Synth Magic has announced P8000, a new Poly800 and DW8000 Library for Kontakt 5.2.1 and higher (not the free Kontakt player). The price is $25 during the pre-order period, rising to $41 after pre-order ends. Links will be sent 09/04/2017.
The Korg Poly 800 and DW8000 are quirky and interesting 80's poly synths that can produce very interesting sounds.
P8000 is a custom instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt 5 featuring a library of sounds and samples from Synth Magic's Poly800 and DW8000 synthesisers.
Synth Magic recorded a large collection of custom samples from both machines (2.8GB of samples compressed to 1.5GB using NI's lossless compression) and placed them all under the control of the custom user interface, so you can easily sculpt your own Poly800/DW8000 inspired sounds. There are lots of presets provided to get you started and see what P8000 is capable of.
P8000 has an easy to navigate custom user interface for quick and easy access to all waveforms. It comes with a large collection of presets and plenty of synth sounds, Bass, Experimental radiophonic workshop sounds, all the Poly 800 DCO waveforms, abstract tones, arpeggios and Multis, which are all easily tweaked via the user interface.
P8000 will fit into most musical genres from Ambient, electronics, Boards of Canada type tracks, Dance music, abstract electronica, experimental music, Chillout, Space Disco/NU-Disco, Kraut Rock, Soundscapes, etc.
