Fat machine allows you the creation of fat harmonic rich leads and basses, trancey arpeggios with a constantly evolving sound and other hi quality synth sounds, thanks to the alias-free technology of NUsofting.
"It is an easy to use, high quality virtual analogue synthesizer, with many powerful and unique features for its small size. Fat Machine possesses the capability to realise a remarkably aggressive or crystal clear sound, you decide!"
