Welcome to the first in a brand new series of royalty free loops and one shot samples that pay tribute to the legendry synthesisers and drum machines that have inspired generations of electronic music producers from the early electronic revolution right up to the current day.
First up for the Synth Explorer collection is the classic Roland Jupiter 6. First introduced to the world in 1983 the Jupiter 6 was one of the first analogue synthesisers to adopt MIDI and is considered to be a solid 12 oscillator analogue workhorse with a distinctive but fully capable palette of sounds ranging from Ambient Drones, Smooth Pads, Analog Leads to Techy Blips and Noises.
Synth Explorer – Jupiter 6 has been produced using a mint condition Roland Jupiter 6 owned by one careful, well known producer, recorded live through a TL Audio C-1 dual valve compressor and a Neve 8801 channel strip to capture the pure sonic delight of this vintage synth beauty.
This edition of Vintage Explorer sees a wealth of Loop and one shot samples aimed towards the soulful spectrums of electronic music production with a slight angle towards Italo Disco, Funk, Nu Disco and Deep House as well as more experimental down tempo genres.
The collection features an inspiring range of loops at between 90 and 110BPM and one shot sounds covering a wide sonic palate including Chirpy Arpeggios, Funky Bass and Melodic Loops, Classic Stabs and Chords, Lush Pads, Quirky Percussion and Sweeping SFX
In Detail expect to find 356Mb, 90 Loops, 208 One Shot Samples including 41 Arp Loops, 24 Music Loops, 25 Bass Loops, 16 Bass Multi Samples, 37 SFX Hits, 41 Chord Hits, 34 Synth Stabs, 90 Rex2 Files and 114 Soft Sampler Patches for Kontakt, Halion, Exs24, nnxt and Sfz formats.
