Freeware Zone Synthesizers!
Acid Zone VST B-Line 303- Version 3 is here! Now available for download and it is Free!
New freeware monophonic dual oscillator bass line synthesizer, B-Line 303 (version 3.0), captures the vibe and sound of classic EDM and Acid techno music synthesizers from the 70’s and 80’s. B-Line 303 includes our new synth engine and gives producers new unique abilities to shape their sounds.
New in Version 3 is the Pattern Control Filter (PCF) that adds iconic Acid style tweaks to the sound. The PCF allows any midi pattern to be manipulated into an almost infinite pallet of Acid goodness. B-Line 303 now has our own groove sequencer as an alternative method of old school sound generation along with standard midi. B-Line 303 now comes with 50 designer presets to get you started but has room for up to 200 presets. In order to create the entire Acid bass sound experience, B-Line 303 comes equipped with our improved Stereo Doppler Chorus effect and a Stereo Echo effect.

Why is B-Line 303 Now Free?
B-Line 303 now includes our new synth engine that we are testing out. B-Line 303 is not a glorified Beta release. It is a fully functional program that we are offering free to the public to mark our 15 year anniversary hanging around an industry that we enjoy! We hope you enjoy B-Line 303 and please remain on the look out for new SonicXTC products! Any feedback on B-Line 303 can be sent to [email protected]!
Some of B-Line 303's special features!
Chaos Under Control- One secret to obtaining classic Acid sound is the ability to tweak parameters in a rhythmic fashion in order to gain optimum expressiveness! The included Pattern Control Filter (PCF) allows the user to create amazing unique patterns to control the different filters included in B-Line 303.
Imagine recording a simple midi bass line in your digital audio workstation (DAW) of choice. With the B-Line 303 internal PCF unit, you can transform that single simple bass line into an almost endless number of new and unique Acid riffs by just drawing in your own PCF patterns! With midi automation, you can easily combine your PCF tweaks with all the other B-Line 303 sound sculpting tools to maximize your creativity. With the new Groove Sequencer included in version 3, B-Line 303 is a solid weapon for the creation of Acid and other classic EDM styles!
Classic Analog Oscillator emulation-We burned the midnight oil to develop our own saw and square wave emulation. In the end we think we captured a lot of the true dynamic range a traditional analog signal would generate. While B-Line 303 does not sound exactly like the old classics (or new analog classics) it has a vibe all of its own that is fun and inspirational to play.
Waves to ride- B-Line 303 is a two oscillator synthesizer at its core. We have included over 40 plus wave shapes to help sculpt B-Line 303's sound! The advantage of having two oscillators is the fact that B-Line 303 now has a broader spectrum of sound creation possibilities under the hood. Unison and De-tune effects are now possible and B-Line 303 can generate some nasty growls and howls due to the built in Drive unit and self oscillating Filters! Truth be told, B-Line 303's filters kind of suck! But they are bad in a good way as they make B-Line 303 almost feel like a 30 year old synth relic that has been either neglected or slightly abused after too many band road trips and beer spills. In other words, B-Line 303 has some personality that begs to be tinkered with!
Full of NRG! New freeware 3 oscillator synthesizer, Hi-NRG Zone Retro LE, is the latest offering in our Zone series. It is designed to allow easy access to those old classic synthesizer sounds that defined the “Hi-NRG” vibe on the dance floor. Like Deep Mono, Deep Step-606, AZR-01, and TZR-01, HZR-01 is simple to program and has all the synth programming parameters on the front panel. Tweak a knob and you immediately begin to sculpt the sound. It comes with 16 presets to get you started down the Hi-NRG path!
Just Like A DIY Synthesizer! New
monophonic single oscillator synthesizer, Acid Zone
Retro, is a synth that harkens back to the DIY analog synths of the
past. Similar to Deep Mono and Deep Step-606, AZR-01 is simple to
program and has all the synth
programming parameters available right on the front panel. Tweak a knob
and you immediately begin to sculpt
the sound. It comes with 32 presets to get you started but can cover a
lot of sonic ground. The sequencer included
in AZR-01 was derived from reviewing the many sequencer schematics
the Flowstone/Synthmaker community forum! We made our modifications but
thank all the forum developers for sharing their creative and
groundbreaking work. This synthesizer is our tribute to the Flowstone
Why We Like It!
Music is about tinkering to come up with something new and different. AZR-01 is a blast to the past in a way that makes forging ahead into new sonic territory fun and creative.
Why We Think You Will Like It!
has a raw sound similar to an old DIY synthesizer that can really cut
through in a mix. The old school delay and reverb unit allows for
additional sonic manipulation.
New freeware 5 oscillator synthesizer, Trance Zone Retro LE, is a recreation of those old classic synthesizers that brought the “Super Saw” sound to the dance floor. Like Deep Mono, Deep Step-606, and AZR-01, TZR-01 is simple to program and has all the synth programming parameters on the front panel. Tweak a knob and you immediately begin to sculpt the sound. It comes with 16 presets to get you started down the Super Saw path!
Why we like it!
There are a few really nice free and for sale Trance VST's on the market. So what is the problem? Simple, almost all of them provide canned "super saw" waveforms that you either like or do not. You can not alter them in any real way. TZR-01 allows you to mix 5 oscillators separately to create your own "super saw" sound. This is sound synthesis the old fashioned way!
Why we think you will like it!
With 5 oscillators to play with TZR-01 can sound really large. It is easy to program and the sounds you can create are almost always tweakable to be original and fresh.
