Martinic AX73

GBP £85.00 (UK/EU orders incur VAT)

In 1986, the original AX73, with its proudly all-analogue signal path ended up flying under the radar. Martinic has taken what was great about the original AX73 and elevated it into a powerful, flexible software instrument that fits right into the modern producer’s lineup of go-to synths.

SKU: 1333-1005 Categories: ,



The AX73 Virtual Instrument from Martinic is a precisely modelled analogue synthesizer from the 80s, with many modern enhancements that remove the limitations of hardware from that era. This incredibly powerful plugin is not a sample library; it’s a fully functioning synthesizer capable of creating complex sounds limited only by your imagination. And, it includes over 600 presets to get you started.
