For fans of real analog synthesis who no longer own their beloved
synths or prefer the convience of MIDI control, Analog to Digital have created
affordable solutions in PC VST format.
The Reincarnation series is a set of sample-based synths which allow the user
to change the filter level with a keyboard mod wheel and select resonance levels.
It can even recreate glitch-free analog filter sweeps.
The first releases in the Reincarnation series emulate the Roland TB303, MC202
and Juno 106. Recreations of the Korg MS-10 and Music and More MB-33 are planned.
Reincarnation series instruments feature:
- As many as 99 samples per preset
- 36 different presets with their own samples
- ADSR envelope Unison mode (up to 16 voices) with detune
- Pitch bend, glide with mono mode, vibrato (with adjustable speed),
- Effects: ring modulator, tempo synced double delay with filter and feedback
and a digital filter (has low pass, high pass, band pass and notch modes)
with cutoff and resonance controls.
Also available from the company is Supersaw Plus, a 16-voice polyphonic analog-modeled
VST instrument synthesizer with an effects section (reverb, delay and chorus).
It is designed to create fat sounds very much like the classic Roland JP-8000
synth, particularly the supersaw. There are also square, triangle and pwm oscillators.
Major knobs on all synths can be controlled from MIDI and all come with PDF
Analog to Digital is offering introductory pricing of $20 ( 11, 16 euros)
per synth (normal price $25), or all four synths can be had for $50.
