Analog Obsession VST Plugin Review

by MMP

We are going to introduce one of the last released analog plug-ins, a VST called Analog Obsession. This plugin is actually based on an idea from a real analog synth and it has been developed by two veteran developers that have experience in designing synthesizers for over 30 years. It is capable of emulating all basic synthesis types such as subtractive synthesis and wavetable synthesis.

This article aims to help out people who are wondering whether they should buy this plugin or not.

Analog Obsession (or AA for short) is a VST plugin that emulates an analog subtractive synthesizer. It’s main target is to provide us with the sound of an analog synthesizer and it does this quite well. Its sound can be compared to the sound of some famous synths such as the Prophet 5, Moog modulars and the Minimoog, but also to other instruments such as Oberheim OB-X, Akai MPC60 and ARP 2600 (even though this last instrument isn’t really a synth). The users manual states that there are a lot of similarities between these instruments and Analog Obsession, but don’t expect to find them in just one plugin.

Below are Specs on the BritBundle VST PLugins from Analog Obsession.

Here is BritBundle!

BritChannel, Britpressor and new BritPre.

While i update BritChannel and Britpressor, i’ve built BritPre. It has same preamp as BritChannel but it has lowpass and highpass filters. Instead of making my old plugin “LCF”, i redesigned it and combined with preamp.

These plugins are first line of updates with Catalina/Big Sur (M1 Processor) support. New GUIs, proper oversampling, Retina support and readout.

Also, plugins come with installers, now!
