  • 1Description

The Ultra Analog VA-2 from Applied Acoustic Systems is a virtual analog synthesizer with a preset library created by professional sound designers that represents the complete analog spectrum, from vintage synthesizers to modern virtual analog recreations. To get the best from these sounds the software is packed with performance features: poly or monophonic with note priority keyboard modes, up-to-4-voice unison, portamento and glide functions, tap tempo and sync to host clock options, and a complete set of MIDI features. And thanks to a categorized browser and ergonomic interface, finding sounds is quick and easy.

Sounds are generated using two alias-free, wide-range oscillators with sub and hard sync skills in sine, saw, and square/pulse wave shapes. An arpeggiator offers various syncing resolutions, playing algorithms and rhythmic patterns that can spruce up any chord progressions. Ultra Analog VA-2's envelopes are presented as familiar ADSRs, but with strapped on organically decaying time parameter as well as loop and re-trig options. Two filter stages allow any combination of low-pass, high-pass, band-pass, notch, and formant types in both series and parallel routing for an exceptional amount of flexibility.

What's New
  • Renewed factory library has over 600 production-ready sounds classified for fast and intuitive exploration
  • Compressor and equalizer add punch and definition to your sound, letting you cut through any dense mix or stage
  • Output limiter protects your ears and monitors during experimentation with the synthesizer's parameters
  • Streamlined interface redesigned from the ground up divides the instrument into three panels - Play presents shortcuts to the performance and effect parameters including bypass switches for quick edits; Edit lets you tweak and create your sound; FX supplies equalizer, compressor, multi-effect, and reverb processors
  • Bank and program manager allows simple and efficient organization, backup, and sharing of your sounds
  • Native 64-bit Audio Units, VST, and AAX plug-ins
  • Runs in native 64-bit on Mac OS X and Windows making it compatible with the latest sequencers
  • Sound designer Richard Devine collection of 110 presets
  • Updated effects
  • Six-hundred presets spread over twelve categories
  • Standalone operation for quick jams and experimentations
  • Real-time control over any parameters via your MIDI controller knobs, faders, and switches
  • MIDI clock, tap, and host tempo synchronization for effects and modulations
  • Relaxed editing with unlimited undo/redo capability
  • Sound manipulation at the source core
  • Presets load in a flash
  • Effects include a compressor, equalizer, delay, distortion, phaser, chorus, flanger, wah wah and notch filters, and reverb
  • Smooth dynamics due to absence of velocity layers
  • Small memory footprint
