Rebirth RB-338 Kinda/Sorta Emulator

Spent some time this AM doing my best to remember how that software got me hooked on those sounds back in '98 or '99. I found an 808 sample pack that sounds pretty darn close to the software’s 808 sounds, and I spent some time trying out different waveforms until I got close enough to the software’s sound. Has a 303 Square and a 303 Saw.

Have fun!

Look not so bad

Seem to be a “portable” VSTI…I continue to think that Renoise files could pack portable VSTs into them

But would be playable on Windows uniquely😅

or on Linux via Wine

Yeah, that’s a cool VST. I’m on a Mac and having fun with stock Renoise instruments/effects/Tools. I don’t use plugins in my tracks.


I sampled much of the 303 part of the RB-338 back in the day, can share the samples.
Just dropped the .wav files into a .xrns for easy upload, attached below:

I don’t remember if we can send notes via a midi keyboard

303 original sequencing is a pain
