Just some random thoughts:
What i see on the original b0x is, when you hit chain it randomizes the notes. But it does that in a completly random way.
It would be much more intresting and helpful to have it randomize on a scale. Like pentatonic and so on...
Chain+1 = Pure random
Chain+2 = Random in pentatonic scale
Chain+3 = Random in major scale
Chain+3 = Random in minor scale
Chain+C# = Random accents and slide only
Excellent suggestion Radar! this would make the Randomize function actually useable in real-life!! i hope sokkos does this one...
also Sokkos do not listen to the minority that have used a TB-303 and their brain just works a certain way and they want the XOXbox to work/be programmed the same way, the TB303 is a right-pain-in-the-ass to get anything useful from and the XOXbox is a joy. Some people just cant live with an improvement, they need to get over it and realise that sometimes just because it is not identical does not mean it is worse, it may actually be better. Of course, the sound of the oscillators and filter of the 303 is killer and needs to be matched identically and not changed/improved (thats the whole idea of the XOXBox) but the sequencer programming was never something 303 users raved about.
what has always amazed me is what an incredible happy-little-accident the TB303 was when they made it. If it was meant to replicate a bass player for live gigs, then what a complete failure and over-engineered box (resonance on a live bass?) it was to meet that objective. damn im surprised Roland didnt fire the product development team over it honestly.
something that hasnt been addressed enough in the XOXbox design tho is how different many 303 owners describe their 303 sounding when using batteries to using power. this difference hasnt been addressed properly in the XOXBox design and really needs to be. ive seen it mentioned and some mods but it really should be incorporated into the XOXbox circuit design, with a "power / battery" mode switch...
