Synth has been well received since launching back in November - and now the price has dropped

Waves, best known for high-end plug-ins that are widely used by the world's top-flight producers, has slashed the price of Element 2.0, a polyphonic virtual analog synth introduced in November that the company says is "designed to deliver the fat, warm sounds of classic analog synths, with all the precision, flexibility and control of a cutting-edge software instrument."

Element 2.0 is the first synthesizer to use Waves' next-generation Virtual Voltage technology, and offers five integrated FX (delay, reverb, distortion, chorus, bitcrusher), a 16-step sequencer with Hold and Retrigger modes, MIDI learn and a large library of presets, all of which can of course be customised to your heart's content. The user interface, meanwhile, is kept as simple and uncluttered as possible.

The synth will work with Macs running OS X 10.9.5 (Mavericks) or above, and PCs running Windows 7 or above, and is now available for just $71 - a significant saving compared to the original asking price of $119. For more details, see
