Retro Wave: Synthwave & 80's Retro is a brand new XL pack that will take you back to the 80's! If synthwave is the style that you are gunning for, then this 1 GB+ pack will surely satisfy your senses. On ‘Retro Wave: Synthwave & 80's Retro’, we focused on an authentic experience of the classic synthwave characteristics. Created with analog instruments such as the Yamaha DX7, Roland Jupiter-8 and Virus TI, and we used genuine 80's creation and processing techniques. This pack is chockfull of vintage analog sounds, loops and one-shots just as they would sound in 1980-1989.

We synthesised and layered over 200 drum hits and loops from scratch, using vintage (Roland TR-707, LinnDrum) and modern gear (Virus TI, Xfer Serum) to bring you a fresh set of synthwave drums and percussion that will lift your productions to new heights. In this folder, you will find big reverbed snares, deep kicks, sparkling hi-hats, tonal percussive hits, various tom rolls, impactful crashes, razor-sharp open hats and more. A lot of the drums in this pack are processed with outboard effect pedals for a super-phat and warm 80's vibe.

We dug deep in our synth collection and have dusted off some of the finest vintage synthesizers we had such as the Yamaha DX7 and the Roland Jupiter-8. This pack is full of classic and new synthesised samples. Get busy with an overflow of moving arpeggios, essential square leads, pitch-changing synths, classic chords, Moog-type basslines, voice-esque harmonies, rising and falling soundscapes, airy pads and even modified live recordings of various instruments.

The FX folder features ravishing sounds to lay down as hits or atmospheres with a vast combination of high-fidelity ambience and foley recordings to cut through your mix. Add these tension-building effects as an extra layer to enhance your creation and capture the hypnotising mood that will improve the overall aesthetic of your music.

Last but not least, we have included 101 carefully crafted, top-notch synthwave presets; leads, arps, basses and bass step sequences, pads, plucks, all to be played as chords or solo. You will be amazed by the detail and feel of authenticity of these presets. These presets are also accompanied by a selection of brand new MIDI files to help kickstart your creativity.

If you want to travel back to the 80’s, then ‘Retro Wave: Synthwave & 80's Retro’ is your ticket.
