Last month we brought you news of its public beta but now U-He has released the official version of their Repro-1, modelled on the Sequential Circuits Pro-1.
A spokesperson told us, "Repro-1 dives into the past for analogue inspiration, reverently modelling a classic synth. Every detail of the original was captured using component-level modelling technology to create the most authentic model possible. All the subtle characteristics and quirks found in the original are present in Repro-1. Repro-1 is a fierce synth: hard working, raw sounding and immensely playable."
