Anton Lyubenov Savov aka Antto has released version 1.0 of Venom VB-303, a free synthesizer instrument for Windows.
The Venom VB-303 is an approximation of the classic 303 Bass Line synthesizer.
I don’t want to delay this any longer. I disabled some functions because they are not vital and were a little broken: .303 file import/export and pattern manipulators are disabled. MidiPlay mode has an annoying lock to encourage you to use the sequencer more often.
A huge thanks to you KVR people, for your patience, help, and feedback.
Venom VB-303 is available to download for Windows (VST).

AudioRealism has announced public beta version 2.9 of AudioRealism Bass Line 2 for Windows, a virtual bass line synthesizer instrument.
The legendary silver box which is hallmark in electronic music has been recreated in AudioRealism Bass Line 2 (ABL2). Analog modeling techniques have been employed to create a DSP-algorithm that accurately emulates every aspect of the original 303, 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.
AudioRealism Bass Line 2 synthesizer plug-in
Changes in ABL2 v2.9.0
- Added 64-bit support.
- Improved Window compatability by storing patches and other files under My Documents.
- Improvements to the 303 engine.
- Patches are now stored in .pat and .param files instead of embedding the parameters into the .pat via meta-tags.
The public beta for Windows (requires a 64-bit VST host) is available to download here.
A 64-bit version for Mac is expected to follow soon.

ShamanStems has released Acid House, a collection of twisted acid synth and basslines, jackin’ drum machine grooves, warehouse lazers and modulations, FXed hits and 6am orb-like pads.
Inspired by the second summer of love, Acid House pays homage to the 303, 808 and 909-led tracks of the late 80s and early 90s – serving up squelching 303 basslines, bleepy synths, classic rave chords and vintage drum machine beats created from 100% analogue sources including Roland, Yamaha and Korg.
All loops have processed with a host of outboard kit to ensure a richness, warmth and punch that will max out any contemporary club system.
Acid House features
- 120 authentic Phuture and Cajmere-style analogue acid bass and synths processed with various modulation, distortion, phaser and delay pedals. Many loops are offered with up to five variants.
- 20 bangin’ and jackin’ drum machine rhythms created on classic sequencers from Roland, Korg and Boss.
- Vintage Textures & FX – lost-in-a-field FX, drug-induced ambiences, vast pads, reverbed hits, lasers, modulations and more.
- Mangled Vox – Classic house phrases (‘Chicago’, ‘jack your body’) and indecipherable glitchisms to supplement the groove.
- All samples are tempo-labeled at 122bpm and key- labeled where applicable.
Acid House is available from Sounds To Sample for 14.90 EUR.
