Developed in collaboration with iconic and multiple-award-winning film composer Hans Zimmer, The Legend HZ builds on the legacy of its predecessor, The Legend.

The result of this collaborative effort is an analog modeled software synth which is uniquely positioned for use in modern film scoring and music production applications. Most importantly, it retains this position while faithfully recreating the sonic characteristics of the original hardware.

By partnering with Synapse Audio, Hans Zimmer has drawn on his extensive experience to create a versatile soft synth that was built with the needs of modern media scoring, music production, and sound design in mind.

The Legend HZ features 200 factory presets developed jointly by expert sound designer Kevin Schroeder and Hans Zimmer. The factory soundbank gives anyone access to a wide range of cinematic-style sounds, while The Legend HZ itself provides access to some of the very tools used by them.

In addition to the features of its predecessor, The Legend HZ also includes:

  • 6 high-quality VA oscillators.
  • 4 MSEGs (Multiple Segment Envelope Generators).
  • Polyphony up to 12 voices, and a new Unison II mode with increased stereo spread.
  • A Fixed Filter Bank modeled after Hans Zimmer's personal 914 Fixed Filter Bank.
  • A designated Arpeggiator/Sequencer capable of creating up to 32 step/bar sequences.
  • Modulation matrix with Drag+Drop support.
  • Additional effects on the back panel and more effect parameters.
  • Full MPE support.

Existing users of The Legend can upgrade to The Legend HZ for a reduced price by logging into their User Service Area account on the Synapse Audio website.

The Legend HZ is patch-compatible with The Legend.
