Also new to Absolute are the vintage keys of Amped Elektra, Electric Bass and the expansions Polarities for Padshop 2, Sounds of Soul for Retrologue 2 and Future Past Perfect for Groove Agent 5.

Also included in Absolute 5 are the instruments from the previous iteration. With HALion 6, Absolute includes a powerful sampling and sound creation instrument. At its side stand HALion Sonic 3, Groove Agent 5, The Grand 3, the Padshop 2 granular and spectral synthesizer as well as the classic virtual analog synthesizer, Retrologue 2. And the list goes on: Prime Cuts and Rock Essentials Style expansion sets for Groove Agent, Granular Guitars for Padshop, Dark Planet, Hypnotic Dance and Triebwerk add to the considerable arsenal of sounds.
