VSP has released Zebras Dream in Color Vol.2, which picks up where Vol.1 left off, with 150 new presets and 40+ new APEGS. These cover a wide range of musical styles from vintage electronic to modern, always remaining musical.
The heart of Vol.2 contains 80 Pads and Atmospheres. The Atmospheres go deep, the listing includes sounds-capes, symphonic resonance, drones, one note wonders, ambient, environment, and more. The pads range from classic vintage hardware to rich sonics, capable of filling in the needed frequencies of a tune.
Vol.2 also includes more bass presets and focuses on the deep and analog as well as FM and single oscillator Moog style bass. Leads are included and also represent a vintage slant. There are keys such as electric pianos and organs of which there are several variation's and multiple tone choices.
Zebra offers several controllers for modifying a preset quickly and intuitively. With this in mind, much effort went into making the presets very playable and musical. On most of the presets, the mod wheel offers quick changes to the presets. For example, in some cases a preset may be morphed into a dramatically different sound while on other presets, the mod wheel may be used to add or change the effects. On top of this, the "x"-"Y" controls can be used to change important parameters live and intuitively.
