Software Description

VANGUARD is the long awaited replacement for your old 19" hardware gear which will remain unused after you´ve tried VANGUARD.

VANGUARD is a complete new product. reFX put all knowledge and experience that has been collected over the past years into this projects and the result is audible: virtual analog synthesis made a big step forward.

VANGUARD combines the good old analog synthesizer idea with the latest technology: all analog devices of classic synthesizers are emulated by high-quality DSP (digital signal processing) functions. reFX spent a lot of time programming the synthesis functions as good as possible: the result is a warm and rich sounding synthesizer plugin with all the benefits of todays digital technology.

VANGUARD is more than just a simple synthesizer. It is equipped with 31 different types of oscillators, including uncommon digital oscillators with fresh modulation options. There is also a huge selection of filters: 13 filter types are onboard with different slopes and including a new kind of combined dual-filter variations.

In need of inspiration? No problem for VANGUARD - the trancegate and arpeggiator can help you out! The trancegate is a 16-step gate to create rhythmic gated patterns and the arpgeggiator comes with inspiring patterns and several play modes. In addition to these creative tools VANGUARD is equipped with a delay and reverb.
