This offering from Black Octopus Sound features 1.3 GB of loops, one-shots, song starter kits, various stems and multi-sampled synths. I’ve reviewed synthwave packs from Black Octopus before, but Lovers Lane Synthwave gives you a lighter and more elegant side of synthwave genre. A total of 240 24-bit WAV sounds can be sampled and further manipulated at your heart’s content. It includes plenty of drums, instruments, arpeggios and basses. The sounds are driven to inspire the user, especially the loops that have been recorded in 97 BPM with key information for flexibility and ease of use. The starter and full-mix loops are great song aid to get you going. A good set of five multi-sampled synths can be loaded in your soft sampler of choice so you can make your own patches. Although this is a very genre-specific library, Lovers Lane Synthwave is still useful for pop and electronica. If you like the nostalgic sounds of the 80s, look no further. Two thumbs up.
