Cherry Audio is celebrating International Synth Day 2022 with the release of a virtual synthesizer instrument based on the most renowned dual-oscillator bass pedal synth ever made, the Moog Taurus.
The outrageously fun and funky Lowdown Bass Synthesizer plugin instrument recreates the room-rattling sounds heard on countless prog-rock and new wave tracks in the 70s and 80s.
To create Cherry Audio’s Lowdown, award-winning synth designer and DSP legend Mark Barton carefully analyzed the original’s synthesis circuits and precisely modeled them to provide a massive virtual bass experience like no other. But we didn’t stop at the sound!
Lowdown’s unique interface reproduces the experience with a lovingly rendered and animated foot pedal “keyboard” and the ability for users to select from 14 under-the-pedals floor surfaces. Over 40 outstanding presets and unlimited user preset storage are provided, and Lowdown supports full MIDI and DAW automation control.
