Someone said Acid? Oh boy… Don’t we have already too many TB-303 clones around? Well, the thing is Troublemaker, the new iOS app by Bram Bros (the developer behind the handy drum synth Ruismaker) is not your usual TB-303 clone and it’s definitely worth checking out.
As the company had to say “if you want a TB-303, you should buy a TB-303. But if you’re after *that sound* Troublemaker will give you everything you need in spades.”
Troublemaker sports a carefully crafted diode filter emulation and among the available oscillators are the typical raspy, nasal sawtooth and rubbery squarewave with its oddball shape and shifting pulsewidth.
It also has the wow!.
Troublemaker is fully Audio Unit (AUv3) compatible, so you can go wild running multiple instances in your favorite DAWs.
Ableton Link synchronization
MIDI CC mapping
Core Midi, Virtual Midi, Bluetooth Midi input
Exports MID and WAV files from the standalone sequencer
And unlike the TB-303, it can actually sound like a bass guitar 😉
Compatibility: Requires iOS 9.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Note: Troublemaker requires iPad 4/Mini 2/iPhone 5S/iPod Touch 6 or higher.
Price & Availability: Available now at $9.99 at the app store.
