Olga is a virtual analog synthesizer unlike any other, designed from first principles to be distinctive.
Imagine a handmade experiment from an unlikely place, a synthesizer so full of life and character that it earns the right to be called a musical instrument. Olga encourages risk, experimentation, and exploration, and rewards you with unexpected and exciting sounds, vibrant and human. This is the dusty gem you could spend your life searching for.
Bezier Antialiased Dynamic Analog Synthesis System: Olga uses a truly new approach to DSP waveform generation to emulate glorious analog imperfection. Olga’s free running oscillators are in a constant state of structured variability, a deeply musical instability, free of aliasing artifacts and light on your CPU.
Gaussian Reactive Oscillator Overdrive Virtual Engine: Throughout Olga’s signal path, levels can be pushed through saturation and into full overdrive, with a thickness that develops organically, breathing life and character into your music.

*Note: Olga makes extensive use of the SSE2 processor instruction set for maximum CPU efficiency. Older CPUs (notably the pre-64 Athlon XP series) that do not support SSE2 will not recognize the standard version of Olga as a loadable plugin. A less optimized build that will run on older machines can be downloaded here. There is no difference in usage or licensing terms.
