First of all.. Wow! Thanks for all the posts / tips :)
Thanks for the tip.. I have already sent a PM to fiercefish, hopeffully he see's it soon :) I'll also check out the analog heaven mailing list, thx for the tip again.
I know there are none available, and I know that these things are not produced since the 80's. I just find it kinda weird that no one has tryed to emulate the old cpu.. Whoever can do it COULD make loads of money if he really wants to.. Just think of all the 303's with broken CPU's around the world. At least I'd be willing to pay quite some money for such a replacement CPU :) Or maybe someone tryed but doesnt want to share.. I don't know.
Yes that was me on the Props forum.. You're kinda everywhere right? :)
The guy who analysed the 303 basically said that "he's pretty sure it's the CPU.. Since it seems t b doing something different every time".. Well.. sounds like CPU to me too, but then again I'll probbly ask someone else to check it again.. A x0xb0x in a 303.. That would be an option.. but since I suck at electronics it's probably nothing I'd try.. But who knows, maybe someone is willing to do that for me :D

in fact, once that is possible, i'll sell my 303 cpu's and mod my 303's with n0nx0x and 16 extra leds.
it's a matter of time
this is probably the most viable cpu replacement option for a 303, please catalog it when you do since it'll be interesting to see how you impliment the rotary switches.
That sounds pretty cool.. I just read a good part of the n0xn0x thread (viewtopic.php?f=13&t=16065
) Great stuff!. What exactly is "textile's cpu upgrade"? Also, I thought these are all x0xb0x upgrades / mods..? Would this really fit in a tb?
Finally.. Please hit me up if you hear about a CPU in some drawer or a valid CPU re-build makes it's way to the interwebs :) If I have to wait, then I will wait I guess :)
