Applied Acoustics Systems has released an all-new version of its award-wining analog synthesizer plug-in. Ultra Analog VA-2 ships with a new streamlined interface, a new equalizer and compressor module, a new multi-effect processor, brings native 64-bit operation on Mac OS X, and more. The factory library has been redesigned with more than 600 presets including a sound bank by renowned sound designer Richard Devine.
“Ultra Analog VA-2 is a simple and straightforward synthesizer. Yet, its clever design makes it surprisingly powerful and versatile,” says Marc-Pierre Verge, CEO of Applied Acoustics Systems, “We wanted a synthesizer that could cover the whole analog spectrum, from vintage to modern. With its new interface, complete effect section, and expanded library, it is more than ever a complete solution for analog sounds.”
On the Mac, Ultra Analog VA-2 requires OS X 10.6 or later, an Intel Core processor or later, 512 MB of RAM, 70 MB of free hard drive space, and a minimum 1024 × 768 display resolution. Ultra Analog VA-2 runs on 32- and 64-bit host sequencers supporting the VST, Audio Unit, RTAS, and AAX Native plug-in formats.
Ultra Analog VA-2 is available now. The suggested retail price is $199, but until 3 November 2013, it is offered at the introductory price of $149. Upgrades are available to Ultra Analog VA-1 and Session users starting at $39.
