VST manufacturer reFX announced the launch of its latest virtual analog synthezisers, Vanguard.

Developed and created by reFX founder Michael Kleps, Vanguard represents years of investment in knowledge and experience, giving users a warm and rich sounding synthesizer plug-in with all the benefits of modern digital technology.

Equipped with 31 different types of oscillators, including rarely found digital oscillators with new modulation options, Vanguard also includes 13 filter types with different slopes and includes a new kind of combined dual-filter variations.

Along with a delay and reverb, Vanguard features the Trancegate and Arpeggiator tools; Trancegate is a 16-step gate that allows users to create rhythmic gated patterns while the Arpgeggiator features inspiring patterns and several play modes.

Competitively priced at $89.99, and is available as a VST plug-in for PC and Mac (OS9 and OSX).

Owners of the discontinued JunoX2 synthesizer will also receive the (function reduced) Vanguard Lite loyalty version free of charge, and will be able to upgrade to Vanguard for $59.99.

Kleps comments that, “Vanguard is an important addition to the creative tools any musician, producer, writer or composer can add to their collection. Its' versatility and flexibility, coupled with its ground-breaking technologies will, we think, not only make Vanguard a desirable piece to own, but also an essential one”
