Use Audio Plugiator

   (0 reviews)

The Use Audio Plugiator Loaded may be small enough to fit in your backpack, but don't let its modest size fool you. This potent table top synthesizer offers just what you've been wanting: a fully tweakable and expandable sound module — that performs just like the synth its emulating. Rather than just playing back sample sounds, the innovative DSP-based Plugiator Loaded uses Virtual Circuit Modeling to emulate entirely different synth architectures for impressive, spot-on results — and it comes with four more synths! Capable of storing eight plug-ins, each with 100 presets, it's time to cross new sonic terrain with the Use Audio Plugiator Loaded!

Innovative Virtual Circuit Modeling - not sampling

Due to the Plugiator's Virtual Circuit Modeling, its plug-ins sound and behave like genuine hardware - not just recordings of it - for a livelier, more intense sound.

Capable of storing eight plug-ins and tons of presets

The Plugiator can store up to eight different DSP plug-ins and can load any one at a time at a push of a button. Each plug-in comes with 100 presets, allowing you to store up to a whopping 800 different sounds.

Simple to switch between presets and plug-ins

Besides its incredible sound, the Plugiator's wealth of easy-to-use control knobs may well be its next biggest asset. Not only do you get the full-on sound of classic synths, the Plugiator has eight knobs to really get inside and sculpt the tone. The last three knobs control delay time, the level of the delay effect, and chorus - and these knobs stay constant throughout all plug-ins. Though, the other five knobs morph to different sound design parameters, depending upon which plug-in you're using. Plus, because it's so really simple to switch between plug-ins and presets, you have access to a stunning array of tones at just the push of a button or turn of a knob!

Includes four free factory plug-ins:

Thanks to its modular design, the Plugiator can load different synthesis plug-ins with different synthesis architectures, enabling a wide field of sound possibilities. Each Plugiator comes with eight amazing plug-ins.


MiniMax is the highly renowned replica of the famous synth legend. This plug-in features incredibly fat and responsive sound, plus brain-dead really simple control. Tweaking its knobs is pure fun!


While the oscillators of the LightWave are based on wavetables, the aftermath is virtual analog, giving you wide control of the sound. From complex pads to intense leads, LightWave offers a vast range of sonic possibilities.


The B4000 turns your CME into the Queen of Organs. The genuine sound of a genuine living electromechanical 400 pound monster. It's lively, authentic, and expressive.
VocodizerThe Vocodizer is one of the most flexible vocoders ever developed. Plug in your microphone and enjoy spectacular, voice modulated sounds. This plug-in is available as a free download on the Use Audio website once you've registered.


The Prodyssey is modeled after the historic counterpart and rival of Plugiator's Minimax-modeled synthesizer. With a distinctively different character, more control possibilites and an amazingly easy-to-get interface, the Prodyssey is still as exciting today as it was "in the days!"


The first polyphonic and programmable synth to become popular also became an instant legend - he Pro-12 has all of its smooth analog sound and plenty of presets which were heard everywhere throughout the 80s.


A new synth creation and a journey into killer sounding FM synthesis. Thanks to its easy-to-use interface, sound design for FM is more fun than ever before.

Drums 'n' Bass

Amazing analog drum machine sounds with a bass section - Drums 'n' Bass will turn your Plugiator into a true beat box.

Useful plug-in manager software

When connected to your computer via USB, the plug-in manager software lets you adjust each plug-in via its GUI and manage the presets you want stored inside your plugiator!

Online sound database

Use Audio also integrated an online sound database into the friendly plug-in manager software that lets you listen to new user-uploaded presets by just clicking your mouse. Rather than downloading and installing sound banks to see whether or not they're right for you, you can conveniently listen to new sounds from the internet instantly with your Plugiator.

Highly portable

The Plugiator is incredibly small, yet offers you an arsenal of synth power wherever you need it. You have no need for a computer with the Plugiator, just toss it into your backpack with a 25-key MIDI controller, and you're ready to hit the stage. This small box has eight encoder knobs, ten "quick pads" for finding your favorite presets, MIDI I/O and Thru, USB, a microphone in, stereo line outs, and a headphone output. Take your music anywhere!
