Moog Music‘s Mariana Bass Synthesizer is a new software the company calls its “next evolution of Bass.”

The company explains in detail the features of Mariana on their website:

“Mariana is a dual-layer synthesizer, allowing you to mix together two completely different synthesizer sounds that can dynamically complement each other or be played duophonically. Each layer is built around two oscillators … with a sub-oscillator adding even more low end weight.

Two resonant Moog filters and a third filter specifically for the sub-oscillator let you shape your sound… Mariana is optimized for quickly fine-tuning stereo content while simultaneously preserving a powerful mono bass foundation.

Warm tube, tape, and overdrive saturation and a tight compressor add heaviness and glue to your bass lines while an illuminating real-time metering section lets you monitor your sounds and dial them in to a professional standard… Whether designing your own bass tones from scratch or using one of the 200 included presets as a starting point, Mariana is an accessible and versatile tool for any modern production environment. [Although] Mariana is optimized for bass, it is fully capable of producing strong leads, punchy percussion, and multidimensional effects…

Nearly every parameter of Mariana can be modulated internally via MIDI, MPE, and virtual CV to build an interconnected ecosystem right in your DAW.”

The Mariana Bass Synthesizer starts at an introductory price of $49 (Originally $99) for Mac 11.7 Intel and Apple Silicon and Windows 10 64-bit versions. The iOS version is $19 (Originally $29.99) for iOS versions. Mariana comes in VST3, AudioUnit, and Pro Tools AAX formats and standalone AUv3 for Mac.
