OVERVIEW

Some of the finest in analog sounds.

The original Ultra Analog is the popular and highly acclaimed virtual analog synth by Applied Acoustics. Boasting fat, alias-free oscillators with hard sync, sub oscillators and integrated pitch envelopes, its unique character comes courtesy of two ballsy multimode filters with multiple drive and distortion options. Now AAS has reinvented Ultra Analog with version VA-3, featuring all of the same features and character of the original, but with scores of enhancements.

Ultra Analog performs as a unique and powerful synth that is fast, easy, and remarkably versatile.
