Navi Retlav Studio has released two soundsets: Blue-II Movement featuring 128 presets by Navi Retlav for Rob Papen’s new BLUE II cross-fusion synthesizer, and SBB Exploration, a soundset featuring 128 presets by Louis Green for the SubBoomBass bass synthesizer instrument.
Rob Papen’s Blue-II is one of the most advanced virtual synthesizers on the market. We’ve tried it, and it was love at first sight. So, we’ve put ourselves into the task of making a patch bank for it. And the result surpassed our expectations. This sound bank shows the true capabilities of intense X/Y patch modulation mixed with outworldly textures, fluid pads and raging basses. This soundset is your key for sounds that sit well in a wide range of electronic music generes, especially if you are searching for fresh signature sounds.
Do you think that Rob Papen’s SubBoomBass VST Synth is only good for Bass and Kick sounds? Well, here its a good example proving otherwise, SBB is very capable of making leads, pads, and polysynths. Of course, we didn’t forgot to include great bass sounds for many different generes. Ranging from Prog Rock to Progressive House, in this package you’ll find enough to please even to the most discerning ears. Crafted with care, by synthesiser programmer Louis Green, a Drummer/Synthesist since 1983, has taken a selection of his favorite patches to formulate a combination of useful and very tweakable sounds for your enjoyment.
BLUE-II Movement is available for $25 USD, SBB Exploration is $20 USD.
