Waves releases Element 2.0
Waves has updated its virtual analog synthesizer Element to version 2.0.
Element 2.0 is an analog-style polyphonic instrument designed in order to deliver the fat, warm sounds of classic analog synths with all the precision, flexibility and control of a cutting-edge software instrument.
Announced as "the first synthesizer to take advantage of the next generation of Waves’ Virtual Voltage technology", Element 2.0 includes a large array of features including five integrated effects, a 16-step sequencer, MIDI learn for all controls and a massive, fully tweakable preset library.
All Element 2.0 parameters are laid out right there in front of you and thus easily accessible for both the studio and live performances.
- High-resolution oscillators and analog envelope behavior
- Filters with zero-delay feedback
- Effects include delay, reverb, distortion, chorus and two distinct crushers
- Keep the legacy: choose between Element 1 and Element 2 modes at the click of a button
- 16-step sequencer with Hold and Retrigger modes that can be used as a modulation source
- Use as a plugin or as a standalone application
Announced at a regular MSRP of $119, Element 2.0 is currently available for a $71 introductory price.
