Aria Sounds London Symphonic Strings

First Violins, which is one of five parts of Aria Sounds’ London Symphonic Strings, is an excellent sounding orchestral instrument with several fine patches — I especially like intensity of the pizzicato and the lifelike smoothness of the legato.

Taken as a whole, V-STUDIO 700 offers the “tactile feel” of working in a traditional studio, but in a way that takes advantage of everything modern technology has to offer. The system represents the best that software and hardware have to offer with amazing control, integration, and sound quality.

BBE Sonic Maximizer 482i
EQ BBE Sonic Maximizer 482i

The BBE Sonic Maximizer 482i uses an interesting adaptive EQ and adjusts phase relationship of various frequencies. What it lacks in controllable functionality, it makes up for in pure and undefinable sweetness. Best used in live situations due to unbalanced jacks.

The JP-8080 is a rackmount/desktop version of the JP-8000 virtual analog synthesizer. The VA synthesis engine is the first of its kind from Roland. Both this and the JP-8000 were the original synths to include a "supersaw" waveform, a simulated 7-oscillator detuned sawtooth wave.

Egnater Silversmith

Sister pedal to the Egnater Goldsmith Overdrive, high gain distortion and boost. Similar to the Gold this Silversmith cranks the gain, articulate and quality build, well worth the price of admission. This series of pedals by amp maker Egnater are rather peerless in look and tone, big recommends.

This is a four voice mid-1980s programmable synthesizer. Using inexpensive mid-1980s technology (its street price in 1986 was $300), it crudely emulates an analog filter using "phase distortion"; it has a DX7 quality to its sound.
