Refraction is an inspiring Analog based Synth Sound Design library, containing everything from Deep Synth Bass to lush evolving Ambient Pads and short Analog Synths to complex Pulses & Rhythm's. It contains over 250 designed snapshots utilising the Analog samples and has a highly flexible interface with a multitude of tools for shaping your own sounds, rhythms, pulses and arpeggiations.

You can layer up to 3 different sounds which can be selected from Long, Short & Sustained categories, and can also be chosen randomly, either per layer or all 3 layers together. This can be a great way to get started, putting together combinations you wouldn't have thought to.

Refraction includes just over 3.5GB of samples taken mainly from a Korg EX800 analogue synth from 1984 (Desktop version of the Poly 800), with a few samples from a Casio HT-3000 from 1987 (whilst not Analog VCO's it has an analog filter which was used in all sounds). All of the samples were recorded through a tube/valve preamp to add more warmth to the sound, and every note over 4 octaves was recorded to ensure the character of the sound was captured. Some samples were also recorded through a hardware analog filter as well as the preamp.
