D16 Group LuSH-101 multilayer synthesizer plug-in released


D16 Group has announced the availability of LuSH-101 (formerly known as SHIOITOR), the long awaited authentic sounding virtual synthesizer for Windows and Mac.

D16 Group LuSH-101Three years in the making, LuSH-101’s uniquely accurate sound has been achieved only through experience: countless hours have been spent analyzing classic analogue synthesizers, and then designing and implementing DSP algorithms with close attention paid to every component in the signal path.

LuSH-101 is a synthesizer created from modules that can be found in many modern virtual synthesizers, all combined into a single compact and logically intuitive design. This basic simplicity combined with its multilayer architecture turns it into an easy-to-use but extremely powerful instrument that can be programmed and tweaked quickly.

The multilayer architecture guarantees that both the sound design possibilities and number of unique situations in which LuSH-101 can be used are virtually limitless. Any combination of keyboard splits, layers, and multitimbrality is possible with just a single instance of LuSH-101. Each layer working as an independent synthesizer with its own polyphony, parameters, enhanced arpeggiator, and a palette of eight insert effects.

LuSH-101 comes complete with a powerful built in mixer, complete with layer-independent parametric equalizers, compressors and three send effects: reverb, delay and chorus.

Innovative oscillator algorithms developed by D16 Group make LuSH-101 sound exactly like a sampled hardware analog synth. Filters with constant resonance across the entire frequency domain has natural warmth and character.

A generous factory library contains more than 1600 presets of every type, while intuitively designed preset browser keeps everything organized and easy to locate.

LuSH-101 for Windows and Mac (32 & 64bit VST/AU) is available to purchase for 149 EUR/$199 USD/£119 GBP incl. taxes (if applicable). LuSH-101 is now also included in the Total Bundle. Discounts are available to registered product owners from their User Area at the D16 Group website.

Looking forward to a review :)


Just having a quick listen to some of the presets, and I’m lost in some of pad sounds. The “Edge of the Universe” one for example sounds amazing.
Hoping to find time to do a review soon, but there’s a lot of ground to cover first.

CPU hog.


It does seem to be a cpu hog on some patches, but then its 8 separate synth cores with 1 fx per layer, and 3 more fx in the mixer… that adds up quickly if they choose to use it. Saying that, with the demo, under Studio One v2 x64 I haven’t seen it rise more than 50% and so like in Diva, I’d just bounce it. That said, it is a 1.0 and perhaps now they can work on optimization :)
