Kilohearts has announced the release of Hardwire by New Loops, a new Content Bank containing 50 customizable analog-style presets for the Phase Plant software synthesizer.
The pack brings a collection of warm and fuzzy sounds, perfectly imperfect and 100% tweakable to your taste with intuitive macro controls for every preset.
The process of sound design in software can feel far-removed from the fizzing, buzzing, crackling circuitry of analog synthesis. But this Content Bank, from New Loops, brings the smell of warm components to Phase Plant. Not literally of course. There is no odour element to this product. That would be silly.
What you do get is 50 quintessentially analog sounds for Phase Plant, from smooth, squelchy basses to rich detuned string-like pads, roaring leads to gentle ambiences. You’ll recognise the spirit of many synths-past, from the early years right through the many heydays of analogue electronic sound design.
The Hardwire Content Bank is available from Kilohearts, priced $29 USD / 29 EUR.
