Lush 2

By providing "authentic analogue character" and one of the most extensive feature sets around, Lush 2 aims to fulfill the needs of the most demanding musicians and sound designers.

Since it uses a layered architecture (up to 8 layers per instance), Lush 2 provides endless sound-shaping possibilities. Each layer can be freely assigned to any MIDI channel or keyboard zone, and its audio output can be routed to any of the 11 available stereo busses.

Layers can either be used to create a single massive sound (where all layers respond to a single MIDI channel and a single keyboard zone) or to create several discrete timbres simultaneously (where each layer sounds on a different MIDI channel), which is quite convenient compared to loading multiple instances of the same plugin for each sound. In other words, Lush 2 is a truly multilayered instrument with a next-generation interface that makes splits, layers, and every conceivable combination beyond simple to set up.

Each module implemented in Lush 2 utilizes DSP algorithms of industry-leading sophistication to provide only the highest quality sound possible throughout every link in the signal chain. Each layer in Lush 2 can work as an independent synthesizer with its own polyphony, parameters, advanced arpeggiator, and a palette of only the finest 8 insert effects (two slots per single Layer).

In addition to a very sophisticated MIDI-learn implementation, an advanced modulation matrix is built into each layer allowing a whole other level of expressive control. Lush 2 also comes complete with a powerful built in mixer with layer-independent parametric equalizers and compressors. Three high quality send effects allow you to put the finishing touches on the final output.

Lush 2 also gives you a uniquely powerful preset management system. It allows the creation of presets for a single layer, for all 8 layers at once (including the mixer settings). But, there's more: you can even create presets for smaller blocks of parameters such as arpeggiator settings or the mixer's send effects. A generous factory library of more than 1600 presets in every flavor is included.

To top it all off, an intuitively designed preset browser keeps everything organized and easy-to-locate, even when dealing with something as enormous as the included library.
