True analog sound with state of the art features!

Saurus brings the highly regarded analog sound from the past into the unlimited digital realm, fusing them together with a user interface that invites to tweak and a multitude of unique sound sculpting tools exclusive to Saurus. All without placing heavy demands on your CPU or budget.

It has been the aim of developers the world over to bring the best “Virtual Analog” synths possible to re-create the sound of classic hardware.
However, unlike many competitors who sell “Virtual Analog Synthesizers” which are at best mere approximations of what happens in the real world, we set out to create not just another synthesizer with character, but one that truly represents the sound of analog hardware.
We carefully measured and modeled the circuits of many classic performance synthesizers, even including single capacitors and resistors to provide an extremely accurate analog model, faithfully capturing the spirit and character of these old machines.

Enter Saurus

At the heart of Saurus are its high-end quality oscillators employing our True Analog Modeling Technology ™, which produces a warm characteristic sound reminiscent of the hardware units from the past.
Unlike their hardware counterparts these oscillators offer much more then just simple sound generation. Pulse Width Modulation which can be applied to all wave types opens up an incredible sonic range when used to modulate from one wave shape to another.
Together with Oscillator Sync, Oscillator Drift and AM & FM noise modulation an even broader range of sounds can be dialed-in. From using drift to introduce minor circuit instabilities, to complete analog chaos with the sync and noise modulation features.
Taking things even further, Saurus offers a selection of both standard as well as a large number of wave types from exotic synths to choose from, no more being limited to just 3 basic waveforms!


Saurus Filters

No analog sound would be complete without an excellent filter capable of sounding both lush when needed or screaming when over driven.
Analog-esque filters are far from perfect, suffering from distortion, noise, phase shift and self-oscillation, but it is exactly these imperfections that gives them more character than their sterile sounding digital counterparts.
Which is why Saurus comes with a filter section modeled after a variety of analog filters, with precisely modeled non-linearity and self-oscillation to make them sound every bit as full of character as its core sound.
To top it all off the filter section also includes FilterFM, Filter Feedback and an analog modeled Distortion for that little extra grit.

Modulation & Effects

The modulation system is based around punchy envelopes, LFOs that can run at audio-rate and an extremely flexible modulation matrix.
It features several exclusive new ways to take the sound sculpting even further. Our unique modulation value modifiers for example can be used to filter or shape envelope and LFO waveforms. While the Voiceout source allows you to use the audio output of a voice to modulate any matrix destination like cutoff or unison spread to create chaos.
With these modulation options, an almost infinite number of sound shaping possibilities are now within your reach.
To compliment its sound, Saurus also features various essential effects such as chorus, delay, reverb, tube amp and psychoacoustic processing, again of extremely high quality.


Arpeggiator & Gate

Saurus' arpeggiator is one of a kind when it comes to features. A lot of thought went into creating an arpeggiator that doesn't just offer the basic note step functionality but takes the concept even further by adding features like custom patterns, chords, double, triple note, swing and per step velocity. This ensures your arpeggio sequence can be as simple or complicated as you want it to be.
The velocity steps also function as step Gate which can be used to gate volume or control any other modulation source when used together with the modulation matrix.

Saurus has high-end quality oscillators with True Analog Modeling Technology, which produces a warm characteristic sound reminiscent of the hardware units from the past. The oscillators offer far more than just the basic waveforms.

Extreme Power at Low Cost

You may need to pay a lot to get true analog quality sound, opt to use hardware with its many disadvantages or need an extremely powerful processor to cope with the demands of software.
Once again, enter Saurus: Finally true analog sound no longer requires expensive hardware, even in full stereo unison, full polyphony or at maximum settings. Very few synthesizers that have analog themes can claim they have such little demand let alone broad sound, letting Saurus stand tall.
