The roll call of machines mined for loops in this throwback pack reads like a who's who of the great and the good. The Roland HS-60, Yamaha CS1x, Moog Sub Phatty and Moog's Little Phatty all get strong show ins, but it's the iconic riffs from Yamaha's mighty DX-7 that remind us why it was one of the hottest digital FM synthesizers of its day. Backing the deep basslines, dreamy pads, and retro lead lines, is a fine selection of over 300 analogue drum machine sounds from other blasts from the past like the LinnDrum, and Old Skool Electro favourite, the Sequential Circuits Drumtraks.
The 1.92GB of content comes from the mind, and able fingers, of Synth Records label boss, Jim Smith, aka Teeel. The obsessive gear head has compiled this set with love, and it makes for an inspiring collection of vintage New Wave sounds that will suit fans of dancy synthwave artists like Chromeo and Kavinsky right down to the ground.
