I used to use Reason with Ableton Live just so I could run the ABL2 VST. When I saw that ABL2 was released for Reason Extensions I tried moving some of the patterns I’d made on the VST version over to the RE version. I found that there are some differences between the two especially with accented notes when drive and distortion is used which means the patterns in the two versions can sound quite different sometimes. I tried adjusting the settings to get patterns to match but there is a definite wet clicking or popping sound with the RE version. If anyone knows where to post audio I could upload some examples.
Also, it seems like the RE version’s filter is set to what would be the maximum in the VST version if you changed the VCF Freq setting in Preferences/ Emulation, the VST is able to go much lower. Could those settings be incorporated into a future release of the RE version?
Anyone else notice this? I’m wondering if it’s just a difference between the sound engines of Reason and Live.

Hi Jirugi,

We're constantly tweaking the 303 engine, and comparing directly between different versions isn't always going to result in the exact sound. We always try to keep all products updated with the latest DSP. The Rack Extension could use a few more tweakables, perhaps we can add a range knob on the back side, so that's something we'll consider for sure..!

I have both VST and RE, and I feel the VST does sound better. I also hear the click sound in the RE, but I figured it was the VCA click that can be disabled within the VST settings. For me, disabling that annoying noise makes the VST sound great. Maybe you could add a switch on the back of the RE for disabling the VCA click.

Hi damonew,
We can reduce the click in the ABL2 RE if that is desired. The original 303 is quite clicky though. Have you tried using a noise gate or similar on it?

Hmm. None of these VSTi are very interesting, there are definitely better for scholarship essay writing help ones, IMO. But good read.

Mike,

It would be great if you include a knob to control the click in the RE, and provide the ability to turn it off completely. It might be true to the device, but it is really distracting. I'll try using a noise gate, but I know how great the ABL2 sounds without the click from the VST version. Please update the RE to include that feature! :)
