Synapse Audio Manager’s innovative program, The Legend VST, claims to unlock a “new territory” in analog modelling technology. Operating on Windows, it invites prospective users to “feel the magic” of analog sound through a variety of features.
The Legend VST was developed in collaboration with Bigtone Studios, a vintage synth specialist. So, the program was therefore crafted to loyally take after one of the most renowned vintage analog synths. But still it goes further, thanks to a plethora of exciting additions aiding flexibility and enjoyment.
Key features include:
- Unprecedented precision.
- Vectorised core with Unison, Mono and four-voice Polyphony modes.
- Two revisions modelled, Early and Late.
- Accurate circuit simulation.
- 8x oversampled engine.
- 480 patches included.
The creators of The Legend VST have strived to create an accuracy like never seen before in a software of its kind. This has been managed thanks to fine-tuning of every component, from the voltage-controlled oscillators (VCO) to the voltage-controlled amplifier (VCA) and voltage-controlled filter (VCF).
According to Synapse Audio Manager the “most significant additions” are the Unison and Polyphonic modes, which enable polyphonic play as well as thick stereo sounds. It is also able to synthesise four voices for the cost of little more than one. Therefore, The Legend can be described as a highly efficient analog-modelling synthesizer plug-in.
Meanwhile, the back panel supports the user to switch between two revisions modelled, Early and Late. Additional options are also available to fine-tune and adjust the finished product.
Overall, The Legend VST offers a wide array of features to get the best out of analog sound. It also comes with 480 patches crafted by leading sound designers, which are sorted into categories including Lead, SFX, Bass and so on. It requires 2 GHz quad core CPU or better, 4GB of memory at least and VST2 or AU compatible host software.
