acid (tb-303) synth

Post by AutumnCheney » Sat Aug 01, 2020 11:14 pm

here's a clone of the (in)famous roland tb-303, made in sunvox. i tried to replicate the functionality of the original machine, but i don't actually own a tb-303, so this may not be extremely accurate

the metamodule controls correspond to the controls of the tb-303, minus the sequencer. if you aren't already familiar with the controls for the original synth, here's what they do:

waveform - switches between a sawtooth and a pulsewave for the oscillator

tuning - tunes the synth. has a range of one octave from each side

cutoff - controls the filter cutoff. it's exponential by default

resonance - controls the filter resonance

env mod - controls the depth of the filter envelope. the maximum value will make it sweep down from the cutoff to 0, and halfway will only make it go halfway down. scales with the cutoff

decay - controls the decay time of the filter envelope. higher = faster

accent amount - controls the amount of accent, which adds a quick upwards sweep on the filter cutoff and resonance

slide - adds portamento to the notes

accent - adds accent to the notes

you can use it by itself or with some distortion (i recommend sawzer's fuzz 2 module)

be warned, it is kind of loud, so you may want to turn its volume down or add an amplifier so that you don't get unwanted clipping.

this is under the mit license. if you modify and distribute it, just credit me and say that it's under the mit license. you don't have to credit me if you use it in a song.

i updated the module!

i changed the name to "sv-303" because "acid bass" seemed too generic for my taste. i also labelled a few things and changed the color

This synth is hella good! The sound is similiar but not exactly like the tb-303 so its kind of its own unique thing. Especially the way the accent sounds lets the bass really punch through even at low octaves. Used this in a tune already. Nice! 👍
