Synth Squad comprises three analogue-modelling synths - Cypher, Amber and Strobe - that can be combined and layered through the powerful Fusor environment. All four come as standalone apps as well as in VST, AU, RTAS and AAX formats. Synth Squad would normally cost $249, but is entirely free for Seaboard GRAND customers.
