Cakewalk's Z3TA+ bears a signature sound that has been used in electronic, trance, and dance productions around the globe for nearly a decade. Its sound synthesis generation engine features a per-oscillator waveshaping capability, vast filters, multi-stage envelope generators, morphing, and advanced modulation matrix with powerful effects routing.

Z3TA+ 2 offers improved controls via a complete user interface overhaul for extensive, hands-on control of parameters including envelopes, effects routing, waveshaping, and performance functions. Real-time performance and expression controls are centralized into the Performance Module featuring the new Adaptive Pitch Bend.

Z3TA+ 2 loads all original Z3TA+ patches. Its new browser promises easy access and organization of patches. Z3TA+ 2 also includes hundreds of new presets from renowned sound designers Nico Herz of Big Tone Studios (who crafted many of the original Z3TA+ patches), Francesco Silvestri/FI Sound, Frank Genus/Pro Sounds, and Chad Beckwith/FI Sound/Patch Arena.

Cakewalk states that Z3TA+ 2 will be available on its Website on August 4, 2011, and that customers who purchase Z3TA+ 1.5 starting July 18, 2011 will get a free upgrade to Z3TA+ 2 when it becomes available.

Registered Z3TA+ customers can upgrade for $49.
