Cluster Sound has released Programmer 24, a synth & drum Ableton Live Pack based on the rare Solton Programmer 24, the cult auto accompaniment machine that shaped the sound of Italo Disco.
Released in 1985 by the Italian company Ketron Laboratories, the Solton Programmer 24 was an advanced auto accompaniment machine specifically conceived for Italo Disco producers. Used in countless Italian electronic productions, the Programmer 24 is designed around the electronic sound of the '80s.
The 8-bit drum samples are designed to sound gritty and lo-fi, the basses are funky and punchy, the string and organ section sound lush and warm and the hollow, round synths look electro and synthpop.
The patches included in Programmer 24 are designed to capture all the nuances of this cult machine but offer also modern features to sculpt the sounds. You can adjust the stereo BBD chorus, recall several multisampled "brilliance" synth settings or enhance the sounds using dedicated exciters and filters.
