Plughugger has launched Dark Techno, a new soundset featuring 150 deep techno sounds for the Diva virtual analog synthesizer instrument by u-he.

Plughugger has released Dark Techno, a sound expansion with 150 new sounds for the U-he Diva and is a toolbox for underground techno and minimal and genres requiring less cuteness and more industrialism.

Diva is well known for its faithful analog tone, but with Dark Techno we set out to make sounds as far away from analog beauty we possibly could get. The keywords for the design were Dark. Murky. Noisy. Threatening.

To move out from the comfortable zone of traditional analogue tones we had to dive deeper into features often overlooked in Diva, such as cross modulation, resonators, ring modulation, tunable noise, FM and of course the new digital oscillator, which is a real powerhouse for creating sounds that go outside the boundaries normally associated with Diva.

The result is a collection sounds aimed for producers who want to inject a dose of darkness into their film and music productions.

Dark Techno features

  • 43 Atmospheres and Drones.
  • 79 Bass sounds.
  • 14 Effects.
  • 14 Lead and synth sounds.

The soundset is available for purchase for the introductory price of 9.90 EUR until November 23rd, 2014 (regular 14.90 EUR).
