Twolegs Toneworks has released Analogue Explorations, a collection of 64 carefully programmed analogue type sounds for Applied Acoustics Systems Ultra Analog VA-2 synth.
The soundset is not aimed at any particular style or genre, but provides a sound-palette easily adapted in any type of electronic music – spanning the spectre from deep dub-techno, D’n’B, IDM, chip to funky house.
This pack contains a broad variety of analogue type sounds programmed with small amounts of drift and plenty of analog grit – of which this synth has plenty. You’ll find basses ranging from funky synth basses to bombastic sub-basses – and pads ranging from soft baby tissue to sweeping textured wonders. There’s also a range of lead-synths well suited for the odd melody-line or a full solo-riff. Ultra Analog VA-2 doesn’t allow too much action to be applied through the mod-wheel, but there’s added vibrato for most sounds.
The true bonus in this soundset is the percussive sounds and the instant atmosphere creating sound effects, which in some cases can make up the basis of an entire dub techno track.
Te soundset is available to purchase for the introductory price of $9.95 USD until March 31st, 2014 (regular $14.95 USD).
Twolegs Toneworks is also offering a 50% discount on its other soundsets in its Spring Sale, which lasts until March 31st, 2014.

2 Complete new sound-banks for Korg PolySix.
The PolySix is a classic and Korg did a great job of porting it to the PolySix software version.
The PolySix stands as one of the most authentic hardware
emulations ever made which so many recent synths attempt to emulate.
The presets heard in this video are from the new collection called, “Cold Fusion”.
These presets are designed to bring out the classic hardware sound from the original Korg PolySix.
Included in this collection are:
Classic style Apegs
Extremely Fat basses
Vintage and very warm pads.
Unique synth FX reminiscent of the electronic period that the PolySix was released in.
The Korg PolySix software version is one of those, “best kept secrets”.
This is partly due to the fact that it was initially released with so few presets.
VintageSynthPads.com has released this collection with the original Korg PolySix hardware in mind.
The presets are very analog, warm and fat, not to mention affordable.
Be sure to check them out.
