I recently discovered this synth when I heard it mentioned on a podcast. It's called Chro 8080, its not a VST it's a reaktor ensemble, but it needs to be mentioned here as it's SO powerful in terms of sound quality.

It's designed to emulate the "Jp-8080, virus ti2, roland juno 106 and alpha juno 2 in one box"

It is CPU heavy on my system which is an FX 8350 , but I am sure a modern CPU wouldnt be too bad.

It is currently in Beta, and it's cost is 50% as it's in beta. (50 Euros) but it's worth every single penny.

Check out the soundcloud at

Stop looking back, you aren't going that way

Does it require full Reaktor or Player? Too lazy to check for myself :hihi: Anyway thanks for the heads up. :)

I only have the full version of Reaktor so I cant tell for the player. Ask to the developper on Facebook, he's really reactive and nice.

After an hour of testing, I can tell to everyone here : THIS THING IS A BEAST.
It's incredibly snappy, reactive, it can be a hell of agressivity or a warm analogish sounding synth.
Everyone, try this synth.

I know my post will sound a little bit excessive. But I'm really serious : It's probably already my goto synth for basses, leads and maybe pads too...

Did you get a demo or did you just message him and pay up? I'm very tempted as it does sound extremely nice.

Finally someone decided to emulate something actually worth emulating :party: :D

The demos do sound great!

Judging from the GUI it's mostly a JP 80x0 emulation? Or are there some extras?

It requires the full Reaktor. No demo available, product is still in beta. You can msg the maker, but he said he will be here soon to answer further questions.
More BPM please

It's a Reaktor Ensemble, Would you put Form or Prism in the Modular forum?

they work in player.
it is a synth though and not modular as such in this instance (although you can of course get inside it) so id say here is fine, but add reaktpr ensemble to the title maybe?
advertise in this space.

if it only works in full reaktor, it belongs in the modular forum, as that is what reaktor is....
