Ever had that feeling that the track you're working on just sounds too "nice". Ever had an A&R man, or a director/ producer say "nice track, good composition, it just needs to be more edgy". Herein may lie the solution.
Back in Christian Henson's dance days working with the likes of LTJ Bukem and the Freestylers, a term was coined to describe how to best "f@*k up" a beautiful sonic landscape that had maybe got a bit flowery or "intelligent". An escape route for anything sounding too "Chesney" would often be "just sling a couple of pylons on the track and it will be fine...". Christian has teamed up here with top production duo The Flight (Lana Del Ray, Bjork, Orbital, Rufus Wainwright) to create a definitive collection of phrases, squeaks, bleeps, hits and FX from their enormous selection of classic vintage synths. With each instrument they have discussed and defined what that synth does best. Recorded in "Super Mono" via the most pristine Neve line amps and Cranesong AD converters, the team has created a number of parallel mono signals that can be switched in and out or mixed and assigned to different outputs. These include, dry, saturated, circuit bent and a live - and temperamental, classic spring reverb signal path. With a selection of specially selected, in-the-box mono->stereo effects, modulation and filters to warp the signal further.
In this release release of 3.1 GB (lossless compressed from over 6GB of raw WAV files) from over 3800 samples - synthesisers featured include classic Juno 60, JX3P, MS10, ProOne, SEM, and a Moog.
