Arturia Intros 303-Inspired Acid V, ‘A Mutated Classic’


Arturia today introduced Acid V, a virtual instrument that offers their take on the classic Roland TB-303 sound.

Why another virtual 303, especially when Behringer offers a hardware 303 knockoff for around $130?

Acid V offers an ‘evolved sequencer’ that’s designed to be easy to use and to integrate intelligently with your DAW.

Arturia says that Acid V is designed to bring the classic acid sound into the modern production era. They say that they’ve combined component-level modeling to accurately capture the originals sound, and married that to upgraded features & effects, to deliver ‘a mutated classic’.


  • Evolved sequencer & arpeggiator
  • Advanced Modulation system for evolving sounds
  • Built-in Distortion
  • Sub Oscillator and vibrato
  • Scales and Transmutation
  • 17x High grade effects

Other features include vibrato that lets you get into FM territory, 14 distortion algorithms, an easy-to-use step sequencer, and the ability to drag and drop your sequences into your DAW.

Here’s an in-depth look at Acid V and it’s capabilities:
