Admiral Quality - Poly-Ana v0.91 Release Candidate 2

Poly-Ana Beta 0.91 (RC2) is out today. An option for pitchbend smoothing has been added, and the legato trigger behavior (unison mode only) has been adjusted to not cause the clicking that was happening due to the sudden velocity level change of the legato-triggered note.

Poly-Ana 1.0 is scheduled for release on April 2, so this is the last month to take advantage of the Buy-in-Beta offer. Purchase Poly-Ana before April 2, 2007 to save $60 off the regular price of $129.95 (USD).


0.91 - 2007-03-02

* Legato triggering of unison sounds now maintains original note velocity. Eliminates clicks in patches like Bassmaster when played legato with varying velocity. Polyphonic sounds and/or sounds without Legato Trigger on will not be affected by this change.
* Added pitchbend smoothing and option to disable.

Get ready for a new experience in virtual analog synthesis! Poly-Ana uses a different approach than most other VA soft-synths which we feel delivers a sound more authentic to the early analog synths that inspired her features. This "brute-force" method admittedly requires more processing power than other common techniques, but is a far truer model of the functioning of real analog instruments. If you obsess over the quality of your sound like we do then you won't mind using a bit more CPU power to help get you closer to that real analog sound; a sound that so many other VA synths fall too-far short of. (Note that Poly-Ana also offers a Quality option to reduce CPU usage during performance-time at the expense of sound quality.) Poly-Ana's voice architecture is an ambitious combination of all the best features of the famous analog classics, plus a few new features (totaling 185 controls!) which, while possible back in the day, would have been prohibitively expensive to implement in hardware. But as a software-only product, Poly-Ana doesn't face these limitations, and we held nothing back in designing our "ultimate analog dream synth". Combine this with a classic styled design that puts every parameter a single click away, with large, easy to grab knobs and switches that behave like the real-world items; and with no hidden drill-down menus so that each and every control is prominently displayed out where you can see it; Poly-Ana offers a true alternative in software synthesis.
