UVI has announced PX Apollo – a new software synth, based on a rare synthesizer prototype from the early ‘70s, of which only 2 are known to exist. (aka, the Moog Apollo).

UVI notes:

The PX Apollo project represents an enormous effort and commitment to quality on many levels.

Due to the components available at the time of their design, early polyphonic synthesizers were and remain particularly susceptible to failure and require continued maintenance.
