Last year, Roger Linn Design released AdrenaLinn Sync, a software plug-in that provides the same unique beat-synced filter modulation and sequencing effects of the AdrenaLinn III guitar pedal, plus quite a bit more. Now they have released AdrenaLinn Sync Version 2, a completely rewritten and dramatic improvement over the original. And it’s free to all purchasers of the original version.

AdrenaLinn Sync Version 2 is written in conjunction with Way Out Ware, makers of TimeWArp2600 and KikAxxe, critically-acclaimed emulations of vintage Arp analog synthesizers. Version 2 takes advantage of Way Out Ware’s flawless analog-modeled filters and audio processing technology, resulting in a very wide variety of truly exciting, unique and inspiring sounds.

With AdrenaLinn Sync Version 2, all the special capabilities of AdrenaLinn Sync—simultaneous filter/volume/pan modulation, Snap To Scale, randomness probability controls, tube-modeled distortion, 8 bar stereo delay with delay loops, noise beats, synth loops and more—really shine.

Key changes in AdrenaLinn Sync Version 2:

  • Vastly improved Filters: Warm, full & accurate analog-modeled Lowpass, Bandpass, Highpass, Flanger and Phaser, created in collaboration with Way Out Ware, makers of the highly-acclaimed software emulations of vintage Arp synthesizers, TimeWArp 2600 and KikAxxe. The quality and variety of both conventional and unusual tones is remarkable.
  • Completely rewritten to replace Cycling 74’s Pluggo technology. This adds compatibility with all DAWs including Cubase and also Ableton Live while running Max For Live.
  • A sexy—but very functional—new look, rendered in true 3D to emulate the look of AdrenaLinn III’s knobs, buttons and panel.
  • All new presets—beautiful and inspiring—that truly show off the new sound capabilities.

The Mac AU/VST version of AdrenaLinn Sync Version 2 is available now, with Mac RTAS and Windows VST/RTAS coming soon.

AdrenaLinn Sync Version 2 may be purchased online, directly from Roger Linn Design, for $99. Owners of the original version will receive an email this week containing a free upgrade to version 2.
