Acid8 is a hybrid digital/analog acid machine controlled by a powerful step sequencer.
The heart of Acid8 is an 8-BIT oscillator that can be manipulated to the extreme. The device offers up to 16 waveforms to choose from and enable users to redraw their own! You can apply up to 5 dsp effects at once, invert bits of the digital signal for weird harmonics and effects, link the env mod to pitch for percussive sounds and more.
The circuitry is analog and therefore offers a beefy VCA and a resonant low-pass filter with character.
The built-in step sequencer has all the functionality you would expect from an acid machine and is very easy to use so you’ll be composing patterns effortlessly.
Edit, copy/paste & randomize patterns in real-time without having to stop the sequencer. 8 levels of swing are available to get your grooves going – swing and waveshape info are stored within the pattern, and chain patterns into songs!
-7 knobs, 1 Rotary Encoder, 22 Buttons and 40 subtle white Leds with 2 levels of brightness.
