    I actually like zeeon in mono mode on ios and of course bram made troublemaker with the excellent sequencer. Not sure if they are on iPhone eek 😬

    Is there anything thing more like the real thing or like the ReBirth synth, with the same controls and control limits?

  • Both Zeeon and Troublemaker work great on iPhone.

    +1. They work great on the iPhone.

  • No I’m afraid not. Troublemaker will probably be the closest iOS TB-303 type of thing but the difference is clear. It is however an app worth having in its own right and it is not sold as a 303 emulator. So no there is nothing if you are wanting anything near that ‘is that the real thing?’ scenario. The closest you will get to it on a budget is to buy a secondhand Roland TB-3, which will cost you about £130 or equivalent. They are well worth saving up for/buying if you are a lover of the acid squelch. Another thing is they hold their value- they come and go with great regularity and the secondhand price is roughly always the same.

    I have those already. Not what I would use for TB-303 acid.

    I have a Syntecno TeeBee, Mark III.
    It’s awesome, but it isn’t in my phone :smiley:

    If you want to get squelchy Aceeeeed old school ReBirth bass with Troublemaker, just use a few of Rozetas LFOs on the resonance , decay, punch etc to assist your manual knob twiddling, in combination with the randomiser features in Rozeta BassLine all running in AUM to create slides. Worked for me yesterday! :)

    The resonance doesn’t go high enough etc.
    It’s just not the same.
    BassLine is in it’s own different sweet spot.

    Close your eyes tight, clench your fists, gnash your teeth and wish as long and hard as you can until you sweat. Now stop- open your eyes and relax..... any luck?

    Nope. Need a dentist now.

  • Synthmaster One also does a pretty nice 303 emulation

    As a huge 303 enthusiast (i even build HW DIY 303 clone for myself, yes, i love 303 almost like NS2 :trollface: ) i had to say maximum 25-30% match :)

    Troublemaker is somewhere around 85% match (which is great considering it was not mentioned as pure 303 clone), AudioRealism Bassline (TechnoBox - but not AUv3, even not AB compatible, total abandonware :( is 95% ..

    Currently best available HW emulation Cyclone TT-303 Bass Bot V2, i would say 99.99% match :) Considering the price and small size, it's definitely worth to buy as iPAd companion for true 303 sounds for every 303 lover :)

  • You can go old school and use samples, i have a soundfont you can have if you have a sampler au? Made this in five minutes to demo.

    TechnoBox2 was good. Would be great if they updated to AuV3.

    Thanks, but sampled 303 doesn’t sound like a 303. It sounds like a MC-505.

  • @jolico said:

    yeah - i also asked them on twitter if they have any plans of port current ABL3 to iOS but didn't get any reply ..

    I dont think the cyclone is that close to the original, i say the Avalon is the closest along with the RE303 replica.

    I’ve asked them several times via email. I got one response asking if I was asking for 64 bit support. I replied yes and maybe Audiobus/AUv3. That was 12/2017. Never heard anything else.

    Maybe contact them at: [email protected]

    Thanks Dendy.

    Yes - I totally agree, which is why I was careful to say 'pretty nice' instead of 'pretty accurate' :D . it's no good for the purists. I only mentioned it in case the OP already had SM One in his plugin library.

  • I'm totally aware i'm a bit pain in ass when it comes to 303 emulation purism, it's my obsession for years :))

  • I just contacted them via Twitter and email. We’ll see. Rebirth and Technobox are best IMHO. Not that others aren’t good but there is a difference.

  • @dendy said:

    Agreed, TechnoBox2 was by far the closest and sounded very similar to ABL2 on desktop. It doesn't work at all on iOS 12 unfortunately, an updated version based on ABL3 would be great!

    Troublemaker is fun, but the square wave doesn't really sound like a 303 imo.

  • BassLine by FingerPro is Not AUv3 but it is lovely and capture-able in the case you're open to rendering out and incorporating back into tracks as Audio (or self-sampling in the case of NS2 / Gadget etc).

    Otherwise I'd say Troublemaker by a country mile despite it not being an exact a 303.

    TB-03 in Syntronik.
    AU, iPhone, and a lot of filter options that I don’t fully understand.
    Sounds great in my ears.
    But my ears are not connected to your brain.
    More First World problems, I guess.

    I'll bet for the purists it will sound too much like a MC-303/307/505 :lol:
    Not sure if RD4 is still being developed for iOS. And if it sounds ok.
    And Rhythm Studio had a TB-303 like gadget too

    edit/observation: I should have considered if you had them in the past. Maybe they're not available anymore. Sorry :tongue:

    I usually use troublemaker sequenced by Rozeta bassline and am always happy with the results. I really wish ims-20 would go auv3 but I do get some great squelchies with that thing

    Edit: Also JAF Filter collection has a ms20 filter emulation along with a lot of others that have some pretty nice resonance

  • Funny out of all the clones Behringer could have ripped off, 303 was the one i wanted most. Maybe legally Roland had that one covered.

    No problem ☺️, i’m not familiar with the MC-505.
