Pure Acid is a top quality bassline synthesizer and drum machine in one app! Inspired by classic hardware bassline synthesizers and rhythm machines, which changed musical world back in 80's, like the legendary TB-303 synthesizer, TR-808 / 707 / 909 rhythm boxes and their numerous replicas, Pure Acid is designed to bring back the feeling of retro analog gear in every detail in terms of sound, as well as to provide new functions previously unavailable in the original devices to make your music creation workflow fast and fun! A large number of factory preset patterns will immerse you into an exciting world of Acid House, Techno, Hardcore and Big Beat music genres, which will inspire you to create your own basslines and rhythms for your compositions!

What's new in v1.4.0
- Multiple Output AUv3 plugin added (currently supported in AUM). Now there are two Pure Acid plugins in the system. In "Multiple Output" version, there is one Master bus and 5 additional output audio busses (6 outputs in total). You can assign Bass (and/or Drums) outputs to either MFX, or one of 6 output busses (Mixer section -> MFX/Bus channel buttons). Also, you can map individual drum outputs to any of these 6 busses (under the "Drum Set/Bus" switch). You can also assign send effects Fx A and Fx B outputs to any bus as well. Note, that MFX output is always being sent to the Master bus and cannot be mapped.
- fixed bug when under Cubasis 2, after using track Freeze feature, first note was omitted.
