PRESS RELEASE — Linköping, Sweden — The makers of Model 72 and Model 84 have taken a ’90s techno wunderkind off the street and into the DAW. Suffice it to say, the most-used mono synth of its time makes the perfect addition to Softube’s growing family of soft synths. Behold the Model 82 Sequencing Mono Synth!
The original hardware shuffled into people’s hearts via second-hand- and discount bins. The raw sound and unique sequencer and arpeggio sections, plus straightforward operation, turned it into the must-have synth of the late 1980s and early 1990s.
Softube has expertly recreated the original circuitry and workflow to capture the original sound and interactions. The carefully remade sequencer and arpeggio sections preserve the inspirational, improvisational spirit of the hardware.
The added modern features of Model 82 include stereo doubling and a drive knob that users can employ to increase distortion and grit with greater ease. And the enhanced workflow means users can get that most-recognizable sound even faster.
Softube’s Model 82 Sequencing Mono Synth is available now for $99, with an introductory price of $79 until July 31. Use promo code RAVEANDSAVE to get Model 82 for $59 through July 7. It requires macOS 10.13 or later and an AU, VST, or AAX plugin host. Model 82 is Apple Silicon native for M1 and M2 processors.
