The Joy of Hardware

The greatest pleasures are simple pleasures. A hardware synth like Dino Park is instant-on and instantly gratifying. Totally dependable and extremely easy to use, it turns any USB MIDI Keyboard into a sound monster. Combined with the power and flexibility of software, Dino Park offers the best of both worlds!

The Secret behind the Sound

While most versatile synthesizers use sample-playback as the basis of their synthesis, Dino Park emulates the very DNA of the original analog circuitry.  Because it features a super high performance dedicated DSP processor to do that math, Dino Park can emulate a variety of synthesizers and synthesis forms in the most minute detail.   And because Dino Park’s DSP processing knows no latency, Dino Park plays and feels just like the real thing with a level of responsiveness and musicality of a hardware synth.  No software-only plugin plays and feels like Dino Park!
