Hollow Sun has released Techtron, a sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
Using battered casework and components we salvaged from old Soviet Union submarine radio equipment that was languishing and due for cruel and ruthless de-commisioning, Techtron brings thoroughly modern sounds in re-purposed retro style.
With two ‘super’ oscillators featuring thick, detuned sawtooths (which we call ‘iSaw’ here at HS Towers and come courtesy of HS chum, BeMuso) through a multimode, dual slope filter, two envelopes, two LFOs, a pitch EG, mono and poly playback modes with glide, etc., Techtron offers instant ‘techno’ sounds that are powerful, wide, bright, brash, fizzy and anthemic and yet also capable of chunky basses, spiky arpeggios, thick leadlines and lush, luxuriously smooth pads plus dark, broody and moody textures.
