  1. Pardon my ignorance, but what makes this clip 'old school' and the one just down the page 'acid'? Is it just the presence or absence of an ersatz drum beat?

    I guess I never got the hang of genres…

    Acid sequencing is a style that was defined by the TB-303, and features sequenced accents and/or glides, in addition to the pitch sequencing.

    Future Retro has developed several devices that can do acid-style sequencing, independent of actual sound generation. Hook up a Future Retro Mobius to any cheap synth and it will sound "acid", because of the way it's being sequenced.

    Traditionally, though, people associate acid sequencing with the TB-303's sound, which is shaped by its filter.
