Telefunken AK47
MIC Telefunken Elektroakustik AK47

TAL U-NO-LX 2
SW Togu Audio Line TAL-U-NO-LX

U-NO-LX is seen on the horizon as a worthy peer to any offering, from any developer; independent or commercial. I would be very grateful if TAL were to release other classic VA synths of this calibre. It is this reviewer’s findings that TAL U-NO-LX is the reigning prince of virtual Juno synths.

PLUGIN/FX iZotope RX 2

iZotope RX 2 includes a set of excellent plugins for restoration- noise reduction, hum removal, click removal, clipping removal, etc. The plugins alone are worth the price of admission, but the true value of RX is in its ability as a standalone application as a wave editor and restoration tool.
