RUBBERDUCK-sounds good, but: I found,that the exported audio wav-file, is never in the right tempo determinated in rubberduck, according to other sound-creation applications and players.

Really right now I listen my first song with "RUBBERDUCK" ,but I don't like it.The sound are great .The filters so on are better ,but about me this software is not a studio for acid , goa and psy ,but you can take great sounds and melodies like wave files for your productions. TRY FOR GOA REALLY GOOD.

Rubberduck is probably the most overlooked 303 TB emulators i've ever used. I've played with rebirth, and thought that it was a nice but fell short of attempt to create acid lines on the computer. The difference with rebirth is that you can have two lines going at once, and of course a thicker, fuller sound.

Personally, I think that Rubberduck has a much more diverse, albeit monophonic sound. The different waveforms allow you flexibility of sound, pitch, filter, resonance, and there really is nothing like having distortion right there handy as well, where you can mix it with the sound before you filter it. I've gotten an amazing array of sounds from this program, ranging from low subtle basses, to trumpet and digital string sounding screaches. The center area allows one to cross, say, a square wave with a sine wave, and if you turn the decay up and add some echo to it, hello eerie intro. And call me shallow, but I really do like programs like rubberduck that have some nice graphics or dope coloring to them, they're not so institutional, and I have so much more fun with user-friendly and aesthetically pleasing interfaces.

Whenever I get a bassline idea in my head, I usually turn rubberduck on to try and get it from my head out the speakers before it's forgotten, because rubberduck is so simple to use. From there I'll mess around with it to see which wavefrom and filter settings would sound the best with it, so that I can use that information in the future. I have even created songs using rubberduck tracks for the majority of the sounds, and with a little tweaking and compression, they sound great! It's also nice to be working on a bassline and be able to load up a couple different beats and change the tempo realtime to adjust how you want it to sound -- a nice feature.

When programming they just give you accent and slide buttons above each note, to place both wherever you need them. Combinations of the two can be interesting. There are also different types and levels of squelch to play around with, for even more variations of sound, which you won't find on other program out there.

There are things that I don't like about it, but not much really worth mentioning as they nowhere near outway the pros. The note selection gets a small time to get used to, but can be overcome by a midi connection. The slider sweeps can lag real time, but an upgrade in ram or processor speed usually quenches that. I'd love to see them come out with a newer version, hint hint.
