For ANA 1 owners who are subscribers and with the current discount they can pick it up for around £60/$80... so our intention was to make it as accessible as possible for our loyal customers who subscribe and follow the tutorials etc.

I think that keeps things in line with what we have been trying to do with ANA which is make a plugin that is as versatile as possible and gives our users a main synth to follow the courses.

Granted for new users in a week or so time it will be going up a bit but the difference in development time and features compared to ANA 1 is pretty vast.



I own Ana 1 and my price is over $100 for an upgrade


You bought it second hand tho?



yes but why am i penalized for that? I wanted to buy it ever since i heard of it, but not going to for $110 for an upgrade.

We are basing the vouchers on what the user paid us for their copy of ANA 1. you paid us £10 license transfer fee.

Well, I for one thought that the ANA upgrade was a reasonable price. :)

Wow, it is seriously impressive sounding synth with very nice workflow. Just the right amount of features and really outstanding sound. You really outdid yourself with this one, I believe this one should have very bright future. I for one much prefer it to Spire and Avenger. It really has a very organic but modern sound and filters sound great!

I would of paid $80 even though I still think that is a lot for an update. Sad I will miss out on this, I just can't see paying $110 for a version 2 from my version 1. Moving on, enjoy you all.

I think I found a bad preset. When I open templates - Virus Template, sampler section show sign "file missing click to relink"

I was eyeing ANA 2 for a long time but offering a commercial software product without demo seems very odd to me.
Guess that SA wanted to get on a Black Friday train so badly.

Questions for owners:
- how does it behave CPU wise? Getting tired of hungry plugs and getting my hands burned over my flaming laptop.
- is UI responsive? Unfortunately I experience "sticky" knobs and envelops with one of my recent purchase (Thorn) and it spoils the fun, albeit not ruins.
- is really that intuitive? Combination of mod matrix and dedicated selectable destination for different modulators seems confusing.
- is the unison good?
- how easy is to deconstruct or tweak the exact thing in a patch? I'm not talking about trivial cutoff adjustment, something more obscure. With Serum or Thorn it's on a glance.

Hate to make blind decisions but guess it's the game when you're cheapskate.

Sa is ignoring also this posts about if the demo gets ob with intro price. Smells shit and bad business. I dont trust em anymore. F%cking up customers is a no go for me. Im harsh? Yeah my money is harsh too.

I told myself I didn't need another synth, but at the upgrade price of 73 Euro I couldn't resist. Damn GAS :D

Have been using it now for two days, really I don't remember the last time I was so excited using a new synth (since Omnisphere). It really sounds superb, it is very flexible and so fast to program! I already see Spire, Avenger and Rapid collecting digital dust, because I just really prefer this one so much regarding sound and workflow. It can sound cold (Serum, Spire, Avenger liike) or it can sound very analog very fat and analog. Don't want to hype anything, since this is my second post on the same page now praising it, but it really is so good!

Yes sorry... punch short2 file was renamed and not hooked up.

you can hook it up by clicking the sample name and selecting from the punch list.

will update the installers too.
