It's Easy to use
Analog Lab doesn’t blind you with knobs, faders, patch cables and drop-down menus. It’s geared up to inspire, not confuse.
Analog Lab is a marvel of software design, combining every synth and keyboard audio engine from the instruments of V Collection in one place. You wouldn’t know it by just looking, though. We’ve kept things simple and intuitive. Key parameters are mapped to a simple selection of controls; browsing sounds makes sense; there’s no guesswork. We analyzed the way people actually use software instruments, and created Analog Lab to inspire your creativity, not get in its way.
Simple, effective, intuitive, and ready to help you make music.
Analog Lab isn’t a static instrument, it helps you explore your creativity, and can be personalized to bring out the best in you.
You might think that trying to find the right sound from thousands of options might be an impossible task, but the preset explorer is your gateway to discovery. Every preset has been tagged and categorized, with descriptions, cool titles. This means you can search for any term, or select the exact phrases you want. You can even use AI to find similar sounds to your current preset.
Analog Lab is both fun for beginners, but also has huge depth for professionals to explore.
Combine sounds you love into a dynamic “Multi” patch; mix levels and add studio quality effects; set split points to play multiple sounds at once. If you own V Collection, you can also open up presets in their dedicated instrument to get full access to all the controls and parameters. Or, you can just play. That’s the beauty of Analog Lab.
