Synthwave Diva is out!

The Unfinished and Luftrum have teamed to provide the Sound of Summer with a brand new collaboration, Synthwave Diva.

Like the perfect, golden child, born from a union between Jan Hammer and John Carpenter, Synthwave is one of the hottest electronic genres of the moment. Artists such as Mitch Murder, Kavinsky and Powerglove have raised its profile, with guys like TimeCop1983 and FM-84 (who have both provided demo tracks for Diva Synthwave) continue to keep it fresh and alluring. Synthwave’s influence can even be heard in the cinematic work of M83, Cliff Martinez and Trent Reznor.

Synthwave Diva provides 128 patches for U-He’s Diva, glistening with 80s nostalgia and dripping with analogue warmth. Chunky bass, smooth pads, flickering keys and lush leads, with that unmistakable synth cool. Matt and Soren have taken their love for the genre and given it their very own contemporary twist, providing all the sun-kissed retro joy necessary, but with an added touch of their own inimitable imaginations.

If your head is full of thoughts of Amigas, betamaxes and white men doing kung fu; the music of Vangelis and Tangerine Dream; films such as Breakfast Club and Beverly Hills Cop; and if you’re writing synth pop, outrun music, or just want a hint of that retro, analogue magic in your music, then Synthwave Diva is for you.

So, take a sip of your tequila sunrise, roll up your pink jacket sleeves, push the latest tunes into your eight track and drive that Testarossa deep into the heat of the night…

Go to the Synthwave Diva page for audio demo’s and a walkthrough video of the presets.

Customer survey and the Prophet-6

The most awesome-sounding holy grail of hardware synths (well, to me at least) arrived the other day the DSI Sequential Prophet-6 and while diving into the synth exploring new sonic realms I have begun preparation on a soundset for the Prophet-6. At the moment I am working on a few other projects, among them a specially themed collaboration soundset for U-He Diva scheduled to release ultimo July, a release I am very excited about. I have been crafting on a new soundset for Omnisphere 2 for a while, which also was the most requested soundset in my recent customer survey.

Speaking about surveys, I recently sent out a newsletter containing a customer synth survey including a 30% summer discount code. The survey is mostly targeted existing customers but if you happen to be one (or intend to be) then help me shape my future portfolio and grab the discount too: http://bit.ly/1TVj5lA

Luftrum 13 release ultimo February

Since November I have been working on Luftrum 13 a new soundbank for Zebra containing 128 fresh and original presets from cinematic pads over dynamic arpeggios, bass sequences, modern synth leads and atmospheric soundscapes – a perfect fit for all genres but in particular aimed at game and film soundtracks and any electronic music in need of unique and original sounds. Luftrum 13 is carefully designed with attention to playability, peak levels, XY pads, velocity and aftertouch.

14 of the 128 patches were created for Christian Wibe for his scoring of the sci-fi thriller What Happened to Monday. These patches will be added to the soundset as a free update after the movie is released (Q4 2016).

Luftrum 13 is expected to be released ultimo February.
