Plughugger has announced JP8K Legends, a sound expansion of 150 new sounds for the Spectrasonics Omnisphere aimed for modern dance music.
Few synthesizers had such an impact on modern dance music as the Roland JP-8000, which was the first synthesizer that introduced the Supersaw waveform.
The soundset is divided into two parts. The first part is a collection of 100 presets all using the JP-8000 oscillators in Omnisphere – which quickly turned into a real challenge, since Omnisphere only contain two different flavor of the JP-8000: one typical Supersaw and one darkish string-sound. Thanks to the flexible sound bending capabilities in Omnisphere we twisted and turned the oscillators until we had 100 arpeggios, basses, plucks and pads.
For the second part of the soundset – we took 50 of our favorite presets and changed the JP-8000 samples into the excellent virtual analog oscillators in Omnisphere.
The soundset is available to purchase for 9.90 EUR.
