Extreme Power at Low Cost
You may need to pay a lot to get true analog quality sound, opt to use hardware with its many disadvantages or need an extremely powerful processor to cope with the demands of software.
Once again, enter Saurus: Finally true analog sound no longer requires expensive hardware, even in full stereo unison, full polyphony or at maximum settings. Very few synthesizers that have analog themes can claim they have such little demand let alone broad sound, letting Saurus stand tall.
