Sounds And Effects has announced that it has released Synths of the 1970s for Native Instruments'Kontakt. Source material for this new sample library 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 more like a virtual sound module then just a collection of raw samples - i.e. not just to emulate the old synths, but instead to use their sounds as source material to build new and exciting sounds using Kontakt's advanced synthesis engine - including the multi-pole filters, the tempo synced LFOs and 32 Step Generators, integrated effects, Beat Machine loops, mono mode, portamento, etc.
Synths of the 1970s has an MSRP of $49.95 and is available now.
