Applied Acoustics Systems has released Plastic Pop, an Ultra Analog VA-1 & AAS Player sound bank featuring a collection of 127 sounds inspired by the 80s and created by sound designer Andre Ettema.

The 127 presets of Plastic Pop muse back at arpeggio, bass, effects, lead, and pad sounds of the 80s. Included are analog and digital favorites from the Juno, DX7, Wavestation, and D-50 as well as guitar synths, the TX81Z’s LatelyBass, and of course the Honkytonk sound! A superb kit to revisit the top new wave and synthpop albums from Duran Duran, Japan, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, and ABC. Shoulder pads are not included.

Composer/sound designer Andre Ettema is specialized in audio design and sound programming for artists and picture. Andre has been working closely with Junkie XL and collaborated as additional audio designer and synthesizer programmer for a lot of film and game scores. Credits include work for Scissor Sisters, Madonna, Justin Timberlake, and soundtracks for EA games SSX Blur and Need for Speed Prostreet.
