Native Instruments’ Analog Inspired Super 8 Poly Synth Is Now A VST3 Plugin

SYNTH ANATOMY uses affiliation & partner programs (big red buttons) to finance a part of the activity. If you use these, you support the website. Thanks! 

Native Instruments Super 8, vintage-inspired analog Synthesizer, originally published for Reaktor, is now also available as a plugin with VST3 support as a free update.

I often write about the rich variety of Reaktor instruments that are available directly with Komplete or as a free download in the daily growing user library. One of these beauties has now been freed from her Reaktor pupa. Super 8 is a lovely sounding analog modeling Synthesizer that is now available as a VST3 plugin.

Thanks to this update, you can now load it in your DAW without opening Reaktor first. It also includes a facelift that brings better, sharper graphics made high-resolution screens. Plus, it comes with 200 new presets that give fresh creative impulses to compose. Unfortunately, there is no option to scale the plugin interface. Hopefully, we see that in a future update.

Native Instruments Super 8 VST3


Super 8 is described as a modern take on vintage polysynth sounds in a fun eight-voice instrument. It features two oscillators that produce classic warm, rich tones best-known from vintage analog synths. These are spiced up with a characterful filter, and a multi-fx processor including chorus, flanger, delay, and reverb. Sounds can be modulated with two LFOs (mod1/mod2) and two envelopes (filter & amp). All this is built into a very easy-to-use user interface.

A nice free update which makes the plugin easier to integrate into DAW. But another point must also be highlighted. Native Instruments released Super 8 as a VST3 plugin, a format that we have been waiting a long time for. Thanks and hopefully more plugins in the future.

Native Instruments Super 8 plugin is a free update for existing users and can be downloaded from Native Access.
