NEXUS2 explores new sonic territory delivering complex, ultra-fat, contemporary soundstorms that sound as good as the most expensive and best hardware available today. A powerful and flexible architecture is the foundation that supports the immediately useful and spontaneously engaging design of the instrument. Every aspect of NEXUS2 was built to produce music of the highest quality, quickly, with the least amount of fuss.

NEXUS2 features a world-class 32 step arpegiator with note-transposition, an agile and simple 32 step trance gate, industry leading reverb licensed from Arts Acoustic, and a sophisticated modulation-matrix that will help you sculpt the sound.

NEXUS2 provides you with everything you need to create your next hit, including a comprehensive 4GB library of over 880 sounds covering a significant sonic territory and driven by a very friendly internal librarian to find the exact sound you need in the heat of the creative moment.

Features like search, favorites, and categorization are standard not only in the factory library but in all available expansions. You will never feel lost or confused searching extensively and wasting time, you will be able to pinpoint the sound you are after within seconds. You won't run out of sounds quickly either as NEXUS2 offers an impressive array of 25 expansions covering a wide gamut of contemporary music styles and produced by the worlds top sound designers. So Whether you need the most powerful dance lead sounds to set the club on fire, or a full gregorian choir for your next masterpiece, NEXUS2 delivers.

All of this may seem like it would be quite demanding on the system resources of your DAW, however, NEXUS2 is very frugal with the CPU and careful with your RAM. You can load multiple instances into your sequencer without worry and because NEXUS2 is coded with love and care for the end user you can rest assured that many instances can be used on modern systems simultaneously without sacrifice.

NEXUS2 is also a very accessible instrument with contrast controls and several skins available which can change the appearance from black, to blue, to C64 beige, you can be sure you will find NEXUS2 not only a joy to hear but also a pleasing aesthetic vision.
