The A2 is a full-fledged Grp Synthesizer analog synthesizer optimized for use as a killer monosynth; capable of self-generating patches as well as external MIDI and CV control, this powerful little synth is ready to fit into any workflow. With MIDI arpeggiation and a host of extended-function modulation sources, the A2 extends the concept of the classic monosynth and allows for greater refinement of articulation, timbre, and more: looping AHDSR envelope, VCLFOs, Sample & Hold, and extensive modulation options are a sound designer's delight. Coupled with its rock-solid construction, this synthesizer is a force to be reckoned with in the studio, on the stage, and beyond.

The GRP A2 has two thick analog VCOs and a state variable VCF. The A2 has tons of routing and modulation options all available on rotary switches and a ring modulator as well as a VCLFO and regular LFO as well as two envelopes that are each unique.
There are CV as well as midi control inputs and an arpeggiator built in. The glowing VU meters let you monitor the output which although it is a monophonic synth, different filter outputs can be output at once.
In the first part of the video we used the Elektron Model:Samples for drums and sequencing of the A2.
