  • DCO-106, a stunning recreation of the much-loved Juno-106 polysynth of the 80’s.
  • CA2600, a powerful, self-contained duophonic synthesizer inspired by the groundbreaking ARP 2600 synthesizer.
  • Surrealistic MG-1 Plus Synthesizer, a recreation of the Moog MG-1 synthesizer sold in Radio Shack stores in 80s.
  • Polymode, inspired by the Moog Polymoog synthesizer, one of the world’s first polyphonic synthesizers.
  • Eight Voice, an emulation of the immense Oberheim Eight Voice, one of the world’s rarest and most desirable vintage instruments.
  • PS-20, an “ultra-realistic, polyphonic, hot-rodded tribute” to Korg’s renowned MS-20.
  • Memorymode, based upon the Memorymoog, one of the very best-sounding polyphonic programmable analog synthesizers of the 80s.
  • Mercury-4, a detailed emulation of one of the best-sounding and quirkiest polyphonic synthesizers of the late 1970’s, the Roland Jupiter-4.
  • Quadra, a reimagining of one of the quirkiest, rarest, and most curiosity-inspiring vintage synthesizers of all time, the 1978 ARP Quadra.
  • Dreamsynth, a tribute to the celebrated hybrid analog/digital synthesizers of the mid-to-late 1980s.
  • Miniverse, a virtual emulation of the granddaddy of all portable synthesizers focused on a single principle: absolute authenticity.
  • Lowdown recreates the super-fat, room-rattling sounds of the most legendary dual-oscillator bass pedal synth ever made.
  • Elka-X, based upon the legendary Synthex, a rare Italian analog synth manufactured by ELKA in the early eighties.
  • Sines, an original polyphonic synthesizer that utilizes diverse waveshaping methods to bend pure waveforms into infinitely variable and complex shapes.
  • GX-80, Cherry Audio’s visionary flagship synthesizer that combines the sound and features of the fabled Yamaha GX-1 “Dream Machine” and its renowned descendant, the CS-80.

  1. Looks great! I’ll investigate once the bleeding of my Visa from my most recent Black Friday extravaganza stops.

  2. Clearly, if you don’t already own almost everything in the package, I suppose this is a pretty good deal. However, between all of the discounted sales by the plug-in pushers, where many of the instruments have been available for as low as $19, I can’t see this being a big money maker for Cherry.

  3. Dreamsynth, Miniverse, Lowdown, Elka-X, Sines, GX-80 – cool for the price of $101 (upgrade from SynthStack 2). One just have a patient through calendar year to avoid purchasing individual synths.
    In near 3 years Cherry could beat Arturia!
