Loomer has announced a major upgrade to its virtual analog synthesizer instrument for Windows, macOS, and Linux.

Version 2 of Aspect comes with various new features and improvements to the original semi-modular polyphonic synth.

With hundreds of new modulation options, flexible and precise MSEG envelopes, and a built-in two-channel sequencer, the possibilities are (nearly) limitless.

Featuring a beautiful new scalable UI with three themes – light, dark, and the classic blue – plus an intuitive and flexible wire-free drag-and-drop modulation system.

Changes in Aspect 2

  • New vector-based resizeable interface, with dark, light, and classic blue color schemes.
  • Over 600 factory presets.
  • New multi-segment envelopes, each having an unlimited number of segments. Curves can be edited to sub-millisecond accuracy for total modulation control, and synced to follow the host tempo.
  • Additional filters algorithms come in the form of a new brutal saturating filter.
  • New two-part sequencer modulation source, with value and retrigger lanes. This can also be used to retrigger envelopes.
  • Intuitive drag and drop modulation encourages experimentation.
  • Expanded modulation, with over 100 modulation sources and destinations. New modulation processors included quantizers, mappers, rectifiers, and many more.
  • 100% backwards compatible with Aspect 1 presets.

Aspect 2 (VST/VST3, AU and AAX) is available to purchase for £85 GBP + VAT. Users of Aspect 1 can upgrade for free.
