Beyond Analogue – 8 Voice Polyphonic Virtual-Analogue Synthesizer

COBALT 8 baut auf der Tradition warmer und druckvoller Synthesizer-Sounds im analogen Stil auf, die von legendären Synthesizern aus der Vergangenheit entwickelt wurden, und erschliesst das volle kreative Potenzial analoger Wellenformen.

Dieses kraftvolle, inspirierende Instrument erfindet die Ästhetik analoger Klänge neu und lädt Musiker, Produzenten und Sounddesigner ein, eine neue Ära virtuell-analoger Synthesizer-Texturen zu erkunden, die weit über die Grenzen seiner analogen Vorfahren hinausgeht.
