Arturia Acid V – 50% off until Friday

Arturia Acid V features a circuit-accurate remodelling of the iconic 303, giving you a raw, biting, and punchy sound that defined dance music in the ’80s and ’90s.

With modern updates including an advanced sequencer, multi-mode distortion, quick-fire modulation, and more, Acid V goes above and beyond the hardware original for a fraction of the cost.

In our review of Acid V, we praised its “gorgeous acid sound”, “hidden fine-tuning parameters” and “extensive modulation section”, writing: “It’s squelchy and meaty and will certainly satisfy your acid cravings.”

Take advantage of this fantastic half-price discount, available until Friday 8 March, at Plugin Boutique.

D16 Group Phoscyon 2 – 50% off until Thursday

While Acid V emulates the sonics for the 303 beautifully, Phoscyon 2 by D16 Group takes the concept of a 303 emulation to new heights by adding tons of new features only possible in software.

Offering access to not just one, but every modded version of the TB-303, Phoscyon 2 lets you replicate the distinctive character of each unit using Calibration Parameters. Dive deep into the synth’s inner workings with access to service trim pots and tweaks, unlocking a new dimension of control and musical expression.

There’s also an advanced effects chain, an intuitive sequencer/arpeggiator, and a variety of trigger modes so you can shape your acid bassline in a variety of exciting ways.
