Manx releases SJ-2 synthesizer plugin

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Aug 28, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Manx has announced the release of SJ-2, a synthesizer instrument for Windows.

Manx SJ-2

Of all the different kinds of vintage hardware synthesizers, our favourite has to be the wave of programmable polysynths which appeared during the eighties, such as the Jupiter 8 and the MJS-80 rack-mount. It wasn’t just the breakthroughs of polyphony & patch recall that made these instruments popular – they also have a distinctive sound which was quite magical. We’re very proud to present the SJ-2 as our own tribute to these awesome, IC based beasts!

It’s no accident that the SJ-2 sounds the way it does – it features several layers of audio processing ‘algorithms’ designed to reproduce subtle audio nuances that you’ll find in analog synthesisers. This ‘no stone left unturned’ approach is, of course, computationally expensive and depending on patch settings, your CPU may take a hammering. Rest assured that we have tried to minimize CPU use as much as possible, spending many hours on optimisation.

SJ-2 features

  • 6 note polyphonic, with double and unison modes..
  • Filter and envelope technologies exclusive to Manx.
  • Midi Learn for all parameters.
  • Patch memory system with full library.
  • Independent PWM lfos, velocity sensitivity, generous modulation routings and much more…

SJ-2 for Windows (VST) is available for purchase for the introductory price of $69 USD.
