Intellijel Metropolis meets 303

 The Metropolis Sequencer is uber cool. Inspired by the Ryk M-185 (a Roland System 100m sequencer)
Each stage has slides and a pulse count in the range 1-8. It should provide very interesting results.

The Luna Modular VC 303 bass synth is according to the manufacturer (Somatic Circuits) an exact clone
of the TB 303 minus the sequencer.
I don't think it sounds exactly like a 303 (due probably to the same rare componentry issues x0xb0x and other 303 cloners owners face), but I still reckon it sounds great, especially the filter. It's very flexible and anyway, do we really want another 303 clone??? I think it's better if each manufacturer finds a way to add their own new flavours to that acid bass line we all love.

The nice thing about the VC 303 is that you can plug external oscillators in or use a different filter.

The Doepfer A-143-2 Quad ADSR is a useful addition for the metropolis, as is a LFO (Doepfer A-145)

Paired with the Intellijel Metropolis there are so many possibilities.
