ReBirth RB-338 is a software synthesizer for Microsoft Windows and Mac which was developed by Propellerhead Software back in 1996.
Propellerhead Software ceased developing the program in 1999. Support was officially discontinued in September 2005. Shortly afterwards, the ReBirth Museum Web site was launched and the last version was made available as a free download. ;-)
For those of you that don't know, ReBirth emulates the Roland TB-303 synthesizer, a Roland TR-808, and a Roland TR-909 drum machine all at once. Each of the emulated devices has its own pattern selector. This allows fast switches between different musical sequences, and re-programming the TB-303 for playing different notes, for instance, is rendered unnecessary.
ReBirth is truly a fantastic piece of software. :-)
