u-he releases ACE (Any Cable Everywhere) preview version
u-he has announced the release of a preview version of ACE (Any Cable Everywhere), a modular synthesizer for Windows and Mac.
The software synthesizer ACE (Any Cable Everywhere) delivers top quality sound at a highly competitive price. The selection of modules and clear layout make ACE the ideal instrument for newcomers delving into the fascinating world of modular synthesis.
The number of ways to connect modules together is practically infinite, and you will soon discover how much more fun it is to make your own sounds in ACE than in a non-modular synthesizer.
