It’s difficult to believe ImpOSCar2 is a virtual synth. And a versatile one at that: fat pads, you got them; crunching basses, you got them; and tons and tons of new presets mean fun for all the family.
ImpOSCar2 is the successor to our multi-award winning impOSCar software synthesizer. If you’re not familiar with the impOSCar then you’re in for a real treat. However, if you fell in love with it first time around, be prepared to fall in love all over again.
