Drop a coin in the slot, breathe in the smell of warm circuitry and let Looptone’s royalty-free synthwave sample library load up.
Synthwave 1980 Retro-logue is a hardwired, widescreen analogue thrill ride into the Tron matrix. Pulsing arpeggios, emotionally charged lead lines, electrified beats and warm, soaring synth strings take you on a journey into the ’80s-inspired future.
Enhancing the super sharp stylistic feel of electronic music’s most classic era with the driving production twist of modern synthwave, this comprehensive collection will instantly give your tracks a distinctive tone and atmosphere.Sonic reference points include the legendary film scores of the ’80s (Terminator, Escape from New York, etc) and modern interpretations of the style (Drive, Stranger Things), as well as the work of synthwave producers such as Futurecop! and Miami Nights 1984. Throwing all these influences into the pot – and adding a sprinkle of the seminal game music of the era – Looptone have cooked up a sample library that pulses in colours more vibrant than Sonny Crockett’s wardrobe.
This is not only an unmissable resource for producers of synthwave but also those operating in all styles of electronica, synth pop, chillout and cinematic, and anyone looking for cool retro sounds to work into any media or music project.
