Un piccolo grande sintetizzatore analogico nella tradizione del suono Grp. Largo 8 spazi verticali 5U, montato nel suo cabinet dai rigorosi fianchetti in massello di ciliegio, con connessioni MIDI e Analog CV/Gate. Questa bestiolina ha due potenti oscillatori con le classiche forme d'onda Grp, più Super Saw e Super Triangle; il potente filtro Grp State Variable 12 dB, un Ring Modulator (avete mai provato a modulare ad anello una Super Saw a nove componenti?), un Noise Generator, un
Amplificatore e una coppia di splendidi Vumeter analogici. Poi c'é una coppia di Envelope Generator, quello del filtro ha il loop engine già sperimentato nell'A4 Analog Synthesizer, e una coppia di LFO/Modulation routing. L'arpeggiatore di bordo è semplice da usare, può essere pilotato da Clock Interno, MIDI o External Analog, e offre diversi trucchetti divertenti. Grp A2 Analog Synthesizer è costruito come un carro armato. Ma è molto più pericoloso.
