D16 Group has announced the release of LuSH-101 for Windows and Mac OS X in VST and AU plug-in formats (including 64-bit versions for both).

LuSH-101 is available for purchase for 149€ / 199$ / 119£ (inc. VAT where applicable).

LuSH-101 is a virtual analogue synthesizer that provides "authentic analogue character and extensive software features that will fulfil the needs of the most demanding musicians and sound designers who use synthesisers in their work".

Since it uses a layered architecture (up to 8 layers per instance), LuSH-101 provides endless sound-shaping possibilities. Each layer can be freely assigned to any MIDI channel or keyboard zone, and its audio output can be routed to any of the 11 available stereo busses. Layers can either be used to create a single massive sound (where all layers respond to a single MIDI channel and a single keyboard zone) or to create several discrete timbres simultaneously (where each layer sounds on a different MIDI channel), which is quite convenient compared to loading multiple instances of the same plugin for each sound. In other words, LuSH-101 is a truly multi-timbral instrument with an interface that makes splits, layers, and every conceivable combination simple to set up.

Each module implemented in LuSH-101 utilizes sophisticated DSP algorithms to provide the highest quality sound possible throughout every link in the signal chain. Each layer in LuSH-101 can work as an independent synthesizer with its own polyphony, parameters, advanced arpeggiator, and a palette of 8 insert effects. In addition to a sophisticated MIDI-learn implementation, an advanced modulation matrix is built into each layer allowing a whole other level of expressive control. LuSH also comes complete with a powerful built in mixer with layer-independent parametric equalizers and compressors. Three send effects allow you to put the finishing touches on the final output.

LuSH-101 also gives you a powerful preset management system. It allows the creation of presets for a single layer, for all 8 layers at once (including the mixer settings). But, there's more: you can even create presets for smaller blocks of parameters such as arpeggiator settings or the mixer's send effects. A generous factory library of more than 1700 presets in every flavor is included.

To top it all off, an intuitively designed preset browser keeps everything organized and easy-to-locate, even when dealing with something as enormous as the included library. In order to ensure that exchanging them with others remains as painless as possible, presets are managed in a file-based manner, rather than in some proprietary, esoteric format. Go wild, and share the results—easily.

The demo does indeed sound lush...but it kills my cpu. Will have to wait until I next upgrade my mac.
