Arturia release Analog Factory
Following on from a string of successful analogue-modelling software synths, Arturia have announced the forthcoming release of another promising virtual instrument.
Analog Factory borrows sounds from Arturia’s other instruments and includes over 2000 presets from the Minimoog V, Moog Modular V, CS-80V, ARP 2600 V and Prophet V and VS software synths.
A neat graphical user interface displays preset settings and features level, filter, LFO, ADSR envelope, chorus and delay controls. For ease of use, there are also four Key Parameter knobs whose functions change according to each preset, as well as eight snapshot buttons, enabling quick A/B comparisons.
Analog Factory is compatible with Windows 2000 and XP and Mac OS X, including the new Intel-based Macs. It can run in stand-alone mode, using ASIO, Direct Sound or Core Audio, or can be used within a suitable host as a VST, Audio Units or RTAS plug-in.
