Electro Classics from Cherry Audio is full of their most sought-after virtual instruments with classic vintage analog synthesizers that helped define electronic music in the '70s and '80s. These virtual synths feature the exceptional touch of detail from Cherry Audio, such as scores of professionally designed presets, complete MIDI control with flexible mapping, oversampling control and many integrated effects. This makes the Electro Classics the complete package for today's music producers seeking to capture the sounds of yesterday.

Octave Cat
The Octave Cat synthesizer from Cherry Audio emulates the duophonic CAT synthesizer unleashed by Octave Electronics from the late '70s. Developed in partnership with The CAT's original designer, Cherry Aduio's Octave Cat retains all the deep growl and bite of the original hardware's savage sound, and replicates its aggressive resonant filter. This synth features a flexible modulation, screaming audio-range oscillator cross-mod and fierce oscillator sync of the original hardware and extends it with expanded polyphony, a robust integrated effects suite and a versatile dual-step sequencer.

The CA2600 synth from Cherry Aduio is a powerful, self-contained duophonic synthesizer inspired by the groundbreaking ARP 2600 synthesizer. Aspects of the original, like the quirky oscillator waves, the powerful ladder filter, the external audio input and preamp section were modeled with tremendous precision. The CA2600 has been thoughtfully updated for increased flexibility, with semi-normalled patch cabling, integrated effects and no hidden windows or menus in the audio path. The CA2600 synth delivers an unprecedented hands-on vintage synthesis experience like no other.

PS-20 Synthesizer
PS-20 is an ultra-realistic, polyphonic, hot-rodded synthesizer made by Cherry Audio in tribute to Korg's renowned MS-20. PS-20's dual highpass/lowpass filters super accurately recreate the MS-20's well-known raunchy sound in all of its glory. In addition to its unique filters, the MS-20 synth's signature feature is its modular-style patch panel. Cherry Audio has reconfigured the patch panel from the original instrument, adding many desired in and out patch points for all oscillators, filters and VCAs. This helped correct the confusing terminology of the original while throwing in a few extras that greatly expand its usability.

Polymode Synthesizer
Cherry Audio's Polymode synth is built wit inspiration from the groundbreaking Polymoog synthesizer. One of the world's first polyphonic synthesizers, its unique multiple parallel filter implementation and mod routings give it a sound like no other. Cherry Audio's Polymode synthesizer sidesteps any drawbacks of the original instrument and massively enhanced its capabilities. With a streamlined user interface and immense modulation capabilities, Polymode sets a new standard for animated, sonically evolving string, pad and choral tones.
