Low-level modular softsynth for Windows. Analog Box 2 is both a generator and processor of digital audio. It works much like an electrical circuit, you place objects on the screen and connect them together. The colorful graphics interface gives you complete and immediate control over the virtual circuit while the DSP engine transparently optimizes itself for high performance. With ABox2, you can build synthesizers, effects, controllers, mixers, musical machines and just about any other frankenstein concept you can dream up. ABox2 has been used for radio editing, live DJ mixing, scientific research, education and generalized sonic mayhem. Its light touch on CPU resources makes ABox2 an ideal choice for multi-application work, especially on slower PC's.

Good Points
High performance. Small footprint. Real-time control. Ultimately flexible. Hot editing and construction. Undo/Redo. Multiple sound cards, midi controllers and virtual devices. Read most media formats. VST effects and instruments.
Bad Points
ABox2 is low-level, you get the power and flexibility at the cost of having to design your own systems from simple components. ABox2 allows you to make mistakes, not all sounds will be 'pretty' (perhaps a good point) There will be the usual Win32/SoftSynth latency bewteen wave input and output.
