Acid8 on the go!

µAcid8 is a portable 8Bit bass-line synthesizer borrowing the characterful wavetable engine from acid8 and the essential elements of its highly praised step sequencer.

µAcid8 features some new tricks including transposition automation, filter wobbler, stutter and vinyl spin-down effects.

µAcid8 requires only two AAA batteries and can be synced to external instruments and pocket operators.
