Sonic Academy’s Ana Synth seems to fly under the radar for some reason. I’ve been playing around with it on and off for a while and I have to say that I quite like it. It’s sound is right there in the late 80′s and early 90′s digital sound, think JD-990, D-50 and Trinity. And speaking of the Trinity, I’ve been able to recreate a few patches from my TR rack on Ana with surprisingly close results.
Ana Synth runs about 80$ (which is a near steal!) and I think it’s well worth the value if you want something with a bit different flavor in your VST line up.
