FXpansion has released Electric Himalaya: Antiquity, an extensive pack of vintage analogue/keyboard style presets for Cypher and Fusor, two of the instruments in DCAM: Synth Squad.
The scope of Antiquity’s chunky, vintage sounds is breathtaking, and its musical character will keep you playing for hours.
Highlights include fat, lush OB-style brass sounds and classic analogue leads and basses of all kinds, full of weight, vibe and inspiration. Deep, evolving pads, shimmering bells, funky arps, powerful keyboard and polysynth sounds and too much more to list. As well as evoking the heavy physics and playability of old-school analogue subtractive and FM sounds, Antiquity brings new dimensions to these classic tones with Synth Squad’s modern luxuries like precise tuning, tempo-synced LFOs and envelopes, and advanced modulation.
A special highlight is the startlingly realistic selection of electric piano and keyboard sounds, which utilize precise osc manipulation with Cypher’s advanced FM and WM modelling. These, like all presets in the Antiquity collection, are each instruments in their own right – raw and full of rich musical presence, ready to sculpt into infinite shapes with FX, amp modellers and outboard.
Antiquity comes supplied with 265 raw Cypher presets and Fusor versions containing FX treatments and additional modulation.
Electric Himalaya: Antiquity is available to purchase for all registered DCAM: Synth Squad, priced at £25 GBP / €29 EUR / $39 USD.
