      DESCRIPTION

      Analog Essentials for Ableton Live 10 & 11 & Logic Pro X 10.5

      SOPHISTICATED DESIGN ESSENTIALS
      Analog Essentials was created with a straightforward ambition: to extend the frontiers of modern synthesis. The classic analog machines of history were meant for so much more than we’ve been using them. It is time to press forward. 

      ENLIGHTENING DISCOVERY
      The classic sounds of vintage synthesizers have filled the airwaves for years, and the sound market is full of digital simulations and samples of those nostalgic tones. Analog Essentials offers instead a more cultivated and mature encounter: a collection of chromatically sampled synthesizers refined with unique effects primed for boutique outboard MPE manipulation. The result is a surprising discovery of something you never imagined might become by touching that key.

      FAITHFULLY CRAFTED
      Not a digital simulation or approximation, Analog Essentials is a collection of faithfully sampled Eurorack modular, vintage analog mono synths, and modern analog poly synthesizers. Outboard processing was done by hand in real time using a variety of studio equipment including analog tape machines, 4 track recorders, and dozens of analog modulation sources and effects. 

      GRIT AND CHARACTER
      No algorithms or software manipulations were used in the entire process, so what you have is an absolutely irreproducible palette of emerging sounds. Because we sampled vintage analog gear, we were able to capture all the priceless imperfections that give these beauties their character: the grit and grime of old analog, the wobble and timing of tape loops, and the unexpected panning of boutique modulation sources. 

      ENERGIZING AND ORIGINAL
      While you’ll find Analog Essentials conveniently playable within the comfort of your keybed, that is where the familiarity ends and the creativity begins. Each note brings from the classic sound source a completely fresh variant ready to serve your production masterpiece. Employing a wide range of tonal, timbral, and time-based sculpting, we revitalized the old leads, pads, and basses into a richer form. In your discerning hands they may become a delicate wash, a looming thunder, or any other unpredictable articulation of mood.

      DEEPER FEELING
      Analog Essentials is now available for Ableton Live 10 & 11* / Logic Pro X 10.5 and is pre-mapped with MPE controls. This gives you freedom to add bends, slides, and pressure per note, allowing unique control over the development of each sound as it is played in real time. Take this expressive feature deeper by customizing  the MPE controls to your liking and further editing the MPE controls in their  individual lanes. Both the Ableton Live and Logic Pro X versions include individual presets for their samplers, and they each offer loads of native plugin effects so you can expand on the presets.

      Within our designed Ableton Instrument Racks and Logic Pro Channel Strips, there are tons of reverb, delay, resonators, EQ, compression, distortion and tape saturation effects to get you quickly turning Analog Essentials into sounds uniquely your own. This collection is a real catharsis experience, empowering you to command emerging soundscapes, determine heavy moods, and author relevant storylines.
