Benedict Roff-Marsh releases SynthStudio Pack IV – Wide Boys & Heroes
Benedict Roff-Marsh has released SynthStudio Pack IV – Wide Boys & Heroes, a collection of instrument and effects for Windows.
The theme for this pack was to build instruments and effects that are really organic in character. I developed under the Dirty Analog tag as I wanted each and every oscillator to be wonderfully grimy and unpredictable.
Wide Boys refers to the lively and wide sound these instruments and effects deliver. Heroes because I always have my eyes on standout instruments of the past from manufacturers like Oberheim, Waldorf, Hammond, Farfisa and EMU.
Of course the tagline is also a (slightly warped) reference to the lead song from Gary Numan’s “I Assassin” album
