Unpolluted, undiluted and undisputed, ASL (ANALOGUE SEQUENCER LOOPS) is 100% pure analogue, using only classic analogue synths and hardware analogue sequencers - and superbly captured at 24-bit sampling resolution. ASL is based around a uniquely inspiring new sample library from IAN BODDY, one of Europe's leading synthesists, featuring 1,000 loops and over 1.5 GB of brand new material sourced entirely from analogue modular systems & vintage analogue synths and performed solely on hardware analogue sequencers. Provided in WAV, Kontakt and REX multiformat, this superb loop library is designed to complement Ian's highly acclaimed 'Morphology' sample library.
"Very inspiring and a great way to kick start the creative juices. I'd suggest that if you're into electronic music you should check this out: it would be great for the more esoteric side of ambient music or film music. While a collection like this is never going to be quite the same as having some analogue synths in your studio, as a shortcut to inspiration they can't be faulted. And they stay in tune, which is more than can be said for most vintage synths!"

"There is some excellent stuff amongst this lot.. consistently high audio quality.. genuine analogue character.. full of movement and warmth.. I could imagine these loops working in a number of contexts ranging from synth-led Depeche Mode or Soft Cell through club styles (ambient trance anyone?) to a Mike Oldfield/Tubular Bells sound.. For fans of a genuine analogue sound, ASL ought to have considerable appeal and, given the price, the library offers respectable value for money"
