Back to the 80s!

The Behringer TD-3-BK is the black version of this much-loved bass line synthesiser, a classic reference for any synth connoisseur. Whether in prog rock, new wave, EDM or synth pop, a host of legendary acid sounds that will stand the test of time, have, and still are, being created on the TD-3-series – and its pure analog signal path! The sawtooth and square waveform oscillators form the basis of powerful and super-fat bass lines, as well as gritty leads. Added distortion, one among many effects included in the TD-3-BK, will dirty that sound even further. The TD-3-BK includes both MIDI and USB ports. Should you prefer a software rather than a hardware interface, the Synth Tool application provided is intuitive and practical – while, of course, machine-programming remains fully operable. The TD-3 series is available in an array of different colours.

Totally flexible programming, plus extras!

The TD-3 series patterns are organised into four groups, each of them divided in 2 sections, A and B. The keyboard acts as a shortcut to all the different patterns, each can then be individually selected and edited. In order to program each section, ‘write mode’ must be selected in the central control area, and then the pitch and time value of each key assigned. The ‘step’ button defines the number of steps in each pattern, which can go up to 16. Longer sequences can be created by playing patterns sequentially or chaining them in track mode which allows patterns to be played in any order. A total of 64 patterns can be stored in the TD-3-BK. A random pattern generator is also included, which can be a great help in simplifying and helping with the design of new patterns. To enable random generation the ’Start’, ‘Stop’ and ‘Clear’ keys must all be pressed simultaneously.

A portable “back to the future”

At 663 g, the Behringer TD-3-BK is easy to handle and of course fits more or less anywhere. Behringer's recreation of the original user interface allows the exact same workflow that spawned so many great bass lines and leads during the 80s. The distortion section can be added at will, in easily controlled increments. The ’ Tone Control’ function, which remains neutral in middle position, is useful for either ‘muffling’ or making bass lines more aggressive. The TD-3-BK can be clocked to any other synthesizer via the sync-in input. In addition, the CV-out (controlled voltage gate out) can be used to trigger external synthesizers.

About Behringer

The company, which was founded in Germany by Uli Behringer and which now produces their items in China, has been known for affordable and great value equipment since their very first product, the Studio Exciter F. An array of mixing consoles (such as the Eurodesk MX8000), signal processors - and later sound amplification and monitoring equipment – has made it possible for countless musicians to fit out their home studios, practice rooms or mobile PAs, within a budget limit that was previously unthinkable. The acquisition of other companies, among others Midas, Klark Teknik and TC Electronic, meant that new product groups were added - and also resulted in the technical know-how of these companies being incorporated into product development. The still young synthesizer division of Behringer continues the philosophy of the firm, which is to offer truly affordable classics with outstanding features.

Simple software programming

The provided Synth Tool allows the user to immediately access any preconfigured TD-3-BK pattern via USB. From there, patterns can easily be imported from the machine into the computer, modified at will, and then sent back to the TD-3-BK. This is done via the ‘Recall’ function. Inside the editor, note values can be changed via drag-and-drop operations, as can be the total length of the pattern. The ‘Store’ function in the Synth Tool allows patterns to be easily stored back into the TD-3-BK. Accents can also be programmed, by right-clicking on the desired notes. The value of each accent can be adjusted via the corresponding slider on the TD-3-BK. The Synth Tool software includes further control options, such as MIDI routing, PolyChaining and calibration of the TD-3 BU.

everyone needs a 303
TZTH, 09.04.2021
To be honest - the design of the 303 is very limited and the sequencer very hard to use. But I can not image any other analog synth that is that recognisable once the slides are empoyed. From a build and feature perspective I think 99.- is what it actually should cost.
Triggered via Midi from a DAW you'll get accents and slides as well, furthermore you can trigger via CV other synths without the headache of the internal sequencer. I bought it to get those slide sounds from my other synths (korg arp odyssey, minibrute, modular).

An essential bit of equipment
Dylan L, 11.12.2020
Does exactly what it is supposed to do,, its an acid box,, after reading online reviews and watching hundreds of tutorials and demo videos obsessively for weeks I found that the sequencer wasn't as difficult to use as I thought it would be.
Behringer should supply a USB cable with it ..
Other than that it's awesome..

Great for 135 euro but could be better
Arcadia, 31.08.2020
Does it sound good? Absolutely. Does it do what an original 303 can do? Yes. But unfortunately Behringer also chose to repeat the poor build quality of the original. The buttons are very flaky and I doubt will continue to trigger properly over time. I've also read people saying the silver paint on the buttons chips off and I don't doubt it. The overdrive is just "OK" and I really miss having a delay effect. Would have paid more if Behringer could have delivered better quality overall. Missed opportunity IMO.

Finally the legendary sound for a dump price

I never had the original unit always wanted one. Now I have this clone and it's awesome. Will buy another one. And another one. Collect all colors and jam the acid.
