The Tools of Acid (comparing Audiorealism, D16, Roland, and Ableton Live)

In this video we look at software emulations of the classic 303 and 909 sounds, particularly those by @audiorealism (ALB3 + ADM), @d16group (Phoscyon + Drumazon), @Roland Cloud (TB-303 + TR-909), and @Ableton Live’s native ways of achieving it too.
