Arminator is a much loved free CS-80 emulation from Krakli Plugs. While not designed to be an out and out pure emulation it sure does a fantastic job of dishing out Vangelis style sounds aplenty.
After spending some time last weekend meticulously multi-sampling Arminator for use with the MPC Live, yesterday saw an update on their Facebook page informing the masses of the new and improved Arminator 2 with a whopping 5 banks of 128 patches!
Fresh additions include:
The ability to KeySplit anywhere on a key across 10 octaves
Mono Poly on individual lines
Better scaling of some controls (Filter Freq etc)
Ability to sync the LFO to KeyPress
Keytracking on the LowPass Filter
Sine Oscillator on the Line Amp can now be a 1 or 2 sub octave
Line 2’s Envelope can be delayed by up to 500ms from keypress
I absolutely adore the sound of this plugin, and this is of course helped by the amazing patch design.
Unfortunately it is 32-bit only but this can easily be rectified by an app like JBridge if your DAW doesnt include a bridge of it’s own.
