Sometimes, you just have to stop and take stock of how far we’ve come. Nearly 20 years ago, Propellerhead Software released their software emulation of the legendary Roland TB-303, TR-808 and TR-909, called ReBirth. The software was a precursor to their Desktop Audio Workstation, Reason, and allowed a generation of bedroom producers to create the distinctive sounds of Acid House music, the acid squelch Now, some intrepid soul as a working version of the 303 and 909 in a browser.

Think about that. This is the future, man.

The app is a bit rough around the edges, and as the developer says on the page is “A work in progress web audio tool”, but the basic functions are all there, and with the “Randomize” [sic] function you’re ready to squelch your little heart out. Try it out. Waste some of your Friday afternoon. You deserve it, champ!

Commenting Etiquette

Welcome to DJWORX. It’s the most engaged community around, and we have a handful of house rules to keep it that way:
  • • Be polite and constructive.
  • • Treat others as you would expect to be treated. So please disengage keyboard warrior mode before hammering in a full caps rant.
  • • Stay on topic.
  • • Consider your tone of voice. Telling someone that they’re wrong comes across better as “I don’t agree and here’s why”.
  • • No links to copyrighted or offensive material.
Life is way too short to waste time policing comments. So break the rules and you’re out. It’s just the internet, and  the DJWORX community is way more important than catering to the fragile egos of ranting trolls. I trust I have been crystal clear.
