Larger Interface

The latest update now includes a larger interface allowing for easier editing and tweaking. Great stuff!

Well done

The Va-2 runs perfectly as a stand alone synth and is very light on processing power which makes it run very well as a plug in in Abelton. Dealing with the company has been first rate, and the full featured demos of every program on their website made choosing add on packs very simple. The UI is extremely intuitive and all of the sound banks sound great. I've been using the VA-2 for a year now for various projects and will be buying more of their synths in the future

An amazing virtual synth. I'm extremely satisfied with the sounds that this synth can produce. I keep discovering new sounds and possibilities every time I use it due to the editing and effects capabilities. One of the greatest things about it is that it's really easy on RAM. Absolutely love it and highly recommend it! 4.5 stars out of 5 because I wish the interface was a little bigger.
