RealThing is a dedicated hardware box for hybrid soft/hard VST and VSTi (it is not a hardware synth with a VSTi interface) - it has integrated analog and digital components to offer "vintage sound and new combinations". Sound is generated through your sound card - the analog box is controlled by 14 bit MIDI. Complex envelopes can be drawn on screen to control hardware and software.

New optional modules can be added to hardware:

  • Tube stage with overdrive.
  • State variable filters.


  • Hardware external analog box.
  • Connected to two audio board inputs, one output and MIDI in/out.
  • Two oscillators: analog waveforms, digital waveforms, additive.
  • Two filters: analog 24dB LP with resonance, digital multi-mode.
  • Frequency modulation.
  • Amplitude modulation.
  • Amplitude, pitch, filter envelopes.
  • Overdrive with pre and post-eq, "shape" control.
  • Chorus/Flanger.
  • Modulation matrix.
  • Hardware pre-filter and post-filter insert paths.
  • Easy interface.

RealThing costs from €350, depending on the configuration. It uses PC audio and MIDI board and the plug-in host's routing capabilities (please contact SKnote for tested configurations).
