Are you always on the lookout for outstanding sounds? Too much time is spent, sometimes wasted, in creating and searching for that aggressive bass, or a fatter sawtooth lead, or whatever sounds that make a track shine.

Here at Archetype we set out to find quick and easy ways to create top-notch sounds based on the characteristics of 5 synthesis algorithms: substractive, supersaw emulation, FM, physical modeling, and hard synced unison voice sawtooth.

We also focused on creating an advanced multi-effects processor for diverse effects and an easy-to-use arpeggiator system to generate inspiring and musical phrases.

The Arc 5 V2.10 is the culmination of our efforts: a simplified the user interface with just 8 controllers for fast and easy control, powerful sounds from 5 synth modes with 2 voice layers, 1 multi-effects processor, and a 32-step DUAL arpeggiator system.
