It’s with great pride that AAS present these new signature sounds.
  • VA-2 Legacy Library: A long and fastidious process of fine-tuning went down in the AAS quarters. Each and every sound of the legacy Ultra Analog VA-2 library went under the eyes of all team members to exit with a consistent gain-stage, unity-gain effects, better dynamics, and compelling real-time sound transformation assignments to take advantage of the new features of Ultra Analog VA-3. That’s an extra 648 solid sounds in your hands.
  • Browser: With Packs, Sounds, Categories, and Creators views, Ultra Analog VA-3’s brand-new browser offers an efficient way to home in on the sounds you’re looking for.

Objeq Delay - Acoustic Filter and Delay

Objeq Delay is a creative effect plug-in combining acoustic filtering with a clever delay unit. The plate, beam, drumhead, and string objects impart evocative acoustic resonances to the input signal. Further shaping is also available via low- and high-cut filters. The in-series delay acts as a classic unit or can split the first and subsequent repeats to either remodel the attack or create complex rhythmic patterns. An LFO module completes the package with comprehensive modulation destinations to the filter, resonator, and delay parameters. 

"Objeq delay is a truly creative and fun effect with multifaceted applications, " said Eric Thibeault, the product's designer, "Objeq Delay is obviously a great delay unit, but the complete feature set takes it to another level. The acoustic resonator is a great percussion track enhancer—it's fantastic on kicks and snares. The split between the first and subsequent echoes can mangle simple loops into new complex rhythms. The LFO allows various modulator-type effects such as flanger and chorus. And then when you bring it all together, a highly resonant object with the delay brings you into the drones territory."

Objeq Delay is a creative delay unit with unique filtering options thanks to our acoustic object models. Going beyond traditional delay duties, Objeq Delay delivers modulator type effects, drum track layering, one-shot re-crafting, dynamic loop mangling, and drones…
