Oblivion Sound Lab has introduced a new soundset for Arturia’s newly updated Pigments software synthesizer instrument.

Inspired by ’80s synth soundtracks, Photon delivers 121 patches that are geared towards scoring synth-heavy films and producing music genres that draw on the VHS aesthetic of the era, such as Synthwave.

For this bank we took inspiration from composers such as Harold Faltermeyer, Paul Hertzog, Tangerine Dream and John Carpenter, whose scores left an indelible mark on the 1980s, as well as contemporary producers who have followed in their footsteps, such as Steve Moore, Voyag3r and Le Matos.

Inside you will discover growling basses, dynamic brasses, drifting analog keys, crisp electric pianos, powerful leads, vintage strings, cinematic pads and sweeps, and more. All patches have parameters mapped to Mod Wheel and macros, and NKS patches are included for integration with Native Instruments hardware.

Photon is on sale for the intro price of $21.75 USD for a limited time (regular $29 USD).
