Admiral Quality - Poly-Ana 1.0


1.00 - 2007-04-02

* Evaluation Reset! If you already tried it in Beta you can try it again for another free week!
* Rearranged presets and added 58 new, for a complete bank of 128 presets. More soundbanks will be made available soon on our site, FREE!
* Changed Auth box text prompt
* Fixed program name not updating on host when program or bank loaded
* Fixed .pap and .pab program loading problems with patches saved from non-compliant hosts with >24 character names
* Moved Auth dialog into resume function to prevent crashes, hung audio drivers, when loading projects in some hosts while Poly-Ana is unauthorized
* Added file overwrite confirmation to program and bank file save dialogs
* Fixed "short circuit" bug between Env2->Env3

Poly-Ana is finally here! 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.


* New GUI Options: new background colors available, optional tooltips, and option to replace Mod Source dials with drop-down lists.
* Maximum 12 note polyphony featuring unison, voice detune and a unique poly-unison mode!
* Three oscillators per voice!
* Two filters per voice, 12/24 dB/Oct, LPF/HPF, can be run in parallel or in series allowing for additional multi-mode capability!
* Filter Resonance Modulation. Rarely offered on other synths!
* Stereo signal path throughout the voice. Poly-Ana produces dramatic stereo effects without using any tacked-on delay or chorus effects!
* All voice parameters always visible and accessible with a single click!
* GUI controls that work like the real-world items, like automatic knob detents and single-click toggles!
* Unique modulation routing scheme! All the power of modular without the tedious complications of using patch cables or a modulation matrix.
* Waveform "morphing" creates smooth transitions between oscillator waveforms beyond simple cross-fading!
* Waveform Mod automatically morphs oscillator waveforms!
* PWM for ALL oscillator waveforms!
* Noise Sync. Oscillators can sync to noise source as well as normal pitched tones!
* Two LFOs per voice with retriggering! Allows separate phase for each voice's LFOs.
* Full Host-Sync for LFOs with adjustable phase offset!
* Three ADSR envelopes per voice with adjustable curves!
* Two Modulation Mixers allow for complex combinations of modulation sources!
* Unique, oversampled voice engine sounds more like real analog than any soft-synth you've heard yet!
* Quality control lets you reduce Poly-Ana's CPU power requirements while recording performances.
* MIDI CC# mapping of all controls.
* Automatic MIDI guitar controller support for 6 channel control in MIDI "Mono" mode..
* VST instrument AND VST effect versions! Effect version can process external audio and/or use external audio as a modulation source!.
