concept synthesizer designed to illustrate loop-based music in a much more natural way than has been provided in the past with traditional instruments. Think about it. The basis of music is time. Time is nothing more than our perception of the heavenly bodies spinning through their celestial orbits. From ancient sundials to modern analog clocks time has been represented as the circle, a cycle which never ends, illustrating the infinite within a finite amount of space.

    So why not use this same knowledge to represent music? Consider the sine wave, which is the fundamental tone in all sound. It’s shape circular. Consider the cyclic patterns of the rhythm, melody, and harmony, and how one could best represent the infinite possibilities of music within a finite amount of space, and you will begin to see the importance of this circular theme throughout music.

    May the Revolution inspire you!

    The Revolution is a true monophonic analog synthesizer, which includes analog and DSP effects, along with a programmable digital sequencer section and multiple interfacing features.

    We’ve gone to great lengths to ensure that the Revolution is fully capable of the most accurate reproduction of the original TB303’s sound, and in many ways surpasses its signature liquid tones and capabilities.

    The step-based sequencer provides 256 stored patterns which users can create and edit in real-time while the unit plays. Patterns may be selected and played in any order live, or prearranged into one of the 16 song locations stored in memory. In addition, the Revolution provides our new Remix feature which provides 256 variations for every pattern and song, for more than 65,000 possible patterns right out of box.

    The Revolution can be used to play other MIDI sound modules and CV/Gate type synthesizers, sync the playback with other MIDI sequencers, or be played live with a MIDI keyboard. This unit can also act as a MIDI to CV/Gate converter, and a MIDI to Din Sync converter, as well as process external audio.
