The Germany based company Ploytec, known for the production of USB drivers, now updates the firmware of the PL2 mini synthesizer to Version 2.0.
The PL2 generates an enormous variety of sounds – from soft to aggressive – with the help of two oscillators, creating four square waves and using a digital and analog filter.
The maximum duophonic synthesizer PL 2 receives its data completely via MIDI.
Now the PL2 can be programmed for specific note limits and MIDI channels, gains MIDI polyphonic aftertouch and velocity filter control, plus tuning, wobbling and more waveform options, including bassdrum.
About Ploytec GmbH:
Markus Medau, a developer and keyboardist with the Berlin band Edit_H ,born in 1972, joined forces in 1999 with Werner Wirsum, an information scientist born in 1968, to develop USB ASIO drivers. It all began with Cubase, a computer, and the lack of an audio input. Reputable manufacturers soon secured licenses (Apogee, SoundDevices, TerraTec, and Yamaha, later followed by Access, Alesis, Lexicon, Numark, Steinberg, Tascam and others). Kicking off their hardware business in early 2004 with the founding of Ploytec GmbH, the entrepreneurs are now busy developing USB2 audio hardware and software.
