|Arturia is proud to announce that ANALOG FACTORY is now shipping. This powerful yet extremely easy to use virtual instrument comes loaded with 2000 legendary synthesizer sounds that have shaped modern music production.

The intuitive interface includes a smart Preset Manager that allows in

But Analog Factory is not only a collection of sounds. Since it is based
on synthesis, all sounds are dramatically modifiable. A set of the most
essential parameters provides the user with an efficient way to tweak
and alter the sonic character of the sound.

Herbie Hancock states: "Right out of the box I can immediately recall
the golden years of early analog synths. Analog Factory is a beautiful
mixture of the current Arturia products all rolled into one package. How
convenient to be able to switch from Modular Moog to Prophet V to CS-80
to...It goes on and on and brings the past into the present and beyond."
Laurent Garnier adds: "Analog Factory provides a massive range of pure
electronic sounds. From abstract textures, to atmospheric stabs, to fat
basslines, to aggressive leads."
Taku Takahashi from m-flo says: "The three great things about Analog
Factory: its fat analog sound, the ease with which you can change the
sound to suit your need and finally, finding a great preset from the
vast library is only every a few clicks away. Analog Factory has
everything I want."
