Corrosive Bassline Machine
Acid V channels the cult-classic bass synth that pushed the underground into overdrive. Pump your mixes full of reactive ever-evolving bass grooves, unleash mutated sequences fizzing with distortion, and experiment with extra features for revitalized rave energy.
D The abrasive, hypnotic sound that gets synapses firing and feet tapping unlike anything else. Give your bass the acidic treatment and set off a sonic chain reaction that’ll heat up your mix to lethal levels.
Little Box, Big Bass
The magic silver box that defined acid, modeled down to component-level detail, capturing the pure sonic essence of a certified bass classic.
In Constant Motion
Acid V is all about movement; instantly spawn jagged polymetric sequences, hypnotic scale-based patterns, and endless sonic mutations.
The strobe-lit dance movements of the ‘80s, ‘90s, and early ‘00s share the same analog DNA; now it’s yours to manipulate, reinvent, and transform.
A Mutated Classic
Steer the 303 sound into experimental territory with upgraded features & effects delivering sounds far darker, deeper, and more impactful than the original.
The Origins of Acid
Many of history’s most iconic and sought-after instruments were not necessarily popular at the time of their introduction; often intended for one thing but transformed by users into something else entirely, ushering entire movements into existence.
When the TB-303 Bass Line synthesizer was released in 1981, it was meant to be a substitute for bass guitars. Its sound was subsequently deemed unrealistic by users, and it was discontinued 3 years later - but when it found its way into the hands of electronic music producers in the late ‘80s, the 303 emerged as something entirely different.
A Bigger, Better Voice
Get deeper and more deranged bassline sounds with a 2-octave range sub oscillator and vibrato that goes from slow detune to audio rate.
The 303 sound is so synonymous with distortion that you can’t have one without the other. We included 14 algorithms to satisfy every crunchy craving.
An Evolved Sequencer
Acid V features the fast, musical, advanced sequencer 303 fans have always wanted; you can even bounce its unique patterns to MIDI for use with clips and other instruments.
Scales & Transmutation
Alter your sequence’s DNA and create fresh patterns in one click with Transmutation, and lock into musical scales specially curated with modern styles in mind.
Under the hatch
Crack open Acid V’s virtual panel to uncover detailed analog fine-tuning, letting you emulate the specific pitchy, drifty, noisy quirks of genuine vintage units.
Modulation & Effects
Create evolving movements & vivid sonic coloration without leaving Acid V’s interface; 3 modulators, 4 FX slots, and 17 FX algorithms for next-gen acid sound.
The classic sawtooth and squarewaveforms, perfectly modeled, offering totally
distinct harmonic characteristics for yourbasslines.
Voics & Filter Controls
Controlling its signature shrieking filter; riding the cutoff, pushing resonance to the limit, and finding punchy sweet spots with envelope controls.
Add more depth and contrasting texture to Acid V's sound with 2 octaves of sub oscillator, plus 3waveforms to choose from.
Dial in subtle pitchy movements,
go full FM with cranked rates, or anything in between with
Acid V's additional vibrato control.
Choose from 14 algorithms, analog or digital, and customize your drive & dry/wet blend.
