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 (predefined),
- 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 3 support (audio + MIDI)
- Exports MID and WAV files from the standalone sequencer
- User manual and MIDI charts on ruismaker.com
- Comes with an extra AUv3 plugin version of a modded Troublemaker unit
And unlike the TB-303, it can actually sound like a bass guitar ;-)
Now includes a used, lightly modded, heavily battered Troublemaker unit that has seen better days. Sounds like its circuits are 30 years old and some components have been bypassed or tinkered with. But, hey, you got it for free so who cares? Look for it in your AUv3 plugin folder.
Ratings and Reviews
Great app, awesome dev
Just wanted to say thanks, and that on a 3rd gen IPad Pro, you are one of, or possibly the only developer that is good enough that all of your apps are FULLY functional, I’ve wasted like 200 bucks on apps that half/don’t work at all on new devices/ios12. You give me hope that I didn’t waste 1400 bucks on an IPad that I mainly got for mobile audio production. Moog pooped the bed, sugarbytes pooped the bed, and so did most others, there are few apps that are fully functional and don’t have audiobus zombie background use and 70% cpu usage. I seriously have to hard reset brand new IPad after attempting to use 30 dollar apps.
Thanks again keep it up, cuz you totally win at this point in the app game. You made higher paid devs look completely incompetent.
The best iOS bass synth that I’ve found
I’m a big fan of everything I’ve tried from Bram Bros. This is just a great Acid bass synth with a fun sequencer that doesn’t settle for just being a straight TB-303 knockoff. More waveforms and onboard effects make it really versatile. It’s easy to get great sounds from it. Running it as an AU plugin makes it easy to automate knob tweaking using the Rozeta LFO plugin. I’d love the ability to save/load presets from files/iCloud while running as a plugin.
Active and Responsive Developer, Great Sounds, AUv3 what more could you want!
I own every product from this developer. I am in support of developers embracing the AUv3 standard, especially when it sounds this good. Lots of consistency and simple, but powerful control options. Lots of constant updates with new features. Highly recommended.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
