Xenos Soundworks has released Videogame Mania, a soundset for the Massive software synthesizer by Native Instruments.
Videogame Mania is a fine collection of 50 retro chiptune style patches for Native Instruments Massive in both KSD and NMSV file formats. This soundset contains classic SID arps, authentic videogame sound effects, gritty 8-bit basses and quirky leads which fans of such systems as the NES, Commodore64 and others will instantly recognize. Macro Controls have been assigned in each patch for maximum versatility and tweakability.
Videogame Mania is available to purchase for the introductory price of $5.45 USD.
