Loopmasters has launched Synth Explorer – Jupiter-6, the first title in a new series of royalty free loops and one shot samples that pay tribute to legendary synthesizers and drum machines.
First up for the Synth Explorer collection is the classic Roland Jupiter 6. First introduced to the world in 1983 the Jupiter 6 was one of the first analogue synthesisers to adopt MIDI and is considered to be a solid 12 oscillator analogue workhorse with a distinctive but fully capable palette of sounds ranging from Ambient Drones, Smooth Pads, Analog Leads to Techy Blips and Noises.
Synth Explorer – Jupiter 6 has been produced using a mint condition Roland Jupiter 6 owned by one careful, well known producer, recorded live through a TL Audio C-1 dual valve compressor and a Neve 8801 channel strip to capture the pure sonic delight of this vintage synth beauty.
This edition of Vintage Explorer sees a wealth of Loop and one shot samples aimed towards the soulful spectrums of electronic music production with a slight angle towards Italo Disco, Funk, Nu Disco and Deep House as well as more experimental down tempo genres.
Synth Explorer Jupiter-6 features
- 356 MB content, 24-bit quality.
- Includes 41 arp loops, 24 music loops, 25 bass loops, 16 bass multi samples, 37 sfx hits, 41 chord hits, 34 synth stabs.
- 90 REX2 files.
- 114 soft sampler patches for Kontakt, HALion, EXS24, NN-XT and sfz formats.
The sample pack is available for purchase for £14.95 GBP.
