Introducing Troublemaker: this is not a 303
The legendary TB-303 has magical properties; it is filled to the brim with analog shimmer. Its output jack is a gateway to a parallel universe and when you twiddle the filter knobs an army of highly trained pixies chisel the square waves from freshly harvested unicorn souls. So 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.
It also has:
- Ableton Link synchronization,
- MIDI CC controllers for all knobs,
- Core Midi, Virtual Midi, Bluetooth Midi input,
- MIDI Clock Sync, MIDI Start / Stop support
- Realtime Mutation Probability Engine
- Standalone sequencer supports 1-64 steps
- Audiobus support
- Exports MID and WAV files from the standalone sequencer
- User manual and MIDI charts on ruismaker.com
And unlike the TB-303, it can actually sound like a bass guitar ;-)
What's New in Version 1.2.3
Fixed an issue causing some apps to recognize exported WAVs as CAFs.
Another Home Run!!!
I now own all of this developer's apps. And, all of them top notch. However, this one might be my favorite out of them all. The sequencer in this baby is insane! Very easy to set up exactly what you're after, but then hit the random buttons and tweak the probability settings, and you'll end up with magnificent stuff you hadn't even thought of. Highly recommended!
Tried to link trouble maker to Garage band and I could not get it to connect properly or slave to the midi due to the fact Garage band has not accommodated Abelton link yet. You can run it as a instrument selection through the plug in, but can't sink together. I would give this 10 stars if you can Garage band to implements.
Sounds great and is dead simple to program. Developer really listens to feedback and updates.
Please ignore review from dufus that gave it a 3 because of another app no having link.
