Z3TA+ is an award-winning analog-style synthesizer with incredible sound shaping capabilities. The exclusive bandlimited Waveshaping technology makes Z3TA+ one the best and most respected synths in the industry. As a complete instrument, Z3TA+ is oriented to the professional musician and sound programmer looking for uncompromised sound quality and features. Z3TA+ ships with DXi, VST, and stand-alone versions.

Z3TA+ (zay’-ta) is among the most expressive and inspiring virtual instruments available today, fully capable of producing the most authentic vintage analog sounds and incredible, cutting edge modern sounds. Whether you’re looking for lush, warm pads, slowly evolving atmospheres, searing leads or sparkling FM sounds, Z3TA+ delivers the goods, and includes hundreds of professional presets.

Read what the press has to say:

"A lot of virtual sound generators are competing for your disposable income, and the process of choosing one is further complicated because there are so many worthy contenders. Yet within this crowded field, the Z3TA+ still stands out. The sound quality is clean and defined, the interface is, well, clean and defined, and the programming flexibility is enough to keep diehard synthesizer fans off the streets and out of trouble.”

"You will be hard pressed to find satisfying results that you won't be able to achieve with Z3TA+, whether huge, warm-sounding pads that subtly change over time, bright, shimmering FM sounds, wavetable-style patches with plenty of internal motion within them, deep, thick basses, fat, punchy leads or not-of-this-universe effects for your sound design needs."

"I ordered drums for my 13-year-old grandaughter for Christmas. They were ordered on December 21st. I thought there was no way she'd get them in time for Christmas and probably not before New Year's Day. To my surprise, she called us on December 23rd and said she'd already received them. Now that is amazing service. The drums are beautiful and she's estatic! We will surely be ordering more musical equipment in this coming year. Another thing. I'd gone to the local music store which carries lots of equipment and they were out of the drums I wanted to purchase. I got online and found activemusician.com and was able to find the drums I wanted and in a color I wanted. Hats off to your good service and good products."
