About ABL3

AudioRealism's Bassline 3

Bassline 3 is AudioRealism’s latest version of their acclaimed series of 303 emulation plugins. The plugin is a complete redesign from the previously released ABL2 and promises to be AudioRealism’s most authentic emulation to date.

Other than the improved quality of the emulation, ABL3 also features a brand new pattern edit view, allowing for easy programming, a real-time randomizer, a wave analyzer, the ability to import patterns from the TB-03 and the TD-03, a step record function (via Midi), and a vibrato effect.

Here’s a comparison between ABL3 and the TB-303.
