Ultra Analog is driven by two super rich oscillators featuring sub oscillators, hard sync and integrated pitch envelopes. Two extensive multimode filters with distortion are then applied to shape its sonic character. Carefully chosen modulation options are provided by two syncable comprehensive LFOs, four loopable velocity sensitive envelope generators and vibrato. Finally, Ultra Analog comes equipped with high quality master effects including a delay, chorus and reverb module.
