Luftrum has announced the release of a new soundset for Reveal Sound’s Spire software synthesizer.

Designed by musician and sound designer Michael Oakley, Synth City contains 64 presets that encompass a range of emotions from uplifting, through nostalgic to melancholy.

Like the last waning days of summer, it will leave you longing for those nights that reside between memory and feeling. Synth City is about 80’s soaked synths that splash your tracks with fuchsia colors. Sturdy muscular bass that supports your arrangements like reliable well-worn denim. Lush vintage pads flow like those long luscious locks of hair that you used to have, and night cloaked synths and sequences usher in a moodier vibe.

Of course, it is not all about nostalgia, and like any Luftrum release, Synth City accounts for the present and future with forward-thinking design aesthetics. Spires excellent filters and oscillators are given a full extended workout, and the small touches to each patch elevates them above the norm. Synth City feels equally at home with Synthwave, EDM, Future Bass, Lo-Fi, or Synthpop.

Synth City for Spire is available at a “Pay-what-you-want” price until January 19th, 2022 (minimum $5 USD). The regular price will be $19 USD.
