SampleTekk has launched a limited time sale on the Iconic Drum Synths Bundle, a bundle of 4 drum synthesizer instruments for Kontakt by New York City-based developer Iconic Instruments.
- Iconic V: The Iconic V is a Kontakt version of the most recognizable drum synth of the 1980s. Boasting eight fully tweakable drum and cymbal modules, a comprehensive mixer and onboard effects, this drum synthesizer does both classic, and contemporary with ease. Recreate the sonic footprints of great artists like Duran Duran, Howard Jones and Naked Eyes, or use the new circuit bent parameters and tone-shaping effects to craft an entirely original sound.
- Syndrum: In 1976 Pollard introduced the first commercially available drum synthesizer, the Syndrum. The Syndrum and the DS-4 were part of the technological revolution taking place in the late 70’s and early 80’s that made synthesizers more accessible, which gave way to new sounds and new musical forms going into the 1980’s.
- DS/4: In 1978 Toyo Gakki of Japan answered back with the Ult-Sound DS-4. The Syndrum and the DS-4 were part of the technological revolution taking place in the late 70’s and early 80’s that made synthesizers more accessible, which gave way to new sounds and new musical forms going into the 1980’s.
- Clap Trap: The Iconic Clap Trap is a software homage to the very first analog clap synthesizer, the ultra-rare 1979 Clap Trap. The Clap Trap was inspired by 70’s Disco recordings, which ubiquitously featured handclaps on the 2 and 4 of every bar (especially in the chorus).
The bundle is on sale for only $99 USD through August 14th, 2022 (regular value $217 USD). Iconic V runs in Kontakt and the free Kontakt Player, while Syndrum, DS/4 and Clap Trap require the full version of Kontakt 5.6.1 or higher.
