AudioRealism Bass Line 3 (ABL3) is an emulation of a classic pattern based bass machine from 1982. The legendary silver box that is hallmark in electronic music has been recreated in ABL3 using analog modeling techniques to create a DSP-algorithm that accurately emulates every aspect of the original, from growling basses to hollow middles and beeping highs with metal rattling accents. Patterns are composed in a fashion similar to the original using the integrated step sequencer with easy to use manipulation functions such as transpose and randomization.

New in version 1.2.0:
– Added CV Slide Output
– Adding defective Accent switch to back panel
– Adding defective Slide switch to back panel

New in version 1.1.3:
– Graphics improved to scale to higher resolution displays
– Improved audio engine (less clicks)

– Authentic 303 emulation with 18dB ladder filter
– Built-in Step Sequencer
– Now with advanced random and grid edit modes

ABL1 was released in 2003 and became quickly one of the most popular 303 emulations as a VST plug-in. ABL2 improved on that and was released 2007. ABL3 is the latest version of our 303 emulation platform.

The ABL3 engine is a complete rewrite and has been in development for many years with the single goal of making the most authentic 303 emulation possible. With ABL3 we hope it will set a new benchmark in analog emulation.

ABL3.1.1 Improvements:
– Pattern Grid Edit mode
– Advanced Randomizer
– Integrated distortion unit with hipass control
– Minor sound engine improvements (less noise and aliasing, improved clarity)
– 23 Additional patches

– Extremely authentic 303 emulation using our ABL3 engine
– Ultra natural knob response, scaled to match the original 303 precisely
– 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
