§ Playful §

Direct access to FX shortcuts, performance settings, and the arpeggiator.

Performance

Ultra Analog VA-2 will match your playing style or musical context with ease thanks to the tap tempo and sync to host clock options; poly- or monophonic with note priority keyboard modes; up-to-4-voice unison; glide and legato functions; and the flexible vibrato.

Arpeggiator

Ready, willing, and able, Ultra Analog VA-2’s arpeggiator offers various syncing resolutions, playing algorithms, and rhythmic patterns that will spruce up any chord progressions into percolating melodies or pulsing sequences.


§ Familiar and sophisticated §

A two-oscillator-plus-filter arrangement with a clever layer of advanced editing.

Sublime shapes

Ultra Analog VA-2’s voice comes from two alias-free, wide-range oscillators with sub and hard sync skills in sine, saw, and square/pulse wave shapes.

Sweet sweep filters

Ultra Analog VA-2’s filters can enchant or rage, but modulation, automation, and MIDI control (MIDI Control Change assignment shown in orange above) operations are always smooth and effortless.

Snappy envelopes

Ultra Analog VA-2’s envelopes present themselves as familiar ADSRs, but strapped on are the organically decaying time parameter as well as loop and re-trig options—all for a strikingly snappy package.

Multi multi-mode

Whether you’re looking for highly focused, super-steep-slope, or layered sounds, Ultra Analog’s two filter stage allow any combination of low-pass, high-pass, band-pass, notch, and formant types in both series and parallel routing for an exceptional amount of flexibility.
