Plughugger has released Future Sound of Retro 80s Pop, a soundset for the u-he Repro synthesizers focusing on the golden age of electronic pop: the 1980s. The soundset is a complete collection of 80s analog style pop: mellow basses, popish leads, lush pads and sequences and arpeggios.
The soundset was created by first replicating classic sounds that defined the genre. Next step was to redesign them without straying too far away from the genre. The final step in the design process was to take a handful of iconic 80s sounds and bring them into the modern world of Synth Wave and EDM.
All sounds in the soundset are properly tagged making finding sounds easy.
As a bonus Plughugger also included a special "YZO" collection of sounds. The YZO sounds are reproductions of some classic synth sounds from an iconic synth pop duo from the 80s. Apart from the reproductions, Plughugger tweaked and further redesigned the sounds - plus recorded all synthesised kick drums as audio files.
