Roland TB-303 vs System 100

303 vs System100 by AnalogSweden
Just did this one for fun since I’ve reflected on the sound from the system 100 as quite close to the TB-303. TB-303 on the left, System 100 on the right.  Mono users… sorry ;) Cv/gate out from 303. No accent used. I think the resonance is not comparable in the higher settings, where the 303 is really musical and the system 100 is harder and more squealing, but int the lower settings they come really close. There was more punch and low end from the System 100, and quite many times I reached for the hi-pass filter on the system 100 to make it more compareable to the 303.

System 100 is definetly not a substitute for a 303, but rather a very nice machine that can sound really acid as well :)

Background
We at Analog Sweden have had a few enquiries about CS70m retrofits, so we got in touch with Kenton to investigate the possibilites for a new production run. Kenton wanted to have a group order to start the production, and here we go.
Analog Sweden is a studio and repair workshop in Helsingborg, Sweden. You can see what we do at www.analogsweden.com/blog

If in doubt, you can verify our claims if you get in touch with Kenton.

Soundcraft Series 8000 in the studio

soundcraft80001

One of the final pieces of the studio puzzle is about to be installed! Yesterday we went to pick up a Soundcraft Series 8000 console from the friendly staff at Musikbörsen in Jönköping. The console was Soundcrafts top-of-the-line in the mid-eighties, and you can really feel the quality when using the faders and controls, so now we will have 32 channels with 8 auxes, 8 groups and pure sweetness. It was a real b*** to move, but now it’s in the studio. After the unloading we had the pleasure to go to the dump and throw away the case, which was just in need of a final resting place.

We’re modifying the present work table (read, smashing it to pieces) and rebuilding the monitor stand section to accomodate to the height of the metering bridge. Paul is removing all the channel strips for a checkup, and then it’s some additional patchbay work to be done. Good thing we have a bunch of extra multicables collecting dust! More info coming when it’s actually installed.
