Free 303 Racks

Post by Schmidi » Sun Jan 12, 2014 6:51 pm

Hey everybody! One of my goals this year is to use Live's Suite instruments more (as opposed to less stable 3rd party plugins). Lately I've been feeling like making some Acid music and decided to try and make some 303'ish racks. Feel free to have fun with them.

There are two Operator racks that are your more traditional saw and square wave 303. The third is the more aggressive modern 303 screamer sound (Ala Josh Wink) using Analog.

Please note that there is no built in sequencer to any of these. There are plenty of M4L sequencers you could try out, but I just run it from a session clip and twirl knobs as a subscriber to the "Keep it simple, stupid" methodology!

None of them are dead on 303 clones, but to me they sound better than some of the synthedit attempts I've heard. (I think) I have the most fun parameters mapped to the 8 macros already, so just write a midi clip and twist some knobs!

Hope you enjoy them!

***Just updated all 3 with slightly improved macro mappings, initial synth preset, and knob labeling!
