Ultra Analog VA-2 + PACKS

Complete Collection by Applied Acoustics Systems

Analog Synthesizer and Sound Packs

Ultra Analog VA-2

In a world filled with reproductions and ever-increasing complexity, Ultra Analog imposes itself as a unique and powerful synth that is fast, easy, and remarkably versatile.

Ultra Analog is highly efficient, find the sound you want fast and tweak it to perfection thanks to the categorized browser and ergonomic interface. Whether it’s for day to day synth work or particular sound design tasks, Ultra Analog will deliver the entire analogue sonic range with every control at your fingertips whenever your creative outbursts demand it.

Sublime Shapes

Ultra Analog VA-2’s voice comes from two alias-free, wide-range oscillators with sub and hard sync skills in sine, saw, and square/pulse wave shapes.

Sweet Sweep Filters

Ultra Analog VA-2’s filters can enchant or rage, but modulation, automation, and MIDI control (MIDI Control Change assignment shown in orange above) operations are always smooth and effortless.

Snappy Envelopes

Ultra Analog VA-2’s envelopes present themselves as familiar ADSRs, but strapped on are the organically decaying time parameter as well as loop and re-trig options—all for a strikingly snappy package.

Multi Multi-mode

Whether you’re looking for highly focused, super-steep-slope, or layered sounds, Ultra Analog’s two filter stage allow any combination of low-pass, high-pass, band-pass, notch, and formant types in both series and parallel routing for an exceptional amount of flexibility.

Library

The superb preset library created by the best professional sound designers represents a sensational journey through all the colours of the analogue spectrum—from vintage synthesizers to modern VAs.

Performance

Ultra Analog is packed with premium performance features: keyboard modes, unison, portamento and glide functions, and a complete set of MIDI features. And for even more action, Ultra Analog provides a user programmable pattern arpeggiator and shortcuts to the high-quality effects.

Ultra Analog VA-2 will match your playing style or musical context with ease thanks to the tap tempo and sync to host clock options; poly- or monophonic with note priority keyboard modes; up-to-4-voice unison; glide and legato functions; and the flexible vibrato.

Arpeggiator

Ready, willing, and able, Ultra Analog VA-2’s arpeggiator offers various syncing resolutions, playing algorithms, and rhythmic patterns that will spruce up any chord progressions into percolating melodies or pulsing sequences.

FX

The FX panel wraps up Ultra Analog VA-2 as an all-inclusive package with awesome polishing tools.

Sounds from BLKRTZ

Inspired by his work in a wide array of genres over the last 12 years, Deadbeat's Sounds from BLKRTZ is a collection of 100 presets for Ultra Analog VA which truly push the instruments to its earth shaking low and shimmering high extremes. It will come as no surprise to those familiar to his unmistakable dubwise style that subs and bass play a central role here, but you'll also find an inspiring array of evolving chords and stabs, ambient clouds, and slowly evolving sequences.

For those looking for inspiration in the realm of dubstep, ambient, or the deepest and dubbiest of house and techno, Sounds from BLKRTZ is certain provide hours of creative exploration for your productions.

Plastic Pop

The 127 presets of Plastic Pop muse back at arpeggio, bass, effects, lead, and pad sounds of the 80s. Included are analog and digital favorites from the Juno, DX7, Wavestation, and D-50 as well as guitar synths, the TX81Z's LatelyBass, and of course the Honkytonk sound! A superb kit to revisit the top new wave and synthpop albums from Duran Duran, Japan, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, and ABC. Shoulder pads are not included.

Reverence

Reverence is an ode to modern and vintage analog synths. Sean's goal was to create sounds with the warmth, imperfections, and character associated with these instruments. His combined background and expertise as a composer, producer, and mix engineer results in a preset collection that is both truly inspired and tailored for production. The 115 sounds are divided into seven categories: Arpeggiator, Bass, Keys, Leads, Pads, Plucked, and SFX.

Abstractions

Abstractions is a collection of 127 signature sounds covering standard analog categories but revisited with Richard Devine’s unique style and aesthetics. These finely crafted sounds include super precise percussion hits, unusual basses, thick pads, deep and animated arpeggiator loops, rich intricate ambient textures, and more. This collection of exclusive sounds once again showcase beautifully Richard Devine’s mastery of sound design and are sure to provide many hours of exploration in evocative soundscapes.

Raw

Ultra Analog VA-2 sure can play the bad guy. Raw is a collection of 100 sounds that showcases this lesser-known side of its personality. From subtle warmth to screaming distortion, Raw relies on the natural overdrive of Ultra Analog's filters and its built-in effects to propose a surprisingly varied set of unpolished, gritty,  and dirty sounds. Have fun and let yourself go to eleven!

Transparency

Transparency is sound designer Daniel Stawczyk’s fourth title in AAS' Sound Bank Series and his third for Ultra Analog VA-2. The 149 presets explore the percussive nature of AAS' analog synthesizer. Kick, Snare, Hi-hat, and Percussion loops are bundled along with Ambient, Synth, and Effect sounds. Typical of Daniel’s mysterious and exotic aesthetics, Transparency aims to yield pulse, motion, and relief to your tracks.

Low End Theory

Sean Divine drops its second installment in the Sound Bank Series in the form of a 114-preset collection that packs essential super low bass sounds, fast and punchy kick drums, catchy sine whistles to super phat saw synth leads, haunting and melodic plucks and bells, futuristic and furious arpeggios, emotionally charged vintage organs and keys as well as a selection of useful vinyl scratches and effects. Whether you’re into urban, trap, or hip hop, Low End Theory is serious core material that will steadily inspire your future beats.

Pivotal

For this library, Daniel Stawczyk sent us a ton of high energy shots. From the first few notes, we perked up and straighten our backs. Digging in, we discovered a hefty 158-preset collection of focused and upfront sounds covering all the classic categories—arpeggios, basses, leads, synths, and effects are all there. We found Pivotal to be a wicked synthetic, addictive, and mood-altering stimulant that is perfectly fit to spark new ideas.
