ZenSound has launched Pixelations, a soundset for the Zebra 2 synthesizer instrument by u-he.
This soundset covers a wide range of 8 bit sounds. For making all the sounds I’ve used completely the modular capacities of Zebra 2, that gives to this soundset a retro and advanced modular taste.
This soundset is formed by keyboards, drums, basses, leads, atmospheres, SFX, sequences and arpeggios. All these sounds have an advanced 8 bit taste!
- 128 patches in Zebra 2 native format.
- A guided installation in pdf and txt format.
- All the patches are royalty free.
- Includes free updates (volumes will be normalized and Mod Wheel control will be added in next free update).
The soundset is available to purchase for 14 EUR. Requires u-he Zebra v2.6 or higher.
