Let me introduce you to ABL2. Classic 303 emulation plus more. First, I’ll get you going with presets and the basic layout so you can start experimenting right away.
Next, we have the first section of the synth. This is where we can access our menus, sync options and modes. We can also add color and harmonics using three different knobs; drive, distortion and volume.
Onto the noise maker. This is where we will do most of the sound design. The layout and parameters are similar to a classic subtractive synthesizer. Not too many options, just enough.
Now let’s start programming a pattern. In this video we will go over the basics. It’s very simple and straight forward. Set your steps, select your note and add flavor.
The mouse is great, but it can be slow when it comes to making music. Let’s go over how to use a MIDI controller to program patters. Once you set and learn the mappings, programming is a breeze.
Ok, for all you 303 purists here is a programming method very similar to the hardware. Set your notes in pitch mode then go back and set your gate in time mode. Piece of cake.
Ever wanted to virtualize your 303 hardware… and the patters on it? Now you can. ABL2 can extract all kinds of info from a recorded pattern. Watch how easy it is.
Now that you have a pattern and a sound dialed in, we probably need to automate those parameters as we go. Good ol' DAW automation to the rescue. We can map parameters or use MIDI CCs. Both work great.
