WHAT’S NEW IN Ultra Analog VA-3?

Applied Acoustics Systems have streamlined Ultra Analog and brought it to an entirely new level.

NEW—Home view with macros mapped to key sound characteristics—modulation, timbre, envelope, and effect. The Home view also presents a distraction-free and laidback browsing and tweaking experience.

NEW—Two-Voice Multitimbral. Ultra Analog VA-3 combines two independent timbres—stacked or split—to create performance-friendly, texture-rich, and spacious sounds that are sure to impress.

NEW—Factory Library.​ Ultra Analog VA-3 ships with a completely new factory library of 560 sounds created by top sound designers. Richard Devine, Christian Halten, Jerry Kovarsky, Christian Laffitte, Niall McCallum, Adam Pietruszko, Thiago Pinheiro, Daniel Stawczyk, and Emeric Zubar form an incredible team that made the most of the latest Ultra Analog VA-3 features. It’s with great pride that AAS present these new signature sounds.

PUMPED UP—The VA-2 Legacy Library. A long and fastidious process of fine-tuning went down at AAS headquarters. Each and every sound of the legacy Ultra Analog VA-2 library was thoroughly examined by all the team members to ensure consistent gain-stage, unity-gain effects, better dynamics, and compelling real-time sound transformation assignments to take advantage of the new features of Ultra Analog VA-3. That’s an extra 648 solid sounds under your hands!

NEW—Browser With Packs, Sounds, Categories, and Creator views. Ultra Analog VA-3’s brand-new browser offers an efficient way to home in on the sounds you’re looking for.

NEW—Macros! Ultra Analog VA-3 now boasts four performance macros per layer that respond to user-defined MIDI controls. Each and every sound features modulation, timbre, envelope, and effect morphing assignments that can be played in real-time for enhanced expressivity and sonic dimension.

IMPROVED—Filter Musicality. Ultra Analog VA-3’s filters can now withstand extreme modulation while remaining totally musical.

NEW — Ladder Filter. Ultra Analog VA-3’s multi-mode module now stars a brand-new ladder-type filter for that classic Low Pass Filter response.

IMPROVED — Microtonal tunings via Scala scale files. Ultra Analog VA-3 now supports the Scala scale file format as well as reference note frequency tuning for microtonal music-making.

EASY—Compatible with Ultra Analog VA-2 sounds. Simply copy Ultra Analog VA-2 banks in Ultra Analog VA-3’s packs folder to convert them.

EXPANDED—Multi-Effects Module. Ultra Analog VA-3’s multi-effects module now sports reverb, equalizer, compressor, tremolo, and guitar amplifier processors for even more power. Plus, the five effect slots can be re-arranged in any order.

Don't miss this exciting re-birth of AAS's classic super synth!
