Audiokit has kicked off a series of limited edition iOS apps by releasing Bass 808, a new Roland-inspired synth that’s designed for creating custom sub-bass and kick sounds.
Taking inspiration from hardware synth manufacturers who release their products in limited numbers, Audiokit says that Bass 808 will be available for eight weeks only. It operates standalone and as an AUv3 plugin and comes with more than 100 presets, weighing in at less than 20MB.
Tweakable parameters include pitch modulation, glide, distortion, bit crushing, super sustain, low-pass filter and super-smash limiter.
Bass 808 costs $2.99/£2.99 and is available now from the Apple App Store. Audiokit says that the next limited-edition app (there will be 10 in all) will be free.
