We also use the TAL 101 and the D16 Phoscyon; both of them are 303 emulations. From what I've read, these aren't the most realistic 303 machines out there, but that's not a problem for us because we aren't too interested in the genuine 'acid sound' – I think you hear much more of that coming from the UK at the moment.more
I'm fortunate to have 2 real SH-101s in a drawer. Picked them up before prices got stupid... but they're in a drawer and not getting regular use, because of this lovingly-crafted plugin. If I wanted to use an SH-101 as my go-to bass synth, I'd probably use the real units or a modern analog clone (Intellijel Atlantis, Behringer knock-off, etc), as IMHO one can still milk a tiny bit more bottom and bounce out of the real deal (just a TINY bit, well within the margin of imaginary mojo), but if you just want to dial in some wonky, squelchy, 101-style riffs or melodies, this plugin will (unlike the real deal) actually stay in tune, and gives me all that I seek. This plugin's behavior at high resonance/self-oscillation is so commendable and true-to-life.
