- Three ADSRs
- Three synchronizable LFOs
- Global pitch LFO
- Modulation section with Stereo Delay and Flanger effects
- Up to 64 voices
- 300 presets included
- All parameters accessible via MIDI controller
PLEX runs on Windows and Macintosh (OS 9 and OS X 10.2). Although PLEX has shipped, pricing information was not available at press time. For updated pricing or for more information, visit http://www.steinberg.net.
