nekobee is a DSSI soft synth plugin that emulates the sound of the TB-303 Bassline. It is not an exact copy; rather than make it "just like the real thing", the design concentrates on modelling the circuitry and was adjusted by comparing the sounds achievable with it to those heard on classic acid house tracks. It includes a switchable square/saw wave VCO, 24dB/octave VCF, an adjustable decay time for the VCF, a fixed decay time for the VCA, and an interesting bit of circuitry around the "Accent" control.
This looked like a good basis for a project I have in mind, and works reasonably well when you get it going. Sadly you can forget about looking under the bonnet. There is no way to modify it or get any inkling as to how it works. I appreciate that they are offering a more advanced commercial version, but it would be nice if the free version was open-source.

Maybe that's because it's a Gtk application? If you've got a better idea or a constructive suggestion, I'm sure the author would love to hear it.
