Cherry Audio picks out a RadioShack classic with its new Surrealistic MG-1 Plus synth plugin and its free for a limited time

Cherry Audio has revived yet another classic synth from yesteryear, following on from the DCO-106 and CA2600, with the Surrealistic MG-1 Plus. A remake of the Realistic Concertmate MG-1 made by Moog in 1981, sold exclusively at RadioShack.

This reinterpretation, as the 'Plus' bit would have you believe, throws in a few extras, but best of all this plugin is free for this year's Black Friday music deals so you'll have to make sure you get in there quick.

Many of the original features are retained, including the "Bell tone" ring modulation, while Cherry Audio's version gains multiple note priority modes including legato and retrigger and over 130 presets.

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
