Soundiron has announced the release of a new vintage synthesizer library for Kontakt. Cruiser captures that signature nostalgic sound of a vintage 80's synth, Which works for vaporwave, chillwave, nu-disco, new retro wave and other styles from the 80s.
This vintage 49-key subtractive synthesizer was built by the Italian electronics company Siel way back in 1981. Sold to the European markets as the Siel Cruise, this little slice of the '80s made it stateside as a rebranded Sequential Fugue. The Siel Cruise actually contains two different synthesizers: a monophonic and a polyphonic synth, each with their own presets and options. Soundiron captured the neon-infused retro-futuristic feel by recording 16 different preset banks with infinite sustains and tight staccatos. Soundiron also created 20 sound designed custom synth and FX presets that accentuate the versatility of this library, from leads to pads and rhythmic presets. With the Soundiron Cruiser, you can double guitar leads to beef them up or put this synth at the forefront of the next big synthwave track.
Soundiron packed the GUI with lots of sound-shaping controls that give you the flexibility to warp the sound in many ways. You have control over Volume, Attack, Release, Transient Offset, Vibrato and Octave layering. The "Glide" control slider allows you to play legato and portamento leads. You'll also find an adaptable LFO system, with selectable LFO shape, modulation target parameter, speed, intensity, tempo-syncing and fade-in time. You can also apply your choice of 13 low-pass, high-pass and FX filters, with assignable modulation control options, including velocity, mod wheel, expression, after-touch, key position and step-sequencer table control. You can also use our customizable arpeggiator, with a built-in velocity sequencer table and control over arp direction, note timing, swing, randomization and duration.
Intro Price: $19 (MSRP: $29). Introductory sale ends November 27th.
