The concept of Essential Synths was triggered by a desire to push the accepted thresholds and to extend the frontiers of modern synthesis. The classic analog machines of history were meant for so much more, and this is our time. This collection is a true catharsis experience, letting you command emerging soundscapes, create heavy moods, and author relevant storylines.
UNIQUE AND UNPREDICTABLE
The airwaves are full of the classic sounds of vintage synthesizers, and the market is full of digital simulations and samples of those nostalgic tones. Essential Synths offers instead a more cultivated and mature assemblage: a collection of chromatically sampled synthesizers refined with unique effects and boutique outboard processing. The result is a surprising discovery of something you never imagined might bloom by touching that key.
CREATIVE AND ORIGINAL
While you’ll find Essential Synths conveniently playable within the comfort of your keybed, that is where the familiarity ends and the creativity begins. Each note brings from the classic sound source a completely fresh variant ready to serve your production masterpiece. Employing a wide range of tonal, timbral, and time-based sculpting, we allowed the old leads, pads, and basses to evolve into a richer form. In your discerning hands, they may become a delicate wash, a looming thunder, or any other unpredictable articulation of mood.
Not a digital simulation or approximation, Essential Synths is a collection of faithfully sampled Eurorack modular, vintage analog mono, and modern analog poly synthesizers. Outboard processing was done by hand in real-time using a variety of studio-level equipment including analog tape machines, 4 track recorders, and dozens of analog modulation and ambient effects. No algorithms or software manipulations were used in the entire process, so what you have is an absolutely irreproducible palette of emerging sounds.
