Inspired by both the current scene of synth-drenched pop and the 80s sounds that first brought the style to prominence, Synthwave is a neon-bright collection of classic to modern synth pop essentials. To create this Pack, the sound designers at ModeAudio sampled their extensive collection of analog and digital drum machines (including the hard-knocking, under-appreciated Roland TR-505) and synths, and combined them with their own specially-configured Live effects chains. In addition to the sample content, Synthwave also makes extensive use of Wavetable, demonstrating how much is achievable from this versatile synth. The result is a detailed toolkit of presets, kits, loops and clips that updates 80s synth aesthetics to the sonic standards of the 21st century.
Synthwave includes big, brash drums, dynamic basses, tidal pads, expansive leads and a set of 80s-influenced sci-fi effects. The Pack includes demo projects to showcase the breadth of sound on offer. Use these projects for inspiration or pull your favorite elements out and drop them into your own productions.
