Twisted Electrons Announces Acid8 MKIII


Following on from our story about the hapiNES L chiptune synth, Twisted Electrons has announced a new version of another of their products - the Acid8 MKIII.

A spokesperson had this to say…

MKIII has been rethought from the ground up.  The filter has been replaced with an new all digital one, the handling 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 slimsynth uAcid8 counterpart, but with the addition of hardware MIDI and analog sync in and out connectivity and packed in a rugged metal case.

A vst plugin is available to easily take control of the synth’s parameters.
