New Clean And Modern Interface? Yes, Learn The Synth Sounds Faster
Synth Anthology 2 provides deep sound editing capability in a clear and easy-to-use interface. This means users can quickly browse, tweak, edit, effect, modulate and layer sounds from any synth. Unlike hardware synthesizers, which require you to learn drastically different front-panel controls and menu systems, with Synth Anthology 2 there's only one. Leaning to use it is fast and painless.
The departure from look-a-like GUI design is a bold move however I for one am very pleased to see that UVI have considered the new modern GUI with ease of use in mind.
What Does Synth Anthology 2 Deliver?
Synth Anthology 2 delivers a large collection of sounds from a huge variety of synthesizers touching every major manufacturer and synthesis type, covering large and small productions ranging from the early 70s to today. Presets in SA2 have been lovingly designed on the original hardware and treated through an exceptional chain of processors including EQs, compressors and effects from Manley, Langevin, Lexicon, Publison, Focusrite, SPL and more giving each sound a mastered touch.
