Can I remove the yellow sticker? That edge is lifted and I would love to pull it off. That's the only negative I can say about this plugin.

ah yes, you click the patch display to open the menu. RTFM would have helped too.

You can also remove it by deleting the sticker file from your drive.

That would mean you coud also put your own stick on it. I might 'polish' the front panel while I'm at it.

Yes it works, there's an option 'MIDI Output' that can be enabled via the menu (when you click on the yellow text).

Yes but only on the .vst it seems. When you open the receiving track the AU doesn't show ABL3 in the 2nd midi from dropdown.

Using ABL3 to sequence a SH-101 plugin emulation is awesome :D

Is there a way to drag'n'drop patterns into live (or bitwig?)

Not on my rig atm, just save the pattern as midi or record the pattern using abl3 midi out to a midi track and export midi?

Excellent product update from an already great product. Thanks for the nice upgrade price.

There are some minor things I'd like to see improved. I'll drop you an email as soon as I have the time to gather them

It sounds very 303, very analogue, if I may say so. You saved me a lot of money

ABL3's square is so rubbery, it sounds identical to my x0xb0x. The matrix programming mode is much faster than anything else. This is perhaps the only VSTi which makes me think software can be better than hardware. Its got that sound!

THANK YOU! That makes this an instant purchase for me now. I was having trouble getting it to work until your instructions.

Yeah, their site is still under construction it seems. But you can just download the new version and update your old ABL3, no need to log in to their site.

3.2.0 is here (a lot of changes!):

Has anybody tried it side by side with the actual Roland Cloud plugin TB-303?

The Roland Cloud one has an awesome sequencer, randomize functions, and of course the sound. BUT it's tied to a subscription...

I will pit these against each other at the studio this weekend, just wondered if anybody had already done this and had any thoughts?

IMHO according to demo sounds, videos ABL is the closest to original TB-303 from any side of sound (osc, filter, dist etc), even since v2. Closer than any other software and hardware clones and even TB-3.
But I even can't imagine what they did with v3 and the latest updates, because they emulated more and more closer to TB-303 recently.

It would interesting to compare with Roland Cloud 303.

I'm using the ABL3 to sequence my Behringer TD-3. For some random reason, I find it easier to program acid patterns using the sequencer of the ABL3. Then I just export the midi file and paste it on my TD-3 midi channel. I can also retweek it if I need to. Sometimes it's handy to see the pianoroll outside of the sequencer, specially if you want to set another starting point for your loop, etc.
