Cakewalk releases BigTone EDM Expansion Pack for Z3TA+ 2

Cakewalk

Cakewalk has announced the release of new BigTone Expansion Pack for Z3TA+2, which provides a powerful set of building blocks to add a modern touch to electronic productions.

127 handcrafted presets by sound designer Nico Herz showcase the flexibility of Z3TA+ 2's synth engine: "Mystical pads, complex arpeggiations, ferocious bass, searing leads, and much more can enhance all types of EDM productions, while essentially turning Z3TA+ 2 into a whole new instrument".

Nico states, "I've tried to let Z3TA+ 2 sound not like you'd expect it to, by creating sounds with such variety, you wouldn't think Z3TA+ 2 is the source of this pack. So although the set is kind of a basic cross-section of some electronic-based music styles, from techno to ambient, to 80s, etc., I wanted the sounds to bring a fresh, unique flavor to EDM."

Presets are optimized for the EDM "sweet spot" tempo of 125BPM, but also work in other contexts. The titles contain information on how best to bring the sounds to life.

Nico is clear about his goal: "These presets are designed to trigger creativity, so there are no 'rules' on how to incorporate them into a production. And, they're versatile enough that different people will use them in different ways—including ways I could never imagine."

According to Cakewalk Product Manager Lance Riley, "We were delighted to work again with Nico on the BigTone EDM pack. His wealth of sound design knowledge, gained through years of experience with major artists and multiple projects, becomes obvious when you hear the presets he's created."

Availability
The BigTone EDM pack ($49.99) is available for immediate download from the Cakewalk Store as well as the Valve's Steam Store.
