iTunes Description:A creative bass synth sequencer for creating electro melodies or dirty phat & funky acid techno basslines.
Inspired by the acid house music scene. An IOS exclusive, compared to a modern equivalent to Rebirth (Rebirth was a popular tb - 303 clone a decade ago).
Look at the video tutorial for a how-to guide. Listen to what you can create easily with 2XB 303.
Create synth sequences using standard step functions as seen on various sequencers like the Roland SH 101 synthesizer or sequences can be generated randomly.
Easily capture whatever you hear and export to AudioShare, Audio-Copy, Email or iTunes Shared Folder
Tweaking cut-off & decay Env-Mod & glide & accent etc for that classic sweet-spot acid growl Tap to dials to swipe up & down for fine adjustment of knobs.
The sound was first compared to a Cyclone TT - 303 & tweaked to extend sound shaping beyond a just bass maker. Waves have optional harmonic version, noise, LFO, glide speed & PHAT/ BASS, and great effects. This is designed to give more creativity beyond an acid synth bass maker.
LIVE CONTROL feature:
Use the keyboard for the following cool tricks:
[Sequence/Control/Transpose]: Transpose both channels simultaneously while playing.
[Sequence/Control/Pattern]: Instantly switch to a saved sequence while playing. Keys correspond to stored program numbers, starting from the current program thats loaded (key 1 is your current program, key 2 is current program+1). Highlighted keys show stored programs. This is great for building up live tracks, or instant crossfading between programs. You can also "Hold settings" so it locks settings like effects.
METRONOME: Toggle drum beats -better than tick-tocks to accompany your bass lines
LFO auto control low pass CUT-OFF and/or PITCH. The pitch level can give a vintage effect subtly detuning with low SPEED or faster for chaotic random pitches.
EFFECTS (Global/master are in yellow.)
OVERDRIVE, COMPRESSION adjusts threshold, ratio, & gain. This is a global effect.
ECHO tempo synced with feedback & wetness.
SAVE ALL. When not playing, save to memory.
Ableton Link syncs with apps .Enable for precise timing without syncing. Press LINK button at the bottom for settings.
MIDI sync with External, Virtual or Audiobus. 2XB303 can be master or slave. ( any simple class-compliant USB should work but some may need to be power assisted)
Virtual MIDI In is always on. If you send from another app AND receive MIDI clock then you will be receiving both MIDI CLOCKS. Choose only one unless you want double tempo (which can be interesting).
While Ableton Link is enabled you can send clock. This means you can use one app to control 2XB303 with external hardware
MIDI note data is sent out on each channel
Record a fixed length, default to 32 steps. Can be changed in settings.
Arming the sampling with CAPTURE (flashing). Starts at counter 1 (ON).
PLAY CAP to listen to your sample loop.
Audio can be routed via IAA into apps like Apple's Garageband. Garageband will also sync your sequence for excellent multi-track recording.
Audiobus 3. Route audio to mix or record into other applications
Audiobus Filter. Audiobus 3 V3 input will travel through channel 1 and then gated by sequencer. Mute Ch 1 to hear just audio input. Play vocal loops or guitar riffs with a synced filter & delay controlled by your sequence. Awesome creativity!
To save you press "Save all", it then flashes. Now choose destination ("!" means its occupied ) then press "Save All" to confirm.
