new sound, new interface. 

acid8 is an 8Bit bass-line synthesizer with a revisited sound and interface.

MKIII has been rethought from the ground up.  The filter has been replaced with an new all digital one, the UI has been redesigned for more immediate handling and many other real time features have been added including transposition automation, filter wobbler, stutter and vinyl spin-down effects.

The synth engine now has dual oscillators allowing fat and harmonized sounds.

acid8 MKIII offers the same features as its discontinued slimsynth uAcid8 counterpart, but with the addition of hardware MIDI and analog sync in and out connectivity and packed in a rugged steel case.
