Compatible with both VST and AU hosts, this versatile synthesizer conveys ample power and provides a vast range of sounds that add to its tonal richness and complexity. Picking up where the highly acclaimed previous version left off, Retrologue 2 meticulously emulates the sound of analog circuitry and its associated warmth.

Three virtual analog oscillators provide up to eight de-tunable voices alongside an additional sub oscillator and noise generator. The filter section comprises 24 filter shapes and five distortion modes. The ultra-flexible Arpeggiator, a powerful modulation system and comprehensive set of effects, including reverb, delay and the innovative three-band Resonator, stretch the creative envelope, only to be complemented by the extensive collection of exclusive presets.

A 30-day trial version of Retrologue 2 for evaluation without feature restrictions is available from the product pages.

“Our goal was to increase the sonic spectrum of Retrologue 2 with new features without losing the intuitive concept of the instrument,” said Matthias Quellmann, Senior Marketing Manager for Steinberg. “The result is a full-fledged virtual analog synthesizer with an amazing level of quality and performance.”

Steinberg today have also released a point update to their Cubase Pro and Artist music production systems. Cubase Pro 8.5 and Cubase Artist 8.5 include Retrologue 2 and many other features and enhancements.

Retrologue 2 is available for purchase for 99.99 EUR. The update from version 1 is 49.99 EUR. Prices including German VAT.

Customers who have purchased the first version of Retrologue from October 15th, 2015, are entitled to a free downloadable Grace Period update to Retrologue 2. Customers who already have purchased Absolute 2 including the first version of Retrologue receive a free update to Retrologue 2 automatically.
