About External Waveform Input

This mod gives you the possibility to use any audio signal as oscillator source instead of the original sawtooth or square of the TB-303. It works like this:
An external signal is feed into the TB-303 and used as oscillator. It runs through the filter and VCA of the 303. We will use the MIX IN connector of the TB-303 to feed in this signal, since nobody really uses MIX IN for mixing the TB-303's audio signal with an external signal.

Let's assume you have MIDI303 installed in your TB-303 and assume that it responds to channel 16. Put a String on channel 16 of your synth/sampler. Connect the output of the synth/sampler to the TB-303 MIX IN input. When you play the string it will enter the TB-303 and it will be processed by the TB-303's filter and VCA sections.
