Sounds And Effects has announced that Synths of the 1970s for E-MU Systems' Emulator X and Proteus X is now available via download or on DVD. Source material was recorded at 24 bit from the Mini Moog, ARP 2600, Moog Opus 3, ARP Odyssey, and Oberheim SEM.
Developed by Terry Grame, who was a sound developer for many of E-MU Systems' hardware sound modules, the intent here is to be much more like a virtual sound module then just a collection of raw samples—not just to emulate the old synths, but instead to use their sounds as source material to build new and exciting sounds using Emulator/Proteus X's advanced synthesis engine—including the morphing filters, LFOs, integrated effects, mono mode, portamento and more.
Synths of the 1970s has an MSRP of $39.95. It is also available for Kontakt (it was released earlier this year).
