Since years it has been the aim of developers to bring the best “virtual analog” synths. However these products are at best mere approximations of what happens in the real world. We set out to create not just another substractive synthesizer, but one that truly represents the sound of analog hardware. Our experts with 25 years of experience carefully modeled the circuits of many expensive performance synthesizers. We even included measurements of single capacitors and resistors to provide an extremely accurate analog model.
At the heart of Saurus are its high-end quality oscillators employing our True Analog Modeling Technology , which produces a warm characteristic sound reminiscent of the hardware units from the past.
With pulse width modulation, oscillator sync, AM & FM noise modulation and oscillator drift an extremely broad range of sounds can be dialed-in.
Taking things even further, Saurus offers a selection of both standard as well as a large number of oscillator types from exotic and hard-to-get synths to choose from, no more being limited to just 3 basic waveforms!
No analog sound would be complete without an excellent filter capable of sounding both lush when needed or screaming when over driven.
Analog-esque filters are far from perfect, suffering from distortion, noise, phase shift and self-oscillation, but it is exactly these imperfections that gives them more character than their sterile sounding digital counterparts. Which is why Saurus comes with a filter section modeled after a variety of the most famous analog filters, with precisely modeled non-linearity and self-oscillation to make them sound every bit as full of character as its core sound.
To top it all off the filter section also includes FM, feedback and an analog modeled distortion for that little extra grit.
