Steinberg re-released as freeware two classic virtual instrument plugins- Model E and VB-1, both discontinued years ago.

Throughout the long history of Steinberg, many products have come and gone, many have been superseded by new variants and others have been dropped completely. Once in a while, however, some of our developers like to dig up one of these long forgotten gems and polish it ready for current operating systems.

As these revived products remain discontinued, their updates are not officially supported. Updates for discontinued products are sporadic as these are voluntarily provided by our engineers in their free time.

Model E is a classic analog synth with ultra-low CPU load and 77 factory presets and VB-1 is a virtual bass emulation with selectable pick position.
