Steinberg releases Retrologue 2


Steinberg Media Technologies recently released their latest virtual instrument, Retrologue 2, a virtual analog synthesizer.

Compatible with both VST and AU hosts, this versatile synthesizer conveys ample power and provides a vast range of sounds that add to its tonal richness and complexity. Picking up where the previous version left off, Retrologue 2 meticulously emulates the sound of analog circuitry and its associated warmth.

Three virtual analog oscillators provide up to eight de-tunable voices alongside an additional sub oscillator and noise generator. The filter section comprises 24 filter shapes and five distortion modes. The flexible Arpeggiator, a powerful modulation system and comprehensive set of effects, including reverb, delay and the innovative three-band Resonator, stretch the creative envelope, only to be complemented by the extensive collection of exclusive presets.

A 30-day trial version of Retrologue 2 for evaluation without feature restrictions is available from the product pages.

"Our goal was to increase the sonic spectrum of Retrologue 2 with new features without losing the intuitive concept of the instrument," said Matthias Quellmann, Senior Marketing Manager for Steinberg. "The result is a full-fledged virtual analog synthesizer with an amazing level of quality and performance."

Features at a glance:

  • Classic virtual analog synthesizer optimized for low CPU load.
