Designed to complement its Monoment Bass plugin, Softube’s new Statement Lead synth puts the focus on creating EDM, D&B and house lead sounds, and all with the minimum of production fuss.

Although it’s designed to be beginner-friendly, Softube assures us that Statement’s sounds are based on carefully recorded and processed sounds from “rare and expensive” hardware synths, putting them at a high standard, and there are drive, reverb, delay, multiband compression and spatialisation effects, too.

Of course, an instrument like this needs a decent selection of presets, and we’re assured that there are no fillers among the 150-plus that you’ll find here. Use them as they come or as starting points for further tweaking.

Find out more on the Softube (opens in new tab) website. Statement Lead has a regular price of $99, but you can purchase it for $89 until 1 October.
