The Plugiator from Use Audio is a plug-in based sound module, light weight and very portable, that can emulate different synthesizer architectures. Based on "Virtual Circuit Modeling" technology, the plug-ins and the hardware have been designed to model the exact behavior and deliver the same powerful sound as the original hardware, while maintaining all the depth, dynamics and the liveliness of the original sounds, without relying on playback of sampled sounds.

The hardware aspect of the synthesizer allows you to tweak any parameter and easily allows you to design new sounds from ground up. Its open and modular architecture, combined with Internet integration for quick browsing of online sounds, allows you to capture a whole world of sounds and take them anywhere without depending on a computer. Use your computer only for management of your sounds. Great plug-in technology just became light-weight and portable.

Note! Additional plug-ins are available for purchase to further upgrade the instrument
