analog factory experience

Arturia has introduced Analog Factory Experience, an interesting virtual synth/control-surface combo based on Analog Factory 2.0. The package comes with a 32-key, custom-made, MIDI keyboard.

Features:

  • 3500 analog synthesizer sounds that have defined the sound of modern music. All presets are carefully selected from the Arturia Classic Synths (minimoog V, Moog Modular V, CS-80V, ARP 2600 V, Prophet V, Prophet VS and Jupiter-8V). These TAE(R) powered sounds offer unparalleled audio quality.
  • Fast filter the presets to your requirements: by Instrument, by Type (Bass, Pads, Leads) and/or by Characteristics (hard, soft, complex, simple, short, long), and find presets according to these filtered choices.
  • Organize Presets view by Name, Instrument, Type, CPU usage, Favorites, or User Presets. Straightforward 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), more….
  • Keyboard: 32 keys with velocity. Controllers: 1 clickable encoder, 10 encoders, 4 sliders, 11 switches, 1 modulation wheel, 1 pitch bend wheel. Connectors: Hold, Sustain, Expression. The keyboard is based on CME’s ultra-thin velocity sensitive 25 key mechanism offered in a high quality case.

Availability

Priced at US$349, the first production batch will be delivered mid-November 2007.

  1. This looks really good, I always fancied the Anaolg Factory but maybe this could help persuade me (software is all well and good, but an extra bit of hardware is always more exciting!) It depends on the build quality of the keyboard: velocity sensitive and weighted is excellent news, well done Arturuia/CME! Aftertouch? If the keyboard is good quality then it would also be useful as an extra controller keyboard. I’m waiting for reviews…

  2. The idea of a virtual synth/controller combo has been kicked around a lot by several companies, but none have been complete winners. This looks pretty hot, though. I’m looking forward to trying this out.
