So, there i am surfing the net. I might be addicted. You too? How the hell did we get by without this thing?
Anyway, i’m checking my favourite sites and BOOM! there it is. Rebirth for the iPhone!
Man talk about taking a trip back in time.
If you’re not familiar with Rebirth, it’s an emulation of 3 classic roland boxes.
The awesome tr-909 and tr-808 drum machines, and the mighty tb-303 bassline.
These machines are revered for their sounds and still fetch big bucks on ebay.
When Propellerheads released rebirth in the mid 90’s, it was a revolution.
The sound of Rebirth was superb and suddenly anyone could make filthy acid tracks with these machines; albeit virtually.
Development of Rebirth ceased in 1999, and in 2005 Propellerheads made the program freely available to everyone via the rebirth museum.
I highly recommend checking out the museum and discovering the impact Rebirth had on the music making community.
But back to the iPhone. Rebirth is on the freakin’ iPhone!
As soon as i saw it, my legs gave way and my wallet got a little lighter.
check it out!
