Initial Audio has announced the release of 808 Studio 2, a virtual instrument that is designed for cutting edge quality 808 sub bass.

The instrument is geared towards Hip Hop and Trap or any genre that requires a hard hitting bass synth.

With 808 studio 2 we went one step further by adding advanced features such as drag and drop modulation for advanced synthesis, and an advanced sequencer which allows overlapping notes to get that classic pitch glide effect used in trap music. 808 Studio 2 could inspire your next beat just by hitting one key.

808 Studio 2 can now also load samples, drag and drop onto the sampler or select from the many Kick and 808 samples included. Multiple high quality and advanced effects are builtin, such as the 3 band equaliser and Analog modelled Filter, with an epic sounding Chorus which can be applied only to the high end, so the sub part stays clean.

808 Studio 2 comes with 80 presets to get you started. Modifying any sound to your liking is super easy and will sound good with little effort. From clean sub bass, to down and dirty basses, 808 studio is the perfect bass synth for the task.

808 Studio 2 (VST/AU) is on sale at an introductory 40% discount, priced $59 USD (regular $99 USD) at Initial Audio and distributor Plugin Boutique.

The update is free to 808 Studio users.
