Maia

Overview

Meet Maia, a synthesizer full of soul. It can be an emotional instrument or a furious beast, depending on your mood.

Elegant sounds from organic and timeless sources, Maia’s Dual Synth Engine generates iconic synthesizer textures and ethereal melodics through a versatile dual synth, a dual step sequencer and a multi-effect unit.
