This Kontakt instrument uses sounds sampled into a Casio FZ-1 sampler, various 80’s samplers and 80’s synths and drum machines. Over 1.5GB of samples compressed to just over a GB using NI’s compression and over 300 presets ready for your musical productions or tweek away using the graphical user interface. I have been a user of the FZ-1 for many years and love the way it adds ‘that something’ to anything sampled into it. The output from the samplers was connected to a series of vintage valve pre-amps before sampling for use in Kontakt. If you like sounds and drums suitable for Depeche Mode/New Wave tracks, John Foxx, old rave, 80’s disco, modern dance, abstract experimental electronica, chillout, Film score (check Replicant demo below for Blade Runner type sounds) then this collection of sounds is for you.
Zed80 comes with hundreds of great drum sounds which have a great vibe to them and they have all been mapped into ready to use kits. They are perfect for all types of electronic music production(check demo’s to hear just a small selection of the drums available in this instrument).
There are lots of juicy bass sounds both analogue and digital aswell as lots of great pads and strings, organs, werli piano’s, stabs, hits, percussion, weird efx, vocal synths……..lots and lots of sounds.
All sounds are loaded into memory at the same time and then selected from a simple drop down list which makes sample banks selection quick, easy and fun.
Instrument comes with over 300 preset nki files which can be easily tweeked using the custom GUI interface or simply load a set of samples from the menu and build your own sounds using the graphical user interface.
