A unique Drift parameter allows continuously variable detuning between oscillators for added analog realism, and the LFO, arpeggio, and delay effects all feature one-button tempo sync. The filter and amplitude can also be set to respond to velocity sensitivity for even more expressiveness. The user interface has been streamlined and simplified, updating the original instrument’s numeric-keypad-and-command-numbers with fast, simple-to-use pop-up menus and an improved value display window.

In addition to all of the voicing and modulation that made the original sound so great, Cherry Audio has added a number of creative and convenient features aimed at modern music makers. These include an expanded Voice Modulation section with up to six simultaneous destinations, a modern button for beefy lows and crystalline highs, and advanced one-click UI magnification.
