Loops de la Crème has launched Battle of the Mini Synths, a Kontakt instrument featuring the sounds of a collection of portable synths and toy keyboards.
Julien of Loops de la Cremè has collected a number of mini synths over the years. He loves the unique sound of them, but using the synths in the studio can be unpractical for various reasons.
Since I really wanted to use these sounds in a more efficient way in the studio, I started 6 years ago to sample them in great detail and recreate some favourite patches in Kontakt. I recently acquired a couple of new mini synths, and designed a practical Kontakt skin with presets and effects that could be used for all these keyboards.
The library Battle of the Mini Synths is the fruit of these efforts, it features 150 raw presets from 7 different mini synths, along with 8 drum kits and lots of additional patches and functions.
Each of the featured synth was chosen for its sounds, and lots of efforts were made to retain the character of the source and capture the essence of the raw presets.
