AudioRealism Bass Line 3 (ABL3) – an emulation of the classic Roland TB-303 bassline synthesizer – is now available as a Rack Extension for Propellerhead Reason.
According to AudioRealism, ABL3 accurately emulates every aspect of the original, ‘from growling basses to hollow middles and beeping highs with metal rattling accents’.
Here’s the ABL3 video intro:
- Authentic 303 emulation
- ‘Natural knob response’, scaled to match the original 303
- Built-in 303/Rebirth style step sequencer with 64 steps
- Hard sync to the host’s transport
- Supports 4 patterns of 16 steps, 2 patterns of 32 steps or 1 pattern of 64 steps
- CV/Gate input to control the sound engine externally
- CV/Gate output to control other Reason devices from the step sequencer
- CV Modulation inputs for Tuning, Cut Off, Resonance, Envelope Modulation, Decay and Accent
- Resonance and Gate Time trimmers that allow tweaking the emulation
- Three different VCO Models
- Noise settings for VCA Clicks and VCA Noise
- Pattern modifiers with Random, Alter, Copy and Paste functions
- Unique vibrato which is activated by setting UP+DOWN on steps. This effect is one of the few extensions to the 303 that we are launching ABL3 with.
- Full 48 and 96kHz support, which means the engine uses the full bandwidth of the project setting
- Step Record mode which allows recording patterns via MIDI or the On-Screen Piano Keys
