Roland – Aira SYSTEM-1m
Semi-Modular PLUG-OUT Synthesizer with CV/GATE and Eurorack Compatibility
The SYSTEM-1m is a semi-modular synthesizer with PLUG-OUT capability and a unique design that can be used as a Eurorack module, tabletop synth, or 19” rackmount unit. In addition to being a powerful standalone instrument, the SYSTEM-1m has external inputs and an array of CV/Gate connections that allow it to be re-patched and to interface with other modular synthesizer systems. The SYSTEM-1m’s CV/Gate connections combined with its ability to load classic Roland PLUG-OUT synth models like the SH-101 and PROMARS give it power and flexibility that is simply unparalleled.

Roland – Aira Modular
Roland goes modular
Following last year’s AIRA debut, Roland is launching a whole new range of Eurorack compatible modular gear.

Next there’s a range of standalone, table-top and Eurorack compatible effects for next-level sound mangling and experimentation, with distortion, crusher, delay and scatter coming soon. Patch cables at the ready!

Zynaptiq – UNMIX::DRUMS
UNMIX::DRUMS is the world’s first plugin that allows suppressing or boosting drums in mixed music, in real-time. Using advanced source signal separation technology (a.k.a. de-mixing, unmixing, sound extraction, sound isolation), UNMIX::DRUMS provides drum level control that ranges from up to +18dB of boost to virtually complete removal. Sporting an intuitive multi-level GUI, frequency dependent control of key parameters, our high-precision analyzer display, M/S operation and an output limiter, UNMIX::DRUMS opens up exciting new options for mastering, music production, sample-based music creation, mash-up artists, remixers and DJs.

Plugin Alliance – Vertigo VSM-3
Awesome Tone & Color with Mastering Quality
The brainworx developed, Vertigo VSM-3 delivers the beloved badass harmonic generators of Vertigo Sound’s acclaimed VSM-2 Mix Satellite in plugin form. Liberated from hardware, VSM-2’s saturation and distortion tools can now process as many tracks and busses as your CPU can handle — and master outputs, too, of course — making them more useful than ever for recording and mixing.

Plugin Alliance – Maag Audio EQ2
Flawless Emulation of TEC Award Nominated EQ
The Mäag EQ4 is one of Plugin Alliance’s most popular plugins. International pros rely on its tremendous musicality to enhance their tracks. Now Mäag has released their TEC Award nominated EQ2 in a plugin version, bringing that Air Band® magic to a lower price point and creating the perfect compliment to the EQ4.
While the Mäag EQ2 provides some of the same audio magic of its bigger brother, it also adds features which make it the perfect companion to the EQ4. While the EQ4’s wide, musical control over 4 frequency bands make it the best EQ on the market for sweetening your tracks, the EQ2’s second band offers greater control over center frequencies and bandwidth selections, making it a great tool for fixing problems or creating more radical changes.

Plugin Alliance – Millennia TCL-2
Faithful emulation of this super clean, but sonically flexible, dynamics tool
The Millennia TCL-2 delivers the stellar, transparent sonics of the beloved Millennia Twincom in plugin form.

Both the complete tube and solid-state signal paths have been faithfully modeled in the plugin version. In addition, the plugin version provides the ability to process Mid (M) and Side (S) information separately, as well as a Dry / Wet signal control for each individual channel.
