The Vanguarden Soundset is first expansion for the powerhouse Avenger synthesizer by Vengeance Audio, containing 152 high quality presets with about 50MB of embedded content. A lot of love was found exploring this wonderful synthesizer. I feel as if I have missed out having a lot of fun, but, now I'm here. I'm ready to bring out the TTU sound from this beast of a synth. I was rewarded time and again with many beautiful and brilliant sounds. It is sheer sonic power, this synth, capable of pretty much anything and I oddly feel as though I'm just getting starting with this synth. I've yet to utilize its multisample feature, and unique wavetables, but relied on the factory content for most of the bank, yet, still managed to weigh in 50MB of unique sample content, mostly wave forms, unique vocals from a singer that I transformed with synthesis!
The soundset covers mostly some really awesome leads and basses, but is spread out in pads, plucks, and vocals as well. In the future, I'll take avenger to higher levels, but this is a perfect, synthetic, start, so to speak, without relying on samples and external content but what it already contains and is available to all users, the factory wavetables, samples, etc.
It is suited for any contemporary electronic dance and ambient music genres, including cinematic music. It includes a wide variety of presets spread out in many categories, including, basses, leads, pads, keys, and plucks.
An optional MIDI pack is also available for an additional $5, which includes 14 MIDI Files (over 100 merged patterns) used in the audio showcases, which can be used inside Dune 3 or in other synths. These are extremely useful and sound great on their own! They can add the icing to an already beautiful sounding patch to make them truly inspiring.
The Vanguarden Expansion for Avenger, by Vengeance Audio, is for electronic music of any kind, including ambient genres. Every patch is assigned to the modulation wheel and nearly all have detailed velocity assignments. Most of the leads have some very complex and sophisticated path structuring going on with many different types of filters and resonance settings. All patches have been volume normalized, ensuring no clipping and equal volume distrubution across the layers (including the modulation wheel settings). There are some breathtaking pads and floating keys within the soundset as well, often using more than 4 layers.
