Superbooth Video: Synthstrom Deluge V2 Features Explored
Rounik Sethi on Sat, May 5th | 0 comments
Explore some of the new and advanced features available in the Synthstrom Deluge 2 update coming in June 2018. There's an impressive array of new features in this portable music workstation.

Synthstrom Deluge. It's a portable music workstaiton: groovebox, sampler, synthesizer, drum machine... a music computer away from your computer that can run upto 64 voices/tracks simultaneously.

In this video Ian from Synthstrom outlines the major new features coming to version 2 in June 2018. One of the key new features is the new Arrange View (timeline view). Think of this as Song Mode on steroids... what every good sequencer could do with.

There's a new analog emulation filter and tons and tons of innovative features you might won't find on any competing instruments.

Beware: This video is 24 minutes long and, if you watch to the end, will probably convince you to buy the Deluge right away...
