So I've tried to use Transistor Bass as a synth...

Greetings fellow musicians,

I've tried two things with Transistor Bass: lengthening one note of Transistor Bass to more than approx. one bar and shaping the envelope to more than TB is allowing for a more sustained output like "EEEEEAAAAAOOOOW" instead of "EAOOOOOW".

To achieve this I turned the Decay knob to the max, deselected the build-in sequencer for Piano Roll control and draw a longer note (2 bars) - to almost no effect at all. Slowing down the projects tempo to half speed didn't effect the audible length of the note, but as I later noticed, the Option Gate Length does to a certain point.

Also the envelope didn't satisfy my needs (I know it's modelled on the Roland TB-303 which didn't come with Attack, Release or Sustain), so I've tried a few things to cheat around it:

  • Had a look for more ADSR options in the Miscellaneous settings of Transistor Bass, but they don't exist
  • Included Gross Beat with the 1/2 speed setting, which did the trick somehow, but sounded... well.. gross
  • Tried out even more mixer effects like Patcher
  • Consolidated the Pattern, stretched the sample and -as one might expect- it also sounded gross. Also no ADSR settings on the sample's channel
  • I've searched for a possibility to include an ADSR controller to the associated mixer track, but didn't found one. I also recognized I'm not the first one searching for this at all
  • Googled a lot


TL/DR: I want to use the cool sounds of Transistor Bass as a synth. Anybody got an idea how to achieve my desired effects -lengthening one note to more than ~one bar and shaping the envelope?

Many thanks in advance

You could layer it with an Envelope Controller ...
