TAL-BassLine-101 is a monophonic bass synthesizer and a very accurate emulation of the popular SH 101. The GUI is intuitive and easy to use. It produces the raw sound you know from analogue devices without any effects.
Its 24dB zero feedback delay low pass filter has a very smooth and authentic sound without any digital artifacts, especially designed and calibrated for extreme settings. It sounds even smooth with a lot resonance and a high oscillator pitch where most emulations fail.
Details as envelope transitions between overlapping notes are carefully modeled. The oscillators do not use any samples. TAL-BassLine-101 generates all wave-forms in real time. Filter-FM allows it to choose an oscillator waveform as modulation source for the filter cutoff. This additional feature can be used to create a wide range of new sounds.
- Self resonating zero feedback delay filter (24dB LP).
- Filter-FM modulation.
- Calibrated and tuned after our hardware device.
- Midi learn / automation for all controls.
- Alias free oscillators for an authentic sound also @ 44'100Hz sampling rate.
- Arpeggiator with different sync modes (host, midi clock, not on).
- Original (RC) and linear portamento mode.
- Built in arpeggiator with some additional modes.
- Powerful step sequencer with up to 96 steps and recording option.
- 6 voice poly mode.
- Sequencer MIDI export with drag and drop.
- Sequencer / arpeggiator MIDI out for VSTi version.
- De-Clicker mode for slower envelopes :/
- More than 300 presets.
- All sample rates supported.
Review by The Deckwrecka:
Review by buenasideas.de (German):
Hardware vs TAL-BassLine-101 envelope demo recorded @ 44.1kHz. Hardware and software alternate after each note. The hardware device starts. Every attack sounds different. This is related to the free running VCO and the reason we play every note more than once in this demo, otherwise it would not be possible to compare the envelope attack.
Hardware vs TAL-BassLine-101 envelope arpeggiator demo recorded @ 44.1kHz. The hardware plays a sequence. In the middle of each sequence the software starts to play the same arpeggiator pattern.
Hardware vs TAL-BassLine-101 recorded @ 44.1kHz. The audio demo always plays a short sequence played with the hardware device followed by the plugin that plays the same sequence or sound again.
TAL-BassLine-101 FM-Filter shows some crazy FM sounds.
