"Here is an original theme that sounds similar to Blade Runner type stuff. Performed on the Sequential Prophet-6 Synthesizer using a slightly tweaked version of Preset 360. Recorded direct to the Zoom Q3HD video recorder. 8/27/2015"

"Introducing Zero Hybrid Synthesizer. In this video, Fretless Fingers walks through the features of the synth. Like what you see? Zero is available for free trial and purchase in the Propellerhead Shop. http://bit.ly/1MOHogB"
But it's not just for FM.
Zero also packs in additive, subtractive, and RM synthesis, flexible graphical envelopes, and three high quality on-board effects; chorus, delay, and reverb.
Factory presets by renowned sound designers Aiyn Zahev, eXode, and Navi Retlav Studio provide you quick access to a wide variety of sounds, like EDM plucks, lush pads, and aggressive bass.
Zero is a powerful beast, but still user friendly and fun for experimentation.
Zero packs additive, subtractive, FM, and RM synthesis into one very flexible and powerful synth. Six additive waveform generators, called operators, can modulate each other through frequency or ring modulation. There are two multi-mode filters for subtractive synthesis. Low frequency modulation is available through dedicated LFOs and envelopes in the operators, two global LFOs, and a comprehensive mod matrix. Three high quality on-board effects; chorus, delay, and reverb, complete the signal path.
300 factory presets designed by Aiyn Zahev, eXode, and Navi Retlav Studio provide you quick access to a wide variety of fresh sounds. Looking for EDM presets? Aiyn Zahev and eXode give you their best work.
Zero's operators have powerful additive synthesis engines with virtually endless possibilities. Start with a variable sine/triangle/saw/pulse waveform and duplicate it at any of 126 harmonic frequencies with adjustable magnitude and phase. Tweak the final output by setting the number of harmonics and spacing between harmonics. The operator waveforms are generated using up to 1024 sine oscillators for superb quality. Unison of up to 4 voices is provided.
Audio Rate Modulation
Frequency Modulation (FM) and Ring Modulation (RM) can be controlled by adjusting knobs in the matrix section. The ability to use FM and RM with the many unique waveform possibilities of the operators is one of the main reasons why Zero stands out in the Rack Extension crowd.
Zero offers two multi-mode filters, each with 16 modes. Each operator can be individually mixed into the filter inputs and the filters can be routed in series. The latest Zero Delay Feedback technology was incorporated into the filters for a state of the art design.
Low Frequency Modulation
Zero has very flexible envelopes, and plenty of them. Click and drag editing takes place in the graphical display so you can easily see the envelope shape. Each envelope can have up to six stages, with either free or tempo synced times. And the envelopes can be looped for powerful modulation possibilities. Each operator has a dedicated LFO, plus two global LFOs are available. A mod matrix provides routing to over 150 destinations.
The last stage in the signal path is the built-in effects. The Roland Dimension D style chorus nicely thickens up a sound. The Delay offers many tweakable parameters beyond the basics. And the reverb is a high quality Feedback Delay Network algorithm. The effect parameters can be modulated, nice for things like delay or reverb ducking.
Zero has numerous CV ins and outs for external control and modulation."

Funny, I don't think I ever really noticed the capital VA in the name before now. VA as in Virtual Analog of course.
"The eleVAta is a virtual analog poly-synth with a big analog sounds. The same DSP analog modeling synthesizer technology used in the DarkStar has been beefed up for this sound module. It is 16-voice polyphonic and has 8 multi-timbral parts.
The front panel swivels 90 degrees to facilitate rack-mounting or desktop use. Knobs are plainly laid out for the oscillator, filter, envelope, and LFO sections in a simple, streamlined and intuitive interface.
The Elevata is also upgradeable via EPROMs you can buy for a little over $100 each and install yourself. The Vocoda EPROM adds vocoder capability. There is room for up to 3 EPROMs. With multiple (6) outputs, stereo inputs for processing external audio, and full MIDI implementation"
