Saurus employs True Analog Modelling Technology and a host of unique features, bringing the classic analog sound into the digital realm with numerous innovative enhancements.

The circuits of several well respected performance synthesizers were carefully measured and analysed to capture the unique characteristics & response curve of the original hardware.This was used to reconstruct a truly accurate model of analog hardware. Add to that a high quality oscillator and filter section, a feature-laden arpeggiator bundled with an extremely wide range of modulation possibilities and you've got not just another synth with character but one that also offers a multitude of sound sculpting opportunities.

Main Features:

  • True Analog Modeling Technology.
  • High-end sound quality.
  • Covers all important aspects of traditional analog synths.
  • Low CPU usage.
  • Mono, Legato & Polyphonic modes employing analog voice management.
  • Two Syncable Oscillators and two Sub Oscillators.
  • Not just standard waveforms like square and saw but also a large number of waveform types from exotic analog synths.
  • Pulse Width Modulation and Oscillator Sync applicable to every waveform.
  • Oscillator Drift, Phase and Noise Modulation controls.
  • Noise FM, AM and Ring Modulation for Oscillators.
  • High quality analog filter section with self-oscillation, nonlinearity, 6 filter types, filter FM and filter feedback.
  • LFOs capable of running at audio-rate.
  • Arpeggiator section with extensive configuration possibilities; swing, chord steps, step velocity, ...
  • Modulation Matrix with several new modulation features, including unique modulation value modifiers.

What an amazing synth! Just rediscovered it after not giving it much attention for a while and i must say it really impressed me with its truly analog sound. I used to go to diva for those flavors but now i found out that Saurus sounds even better. Its a shame that the interface looks a bit dull (as tone2 website) but the sound kicks a55. Actually i believe the reason it isnt a very popular synth is because of the interface being kind of weird in color/shadows and proportions. Actually all tone2 synths suffer from this, i hope they will get a more inspired designer soon because design affects perception and lots of people are influenced by that.

Sound - 10/10

Ease of use - 8/10 (the arp/matrix screen could have been bigger)

Interface - 6/10
