Related: , , , , Posted in news on Jun 09, 2014 - comment 0 comments

AudioRealism has announced the release of the VST/AU version of ReDominator, a synthesizer instrument for Windows and Mac.

AudioRealism ReDominator VST/AU

ReDominator is an emulation of the classic Alpha Juno 1/2 (JU-1/2), a polyphonic DCO (digitally controlled oscillator) based synth from 1986.

The JU-1/2 became popular in the early 90′s techno and rave scene particularly by the classic Hoover sound (which ReDominator emulates accurately). But beyond those niche sounds there lays a versatile synthesizer that does bass, pads, leads, organs and a lot of other sounds waiting to be discovered!

ReDominator VST/AU features

  • Accurate emulation of the Alpha Juno 1/2 including the famous Hoover patch.
  • 14 different low aliasing waveforms including a unique PWM-sawtooth.
  • High quality full range 24dB/octave low-pass filter.
  • Unique 8 parameter envelope generator which enables much more complicated and expressive sounds than a standard ADSR.
  • 200+ bundled patches (of which many are sysex converted from our own JU-2).
  • Patch importer which allows importing sysex patches from your own Alpha Juno and play them in ReDominator.
  • Chord Memory function.

ReDominator for Windows and Mac is available for purchase for 55 EUR incl. VAT.
