ANA 2 with wavetable osc's, hmmm sounds good. Listening/watching to the video it sounds and looks a bit like Vember audio SURGE to me (which is still a very nice synth imho). I hope they keep the cpu usage low and make the GUI scalable :)
Now on Xubuntu and happy tinkering with Tracktion and Dexed.. lol!

I'm hoping it's an upgrade to ANA and all current owners get a nice upgrade offer.

Choice comments from Sonic Academy on social media...

Aliasing is completely gone... the whole audio engine has been rewritten from scratch. It's also currently using about 30% less cpu. The OSCs sound amazing.

The serum type stuff is only one small part. Personally I love vintage synth sounds.

Seems very nice :) Now, if they price it $99, I'll definitely check it :D It just looks more sexy with this price :hihi:

So this is an update for ANA with "real" wavetables? Great, the sample sounds nice. Also I'm glad to read that they solved the aliasing problems and reduced the CPU, these two issues are currently keeping me from using ANA.

TBH I thought that they abandoned ANA, glad that it is not the case.

Any hints yet on a timetable for release? I won A.N.A. in the KVR Charity auction this year and I'm enjoying it so far.

Marketing bogus detected. Every VA synth aliases. :P

Sorry, had to nitpick at least once today. Back to ANA. :)
