Plughugger has announced the release of its Stylewalker soundset featuring a collection of modern dance sounds for the DIVA software synthesizer by u-he.
Stylewalker is a complete toolbox for modern dance music with focus on bass sounds, plucks and pad sounds and absolutely no love for traditional vintage sounds such as lucky leads, analog pianos or typical Moog basses. This collection is just about modern sounds. 255 of them to be precise.
To make selection and navigation among the sounds as simple as possible, the sounds have been sorted into 17 characteristic categories. If you’re looking for a big sounding pad sound, you go to the “Big Pad” category. If you want a complex modulated bass sound – you go to “Modulated Bass”. The categories are meant to describe the general direction. For example, the 303 Bass category contains the kind of 303-type of sounds you might hear from a Juno 106 or a Minimoog, rather than an exact emulation. Although that the Diva is a versatile synthesizer – it cannot do a real 303. Yet.
