Arturia introduces 303-inspired Acid V, ‘A Mutated Classic’

Arturia drops Acid V, a new plugin emulation of Roland TB-303 Bass Line synth.

Arturia today introduced Acid V, a virtual instrument that offers their take on the classic Roland TB-303 sound.

Does the world need another take on the 303, especially when Behringer offers a hardware 303 knockoff for around $130? Yes, apparently.

The Acid V promises to be as closely modelled on the much-loved bassline box as you’d expect.

Arturia says that Acid V is designed to bring the classic acid sound into the modern production era. They say that they’ve combined component-level modeling to accurately capture the originals sound, and married that to upgraded features and effects, to make the Acid V sound “darker, deeper, and more impactful than the original”.


  • Evolved sequencer & arpeggiator
  • Advanced Modulation system for evolving sounds
  • Built-in Distortion
  • Sub Oscillator and vibrato
  • Scales and Transmutation
  • 17x High grade effects

Other features include vibrato that lets you get into FM territory, 14 distortion algorithms, an easy-to-use step sequencer, and the ability to drag and drop your sequences into your DAW.

There are loads of 303 emulations out there already – Roland’s own plugin, D16 Phosycon 2 and AudioRealism Bass Line 3 to name just three of them.

An in-depth look at Acid V and it’s capabilities:

Acid V runs on PC and Mac in VST/AU/AAX formats, and existing Arturia customers are advised to log in to their accounts for an introductory discount. Everyone else can currently purchase it for $/€99 through Sept 14 (regular price will be $/€199). You can download a demo from the Arturia website. V Collection 9 discounts are also available.
