Emulations Need Not Apply

No matter how many variables you try to emulate in software there's still something unmistakable about the sound of a real hardware synth, from subtle differences between analog voices to the varied ways different filters bite into your sound; there's a distinct character and energy. Synth Anthology 2 delivers the authentic and uncompromising hardware sound with all the conveniences of a modern software instrument.

So Much Of A Good Thing

There's no such thing as "too much" when it comes to hardware synths. They all have their own unique creative visions, innovations, sonic character and peculiarities. Whatever you're looking for, from analog to digital, vintage classic to future classic, you'll likely find it here. With Synth Anthology 2 you get access to an unprecedented collection of hardware synthesizers, every major manufacturer, every type of synthesis, every era, 77 synthesizers in all. Yamaha, Oberheim, Sequential Circuits, PPG, Korg, Casio, ARP, Waldorf, NED, Access, Kawai and more. Load up unique multisampled patches to use in your own sound design or tweak and layer them to make your own.

Sonic Perfection

While the differences between hardware and emulation can be discernible the difference between a straight signal and mastered recording can be night and day. With Synth Anthology 2 our sound designers worked through a magnificent rig of hardware processors including EQs, compressors and effects from Manley, Langevin, Lexicon, Publison, Focusrite, SPL and more. Each patch was hand-crafted and sculpted to perfection, accentuating the natural sounds of the synthesizers with a mastered finish.

Master Of One, Master Of All

Synth Anthology 2 provides deep sound editing capability in a clear and easy-to-use interface. This means you can quickly browse, tweak, edit, effect, modulate and layer sounds from any synth any way you want to. And unlike hardware synthesizers, which require you to learn drastically different front-panel controls and menu systems, with Synth Anthology 2 there's only one. Learning to use it is fast and painless, and once you do that knowledge will translate seamlessly across the entire suite.

"I literally didn’t want to take my headphones off the entire time in case I missed a subtle, modulated tail or some LFO’d filter that might suddenly appear during the body of a sound."
