The flexible, intuitive Retrologue emulates the warmth and fatness of classic analog synthesizers. Three virtual analog oscillators and a first-class set of filters produce a wealth of rich, inspiring sounds; its adaptable arpeggiator, powerful modulation system, and FX rack help make Retrologue the first choice for producers everywhere.

The famous arpeggio synth sound in the theme tune to the Netflix TV series Stranger Things is a classic piece of new wave synthpop and can be quickly recreated in Steinberg Retrologue VST virtual analog synthesizer. This video shows you how to set up the oscillators and shape the sound with a low pass filter, adjusting the filter envelope, resonance and a hint of distortion to find the sweet spot of the main sound. Set up the arpeggiator with eight steps, each with the correct pitch, and then go back to fine tuning the sound, including setting your MIDI controller to learn CC for the filter cutoff, so you can morph the sound in real time. Adding effects like chorus for added harmonics and a little reverb finish the job!

The title melody of the TV series “Stranger Things” and the name of the TV series “Stranger Things” belong to the respective rights holders, the brand name “Stranger Things” belongs to Netflix Studios, USA.

Analog-style, punchy kick drums are one of today’s favorite sounds for driving modern music along. This video shows how to create an analogue kick drum in Steinberg Retrologue VST virtual analog synthesizer. Retrologue 2 makes it quick and easy to create customized synthesized kick drums. In mono mode, set key follow to zero, choose a low pitch in the oscillator mixer, set the filter section to around 60 Hz and turn up the resonance to produce maximum impact subharmonics. Turn the envelope control up, fine tune the fade out and decay parameters to hit the sweet spot and you have a quick and easy synth kick drum. But you can do much more, for example adding a little distortion for extra harmonics and experimenting with a wide range of subtle setting changes for different analog sounds.

The Retrologue 2 VST virtual analog synthesizer is great for creating talking synth and wobble lead synth sounds. Creating these great lead synth sounds with Retrologue using the oscillators, filters and distortion, this video shows you how to create a wobble lead synth and talking synth sound.

Retrologue 2 is an atmospheric VST virtual analog synthesizer with loads of features to create amazingly rich sounds from pure leads to lush pads, animated arpeggios, captivating effects and screaming atonal noises. This video provides five key tips on how to harness the controls of Retrologue to create some great sonic interest, harnessing the single- and multi-oscillators, LFO, modulation, high pass low pass combination, all pass filter, distortion, effects and much more to shape a wide range of different sounds.

You can use the Retrologue 2 virtual analog synthesizer to create a warm lush pad, adding fantastic atmospheric analog sounds to your productions. This video shows how quickly you can create great pad sounds, using polyphonic mode with different oscillators in pulse and multi-mode to create multiple voices. Using detune and adding sub helps to make a massive sound, then you can make fine adjustments by tweaking the envelopes with a low-pass filter and adjusting the attack, decay and filter velocity. For final touches, using the noise generator, adjusting the resonance, adding effects and assigning parameters to a MIDI controller. Add the sound you have created to Cubase or any other DAW to add a real sense of drama and depth to any song or soundscape.
