Dear KVR friends.

I am proud to announce the release of Luftkraft a soundset containing 82 Kraftwerk inspired synth patches for U-He Diva. This is without doubt the most meticulous and time consuming release I have worked on for Diva.

By analyzing Kraftwerk tracks, I have replicated some of their iconic and notable sounds and made a handful of new ones which Kraftwerk never knew existed! The result is a carefully created selection of patches, from famed synth leads to resonant zap drums, classic basses and sound effects to pads and electronic transients. While being replicated as accurately as possible, these are freely inspired synth emulations, recreated by ear. The patches may not at all have the same synth settings as their original counterpart.

Luftkraft is fully NKS compatible. It includes tagged NKS presets, NKS audio previews and comes sorted in a Luftkraft subbank.

All the sounds you hear in the main demo below are 100% Diva including all the drums and no external samples or effects of any kind are used.

Disclaimer: This is a soundset inspired by Kraftwerk. It is not created nor endorsed by Kraftwerk, it is not an official Kraftwerk product and Kraftwerk has not been involved in the creation of Luftkraft.

It's a fantastic effort Luftrum - and great sounding Kraftwerk-esque patches for this lovely sounding synth (and I bought Luftkraft about one hour ago).

As tired as I am of "tribute to..."-anything, this set is too well done to miss.

A lot of Kraftwerk (and Kraftwerk-style) sounds are deceptively simple on the surface, but actually rather hard to do tastefully, and most sounds here are winners in this regard.

As an OCD completist, I´d wish for a small update with a few sweet solo sounds (Neon Lights, Metropolis, Space Lab, Airwaves?) :hihi:

Amazing work, Soren. Labour of love!

I had a listen to your YT demo now and it took me back to the past when I used to listen to Kraftwerk all the time.
they had such a refreshing sound where the mix was allowed to breathe with space. Now, so many modern tracks are saturated and filled to the brink with as many sounds as people have synthesiser plugins, whereas those Kraftwerk sounds are allowed to shine in each track, as shown in your demo. So good. Congrats!

Thanks buddy! Yeah, the YouTube vid unfortunately received a Copyright Strike from Sony Germany some days ago, that's a first one for me - so apparently I must have done something right in the recreation of the Kraftwerk signature sound. :wink:

Makes me wonder if the same would have happened, if I had chosen to monetize the vid? Hmmm...
