Surf the synthetic wave, sample your music.
Sledge 2.0 introduces new features and sound innovations that set the instrument above any competitor, thanks to a mix of pure synthesis and sound sampling.
In addition to the incredible sound engine and the user-friendly vintage style control panel, the new features further expand the synthesizer's power and versatility.
Auto Dual Mode, mix the sound
Combine and play two sounds at the same time, in Split or Layer mode.
Every sound combination can be stored in any of the 999 available presets.
Hold the loop and pitch the sound
Pitch and Hold functions can be enabled separately for the Lower and Upper sounds in Dual Mode, allowing you to keep the sample loop running while playing the upper sound.
Elevate your performance.
Let your samples play
Sound samples and new waves can be loaded in the internal memory, played by OSC 1 and modifiable by all parameters of the control panel, adding other oscillators, setting filters, envelopes and effects.
