Sonic Cat releases Pop Synth for Kontakt

Related: , , , Posted in news on Apr 17, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Sonic Cat has launched Pop Synth, an 80s retro pop sound synthesizer for Native Instruments, featuring the sounds of the Roland JX-3P.

Sonic Cat Pop Synth

JX-3P is polyphonic synthesizer produced in 1983. But Pop Synth is a reinterpretation, not a restoration. Sonic Cat recorded all key ranges at 24-bit, and captured sound originality by sample looping.

Pop Synth is also an instrument for playback of the original JX-3P’s preset sounds. Pop Synth can play moods just like dual layers of JX-10 because it can make new sounds using the twin-engine system.

Pop Synth features

  • 312 .NKI Kontakt instrument presets for Kontakt 5.3+.
  • 1,951 samples.
  • 24-bit / 44.1 kHz .NCW format samples.
  • About 2.7 GB installed.

The Pop Synth is available to purchase for the introductory price of $35 USD until April 23rd, 2014 (regular $59 USD).

Navi Retlav Dirty Transistor Bass

Navi Retlav has announced the release of Dirty Transistor Bass, a sample pack featuring 280 WAV loops of the Roland TB-303 bassline synthesizer.

For the first time ever, Navi Retlav Studio jumped out of the ReFill development and made a pure WAV sample pack that can be used in any DAW you like. You gonna to love it, coz it’s all about TB-303 sounds.

Especially for you, we designed 280 WAV loops in 35 flavors and styles ranging from 80 up to 185 BPM. Each of the 35 loop sets has been carefully designed to provide you with everything from the gentle sound with a bit of analog saturation, up to the legendary raging squelchy and screaming resonances treated with brutal multi-band distortions. This sample pack, also includes 150 WAV one-shot samples with sustain loop points. It makes them ready to use in any software or hardware sampler, which turns them into fully playable instruments that can be used not only as bass sounds, but also as the higher pitched gritty lead.

This sample pack was made with love to fat distortion and aggressive lines, so it makes it perfect to boost the energy of every modern music production.
