Arturia Intros Analog Factory

Arturia AnalogArturia has announced Analog Factory, a virtual instrument that comes loaded with 2000 legendary synthesizer sounds that have shaped modern music production.

The intuitive interface includes a smart Preset Manager that allows in just a few clicks to find desired sounds from within the huge preset collection.

But Analog Factory is not only a collection of sounds. Since it is based on synthesis, all sounds are dramatically modifiable. A set of the most essential parameters provides the user with an efficient way to tweak and alter the sonic character of the sound.

Analog Factory has been developed with TAE , Arturia’s award winning proprietary technology for analog emulation, which guarantees an unprecedented accuracy in analog modelling.

  • Organize Presets view by Name, Instrument, Type, CPU usage, Favorites, or User Presets.
  • Straight forward Editing, with the most essential parameters for personalizing presets: (Filter and LFO sections, 4 Key Parameters differing for each preset, Chorus & Delay mix, ADSR envelope)
  • 8 SNAPSHOTS buttons (quickly store up to 8 snapshots for sound comparisons, variations…)
  • Integrates as a plug-in within your sequencer, on Mac and PC, or plays as a stand- alone software synthesizer.
