Was $20/£20, now $10/£10

This is a full-fledged virtual synthesizer, built to replicate the expressive analog synth sounds of days gone by. It’s particularly well-suited to playing via MIDI connection to a Seaboard MPE controller, but even if you’re just tapping and swiping at the on-screen controls, you can get some wicked sounds here with plenty of built-in FX.
