“There are a lot of VAs out there but Admiral Quality’s has the advantage of offering stellar quality at a reasonable price. If you love your analogues, it would be a crime not to experience what it has to offer.” – CM Mag.
Get ready for a new experience in virtual analog synthesis! Poly-Ana uses a different approach than most other VA soft-synths which we feel delivers a sound more authentic to the early analog synths that inspired her features. This “brute-force” method admittedly requires more processing power than other common techniques, but is a far truer model of the functioning of real analog instruments. If you obsess over the quality of your sound like we do then you won’t mind using a bit more CPU power to help get you closer to that real analog sound; a sound that so many other VA synths fall too-far short of. (Note that Poly-Ana also offers Quality and Anti-Aliasing controls to allow for lower CPU usage during performance-time at the expense of sound quality.) Poly-Ana’s voice architecture is an ambitious combination of all the best features of the famous analog classics, plus a few unique and original features (totaling 210 controls, plus a full 5 octave velocity sensitive virtual keyboard!) which, while possible back in the day, would have been prohibitively expensive to implement in hardware. But as a software-only product, Poly-Ana doesn’t face these limitations, and we held nothing back in designing our “ultimate analog dream synth”. Combine this with a classic-styled design that puts every parameter a single click away, with large, easy to grab knobs and switches that behave like the real-world items; and with no hidden drill-down menus so that each and every control is prominently displayed out where you can see it; Poly-Ana offers a true alternative for software synthesis.

See Poly-Ana’s CHANGES list for the long (and ongoing) history of the maintenance and improvement updates made to this product. And remember, our Upgrade Protection Policy means that your license purchase is good not only for version 1.x of Poly-Ana, but for the entire 2.x series as well! Considering it’s been in version 1.x for over 11 years (and growing in capability all that time) that means it should be a very long time before we ever charge existing customers again for the same product. (We’re musicians ourselves and dislike that practice as much as you do!)
