reFX have released version 2 of their flagship VSTi Nexus. NEXUS2 comes with tons of new features and the expansion Dance Vol.2 is included for free. Furthermore, two more expansions have been released: Dance Vol.3 and SID.
NEXUS2 is a next generation ROM synthesizer of the highest quality that can turn your musical dreams into a stunning reality. Forget about stereotypical, boring, stale, old sounding ROM synths and embrace the power of NEXUS2 to evolve your productions to a new level of greatness.
NEXUS2 comes with over 70 new features and improvements. Here are most important ones:
– Expansion Dance Vol.2 already included! – 128 new presets, 500 MB of new samples
– Three skins (Black ‘evil’, Black ‘good’ and Cobalt) included for free
– New FX: analog phaser from Arts Acoustic – up to 16 stages. Smooth as silk
– New FX: stereo enhancer – widen or narrow the stereo field
– Feature Matrix: layers can be switched on/off separately
– New section: oscillator mix level
– Oscillators can be switched on/off separately
– Volume- and pan-control for each oscillator
– Dance Volume 2
135 dance presets that start where Vol.2 has stopped. Among others, you will find trendy jumpstyle sounds and fully playable, tonal kicks which will dedust your subwoofers for sure! Unique dance basses, crazy electro-sounds, characteristic powerleads, sidechained sawlines, superb pads, awesome drumskits, and much more.
If anything deserves to be called “cult”, it’s the C64’s SID-soundchip. 200 (!) presets give you access to the original sound, arps, and drums of that past era, partly created by using an original C64. All sequences of the mp3 demo are arpeggio-sequences played by NEXUS2. This is a must-have not only for nostalgics – SID also creates perfectly massive sounds for weird electro-styles!
