AudioRealism has announced availability of version 3.2.0 of its AudioRealism Bass Line 3 (ABL3) 303 emulation plugin.

AudioRealism ABL 3.2.0

ABL3 is a complete redesign from scratch and has been in development for several years with the goal of creating the most authentic emulation possible. With an intuitive and streamlined workflow we hope ABL3 will set a new benchmark in software 303 emulation.

Changes in ABL v3.2.0 features

  • Extended MIDI Learn: Mapping Classic view functions to standard MIDI keys. This allows for programming patterns directly from your MIDI controller.
  • Mapping of MIDI CC to Advanced Random functions, including pattern length.
  • Automation/MIDI CC control of Gate Trim and other parameters.
  • Change VCO Mode to give variations, mostly affecting pulse width center point in tuning. 2 is the “normal” mode tuned to our 303. Some 303s sound like 1, others sound more like mode 3.
  • Added Bass Boost control to Setup Page.
  • Added VCF Trim control to Setup Page.
  • Added Improve Emulation setting on Setup page. This allows to switch between the ABL3.1.1 and ABL3.2.0 engine for comparison. Bass Boost and VCF Trim settings has no effect in when Improve Emulation is off.
  • Changed: Reso Trim knob boosts Resonance slightly more in 3.2.0.
  • Changes to Accent circuit model, adding more energy to the accent build up [303 engine].
  • Pattern View: Added paging to quickly flip between 16 steps by clicking left or right of the scrollbar.
  • Pattern View: expanded scrollbar hit area by a few pixels.
  • In Classic Edit mode Added shift (or right mouse button click) DOWN, UP, ACCENT to replicate the Time mode functions of the 303.. .
  • Import TB-03 Pattern menu option now allows to import .pat files from ABL1,ABL2 and ABL3. These do not affect the synth settings (cutoff, reso etc).
  • Additional de-clicking in audio engine.

ABL 3 is available for $95 USD / 95 EUR. It comes in VST and AU plugin formats.
