Doepfer A-111-6 Eurorack synth
The A-111-6 offers a complete synth in the smallest space: a total of ten knobs, five toggle switches and ten CV sockets cavort on the front board. Oscillator, filter and envelope are on board, frequency and pulse width modulation included, even filter FM is possible. The resonance is capable of self-oscillation and can be played tonally as a sine waveform when set to the extreme. The envelope works optionally in AD, ADSR or AR modes. But that's not all: there is even room for an audio input on the mini-surface. Not only modular beginners should be happy about a complete synthesiser in such a small space, but especially live performers who need a lot of functionality in portable conditions.

BabyAudio All Plugin Bundle
Smooth Operator combines equalization, spectral compression and resonance suppression into a singular, intuitive workflow. Use it to eliminate harsh frequencies and shape your tonal balance. Spaced Out is a lush wet-FX generator, built for sending your sounds and vocals into weightless, heavenly orbit. Super VHS brings the sound of slightly out-of-tune synths, warm tape saturation, gritty samples and grainy reverbs. Comeback Kid is an intuitive delay plugin that lets your sounds return as a better version of themselves — loaded with character and analog flavor. Parallel Aggressor plays a fundamental part in getting a “big” mix sound. By processing multiple copies of the same track and blending them together you can add more punch to a mix. I Heart NY duplicates your audio and treats it with heavy compression, EQ and a bunch of non-linear magic.
