"Another top-shelf piece of virtual kit from AAS that’s easy to use and features a huge preset collection." - Joe Silva, Future Music (Platinum Award)
"I heartily recommend AAS’s Ultra Analog to anyone who likes working with computer-based synths. The simple interface hides the heart of an analogue beast—from throbbing bass to supersonic leads, it’s all here. If you only have money for one serious commercial synth plug-in, make it this one." - Derek Johnson, Sound On Sound
"The basses are absolutely fantastic, covering just about all of the hot destinations, and there are some real gems in the poly, leads and arpgeggiator categories, too. Is it what I’d call ultra-analog-sounding? Unequivocally, you betcha!" - Jason Scott Alexander, Remix
