AudioRealism Updates Bass Line To Version 2.0
AudioRealism has released Bass Line 2, an upgrade to their TB-303 emulator. The biggest development has to be the improved clarity of the bass sound. However, the new Pattern Analyzer is a close second. The pattern analyzer is a tool for editing and analyzing patterns. In further aid to help users transition their original patterns into ABL an audio detection algorithm has been devised. That’s right – it can create patterns using audio files as a source.
Bass Line 2 Enhancements:
â€¢ The bass sound has been improved to reduce “muddiness”
â€¢ The filter has been improved to incorporate subtle nonlinear effects for additional squelch
â€¢ The distortion unit has been improved with less aliasing
â€¢ The controls have been calibrated to better match the response of the original
â€¢ MIDI Learn function now displays all mapped CCs
â€¢ Load multiple patterns at once
â€¢ Preferences dialog for easier setup
â€¢ Pattern section buttons are now MIDI assignable
â€¢ ABL2 imports the following file formats: RBS, PH and PAT
â€¢ PNG support for easier user skinning
New Bass Line 2 Features:
â€¢ Pattern analyzer with Audio detection: The pattern analyzer is a tool for editing and analyzing patterns. It can create patterns using audio files as a source
â€¢ Improved filter emulation: The filter has been improved so as to include the nonlinear behavior of the original. This gives additional ‘squelch’ in fast sweeps.
â€¢ Accent ducking: On the original 303 it will take the envelope a while to ‘warm up’ after an accent
â€¢ When the accent knob is fully counter clockwise this can be perceived as a ducking envelope. This feature is now included in ABL2.
â€¢ Pattern library: The pattern library menu allows easy access to your favorite patterns. It also possible to load several patterns in one go by selecting multiple patterns from the Load Pattern dialog.
â€¢ Two new 3D skins included.
