Steinberg has announced that it has revived the Model E, classic analog synth with ultra-low CPU load, and VB-1, virtual bass emulation with selectable pick position, VST instrument plug-ins and re-released them for free (well, VB-1 was always free). They are available for Windows and Mac OS X and also now include native 64-bit versions.
Steinberg says: "Throughout the long history of Steinberg, many products have come and gone, many have been superseded by new variants and others have been dropped completely. Once in a while, however, some of our developers like to dig up one of these long forgotten gems and polish it ready for current operating systems. As these revived products remain discontinued, their updates are not officially supported. Updates for discontinued products are sporadic as these are voluntarily provided by our engineers in their free time."
