Xoxbox Overlay

by Tokzik on Thu Mar 21, 2013 6:23 am

Hey guys

My new Xoxbox should be ready within the next few days, just wondering does anyone have the proper Roland font as used on the TB 303? I've done loads of searching through Google and any I've seen barely resemble the font on the real 303. I had a nosey at the overlay competition that was on here a few years back and saw some people had gotten fairly close.

Anyway, looking forward to some xoxing :D

Cheers

there are like 3 different fonts used on the TB-303.. which one specifically?
i've been trying to locate them in the past, they are unobtainable if you ask me

All of them really, think the only way round it is to get a really large straight-on photo of the front panel of a TB303 and create a dxf outline of the text and work from that. I have dxf's for the front panels etc that I can add that to.

ITC Serif Gothic is similar to the "Computer Controlled" font
Sveningsson is similar to the "Roland" font
the labels on the buttons/leds/knobs are all upper case, so it's hard to tell but you can look at "Franklin Gothic" or "Bitstream Vera Sans" or "Pragmatica"
the "Bass Line" font is very hard.. it's also used on some other roland synths/brochures and allmost all of Boss pedals
