PRESS RELEASE — Linköping, Sweden — Imagine traveling in time to the early ’70s, an era where new and experimental sounds were shaping pop music and taking it a step further. Softube’s Model 72 Synthesizer System is your vintage synth time machine. It’s component modeled down to the smallest details from a 1972 hardware unit in pristine condition with all the quirks and non-linearities intact, hence the name Model 72.
The result is incredibly authentic sound, with all the warmth and smoothness heard in countless records. Now imagine this classic has traveled into the future to pick up some contemporary features, like doubling and stereo spread, and evolve into a full system with multiple versions for different applications. Wish you were here? Take the Autobahn.
As a full system, Model 72 allows producers to create some very unique sounds on several different platforms. All of these are included:
Model 72 Instrument
Use the instrument plug-in on instrument channels to create the original sounds this synth is known for with a connected MIDI controller, the built-in keyboard, or editing notes in your DAW.
Model 72 FX
Using the synth as an effect by running an external sound source to the external audio input is a common use case heard on countless albums from the ’70s to today. Add the FX plug-in to your audio or mix track to replicate this external input feature and use the distortions and filter on your sound source.
Modular Ready: 7 modules for Softube Modular
All the Model 72 Instrument sections are available as individual modules for Softube Modular, ready to be added to your Eurorack system. It’s easy to combine single parts of the synthesizer in a modular workflow to build patches and get authentic vintage monophonic sounds.
Amp Room Ready
The Model 72 Amp Room module consists of the fat sounding filter from this legendary synthesizer complete with envelope follower, cutoff, resonance, and drive. Create truly unique sounds for guitar, bass, and keyboards with a vintage vibe with this incredible envelope filter effect.
The Softube Model 72 Synthesizer System is available now for $159, with an intro price of $99 until October 29. It requires macOS 10.12, an AU, VST, or AAX plugin host, and an iLok account.
