Retrologue, formerly available only in Cubase, aims to deliver voltage-controlled analog synth sounds 11/07/12
Steinberg has released its virtual analog synthesizer, Retrologue, first introduced in Cubase 6.5, as a plug-in compatible with VST 3, VST 2 and AU hosts.
Matthias Quellmann, product marketing manager at Steinberg, told Sonic State, "The response from customers using Retrologue in Cubase 6.5 has been overwhelming. With today's release, users of any DAW supporting the VST or AU format will have access the warmth and sophistication of this timeless sound."
Steinberg tells us that Retrologue houses two oscillators, each with a maximum of eight widely detunable voices, one sub and one noise oscillator, alongside a dozen high-quality filter types as well as 300 presets. Also on board are two LFOs and two ADSR envelopes. With the ten-stage Modulation Matrix, users can assign modulation sources to vary the targets' values, also supporting modulation assignments from Note Expression, Steinberg's groundbreaking way of editing controller data.
