Analog circuitries and vintage warmth

At the heart of this cutting instrument are two carefully modeled oscillators each with up to eight detunable voices alongside an earth-shattering sub and noise oscillator. Packed into a straightforward interface, Retrologue brings back the sound of analog circuitries and vintage warmth.

“This is coming from a true analogue synth nerd: Retrologue is by far the best sounding and most versatile virtual synth I’ve tried... loving it!”
— Jori Hulkkonen, DJ and producer


OSC, filter and effects

While several oscillator modes allows anything from basic synthesis waveforms over sync and cross modulation to multi waveforms, the built-in excellent 12 different filter flavours features an integrated distortion unit to either produce analog tube overdrive or hard clipping effects.
Add that classy two-stage effect section comprising of modulation and delay modules to pimp your sounds. Two envelopes and two LFOs are ready to modulate a large number of destination parameters, which are accessible via the luxorious modulation matrix with its 10 freely assignable targets.
Thanks to full VST 3.5 support, Note Expression modulation assignments can be directly addressed from within Cubase!

Extensive sound library included

Retrologues extensive preset library features 300 presets and comes with timeless and modern synthesizer sounds — from heavy weight monophonic basses and razor-sharp leads to driving grooves and polyphonic stabs. The sounds are equally suited for phunky keyboard solos as phat dubstep bass lines and imbedd smoothly in your mix.
