Image-Line Updates PoiZone To Version 2.0
Image-Line has updated their PoiZone synth plug-in to version 2.0. PoiZone 2 features a refined interface and is now available as either a standalone application, native FL Studio plug-in and AudioUnit plug-in, in addition to the existing VSTi version. The concern has also nicely updated their website.

â€¢ LFO and MOD Wheel modulation. Can be assigned to a wide range of performance parameters in PoiZone
PoiZone 2 features a warm, analog-modeled filter with self oscillation. Special attention has been given to precise filter tuning so that when KEYTRK is set to maximum, the PoiZone filter will track keyboard frequency precisely, so it can be used as an oscillator. Image-Line claims the PoiZone filter has bright and clean, or it can be grungy and angry when resonance is introduced as it features some light distortion with no aliasing.
Image-Line’s PoiZone 2 is available for Windows (standalone/VSTi/FL) and MacOS X 10.4 (standalone/VSTi/AU) for $79 beans. More information on Image-Line PoiZone 2.
