FabFilter has released a new Synth Classics sound set by Daniel Maurer for FabFilter Twin 2, its powerful software synthesizer.
The Synth Classics sound set includes over 150 presets, featuring leads, pads, plucked sounds and a vintage polysynth selection, programmed by Daniel Maurer. All sounds were thoughtfully created to not simply bring back good memories, but to inspire new music with several fun twists the originals could never have done. Useful parameters are assigned to the Mod Wheel, Sustain Pedal and, of course, the fun X-Y pads in Twin 2 allowing for quick, painless personalization to your music.
Daniel Maurer is a long time synthesizer lover and programmer who started tweaking synthesizers in 1978. Many classic synths followed these humble beginnings and at one point he was touring with six different keyboards across North America to produce all the sounds needed. Today, Daniel's sounds can be heard in many of today's popular software synthesizers. The Synth Classics sound set was inspired by the way FabFilter Twin 2 faithfully reproduces and vastly improves both the sound and flexibility of those analog monsters Daniel used to work with.
The Synth Classics sound set for FabFilter Twin 2 is now available in FabFilter's online shop for €19 / $28 / £17.
