AESNYC07: Analog Experience

Arturia has announced Analog Factory Experience which they are calling the first hybrid synthesizer. They say that, by combining a native software application and a dedicated controller-keyboard, Analog Factory Experience offers a straightforward, innovative and enjoyable experience.
Based on the Analog Factory 2.0, a software instrument offering 3500 legendary synthesizer sounds, Analog Factory Experience includes a high quality 32-key MIDI keyboard. Using it is a simple matter of plugging in the keyboard via USB and launching the software - everything being easily controllable from the keyboard. Arturia say that the user experience is the same as on a traditional Hardware synthesizer, except that Analog Factory Experience brings much more sounds, a better integration within DAW’s, and provides it all at a far better price.

Frédéric Brun, President of Arturia, told us, "Analog Factory Experience is a synthesizer of a new kind. Part Hardware, part Software, it offers advantages from both worlds. No surprise it is the fruit of a partnership Arturia set-up with the Hardware manufacturer CME. Capitalizing on CME's expertise in the field of keyboard production was a unique opportunity to bring to the market the right product at the right price."
Zhao Yitian, President of CME, had this to add, "We are happy to partner with Arturia to bring such a unique integrated system to musicians. It is an intuitive, simple and yet very powerful solution. We hope that Analog Factory Experience will be a key to open a new world in the computer Music Industry."
