System requirements: The SJ-2 is a vsti instrument - it requires a vst compatible host, which runs under windows.  64bit DAWs may require bridging software. 14 MB hard disk space. (Mac version is at least 6 months away).
Of all the different kinds of vintage hardware synthesizers, our favourite has to be the wave of programmable polysynths which appeared during the eighties, such as the Jupiter 8 and the MKS-80 rack- mount. It wasn’t just the breakthroughs of polyphony & patch recall that made these instruments popular - they also had (and still have) a distinctive sound which is quite magical. We're very proud to present the SJ- 2 as our own tribute to these awesome, IC based beasts! It's no accident that the SJ-2 sounds the way it does - it features several layers of audio processing 'algorithms' designed to reproduce subtle audio nuances that you’ll find in analog synthesisers.  This ‘no stone left unturned’ approach is, of course, computationally expensive and depending on patch settings, your CPU may take a hammering.  Rest assured that we have tried to minimize CPU use as much as possible, spending many hours on optimisation.    (Unison modes and pitch lfo modulation are particularly harsh on the processor.)
This is identical to the retail version except for a short audio gap which occurs once per minute. 
CPU Usage: Quite Heavy
General Description: 6 note polyphonic, with double and unison modes. . Midi Learn for all parameters; Patch memory system with full library. Independent PWM lfos, velocity sensitivity, generous modulation routings and much more....
