Arturia have dropped a new software emulation that is no doubt gonna get a look in from bass heads and techno junkies. Acid V uses Arturia’s cutting-edge software emulation technology to reproduce Roland’s legendary TB-303 whilst delivering that fat analogue tone that producers love from the iconic synth responsible for an entire genre of music.
Acid V attempts to capture the essence of the TB-303’s in-your-face analogue sound while adding a range of fresh and experimental features. Designed to expand on simple feature set of the original TB-303, ACID V looks to redefine what’s possible with the sound of acid.
- Evolved sequencer & arpeggiator
- Advanced Modulation system for evolving sounds
- Built-in Distortion
- Sub Oscillator and vibrato
- Scales and Transmutation
- 17x High grade effects
Waveform selector: The classic sawtooth and square waveforms, perfectly modelled, offering totally distinct harmonic characteristics for your basslines.
Voice & filter controls: A row of controls for adjusting Acid V’s voice, primarily controlling its signature shrieking filter; riding the cutoff, pushing resonance to the limit, and finding punchy sweet spots with envelope controls.
Sub Osc: Add more depth and contrasting texture to Acid V’s sound with 2 octaves of sub oscillator, plus 3 waveforms to choose from.
Vibrato: Dial in subtle pitchy movements, go full FM with cranked rates, or anything in between with Acid V’s additional vibrato control
Distortion: Choose from 14 algorithms, analogue or digital, and customize your drive & dry/wet blend.
Sequencer & performance controls: Reflecting the controls on its hardware predecessor, Acid V’s main sequencer panel lets you quickly adjust sequencing, arpeggiation, note input, and more – ideal for interacting with your patterns in real-time.
