Retro Synths contains more than 4000 samples of legendary synthesizers from the past three decades, intricately multi-sampled and completely integrated into Ableton Live. The selection includes Minimoog basses, acid lines from the Roland TB-303, phase distortion sounds from the Casio CZ-series and many more. Every preset is immediately playable and can be extensively customized using the flexible Macro controls.

The latest free update gives Retro Synths two new soundsets: “Modular Patterns” contains basses, resonant leads, as well as further sounds and phrases from a classic analogue modular system; “Opus” explores the lush string, brass and organ sounds of the Moog Opus 3.
