Synapse Audio Releases Dune 2

Synapse Audio has released Dune 2, which they say was rewritten from scratch, in order to provide a yet higher sound quality and allow for an even wider range of sounds. New oscillators, new filters, new effects and graphical envelopes are just some of the new additions.

A spokesperson told us, "With a maximum reserve of 8320 oscillators at full polyphony, DUNE 2 is a true unison monster, unlikely to ever run out of oscillators."

DUNE 2 is available as 32-/64-bit VST/AU plugin for Windows and Mac OS X.


  • VA, Wavetable and FM Synthesis
  • Two oscillator stacks with 32 oscillators each
  • Third oscillator and noise generator
  • 8x Unison = up to 520 oscillators per note!
  • 16 voices of polyphony = up to 8320 oscillators total
  • Zero-delay feedback filters
  • Four graphical envelopes (MSEG)
  • Modulation matrix for synth and FX parameters
  • Two Master FX busses with 9 high-quality effects each
  • Innovative Arpeggiator with MIDI file import


Pricing and Availability:
$169 (upgrade from Dune: $79)
