Yours to tweak

More than just factory presets. More than just classic instruments. These sounds are yours to mould, to shape into a sonic form that suits you. And not only that; it’s never been easier. Analog Lab V offers simple streamlined features offering multi-axis flexibility so you can go from bright to dark, harsh to smooth, fast to tender - without hesitation.

Below the surface, Analog Lab V combines all the sound engines from our award-winning V Collection instruments - iconic instruments reimagined in software thanks to exclusive analog and physical modeling. Our critically-acclaimed modeling technologies are designed to capture every nuance of the legendary instruments behind V Collection’s emulations, down to individual components. Piano strings to pickups, tonewheels to transistors, the results are indistinguishable from their hardware predecessors.

TAE®

The exclusive analog modeling technology that makes our virtual instrument emulations indistinguishable from the originals. By accurately mimicking the characteristics of analog oscillators, filters, and soft clipping, we can provide astonishing component-accurate detail and authentic analog charm in equal measure.

Phi®

State-of-the-art physical modeling designed to provide real material depth to our acoustic and electro-acoustic virtual instruments. With advanced mathematical algorithms, our engineers recreate every aspect of the original instruments, down to the finest vibrations - for a response that sounds and feels as tangible as the real thing.

Layers & Multis

Want to play a funky bass with your left hand and a customized twirly Wurli with your right? How about bringing in a layer of strings in with your expression pedal while playing that piano ballad? The Multi feature lets you simply drag and drop to combine any two of your favorite presets in whatever creative way you desire.

Intuitively explore splits and layers, complete with discrete options for key range, MIDI channels, transposition and response to common MIDI CC messages from controllers like touch, wheels and pedals. You can even save your multi as a preset for when you need it again.

Get on stage

It’s one thing sitting in your home studio playing around with sounds, but when you hit the stage, you need to know exactly what to expect.

Analog Lab V features Stage mode, which presents everything you need in one streamlined view - everything is bigger and clearer to give you peace of mind on dimly lit stages. Non-essential toolbars and options are hidden, giving you focused visual feedback so you can concentrate on nailing your performance.

Prepare every sonic component of your show before you even think about stepping on stage. Organize your favorite presets, FX, and mix settings into songs and setlists with drag-and-drop ease.

When you’re in the zone, the last thing you need is interruption. Instantly switch to your next cued preset with assigned buttons, and tweak settings on the fly to deliver the dynamics that your set deserves. Let Analog Lab V accompany you on stage, and you’ll never look back.
