Synth Magic has announced Exploration 1, an instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Kontakt synth based on the 1970’s ARP Explorer 1 synthesiser: 2.5GB of samples(compressed to 1.5GB using NI’s lossless compression) taken from a real ARP Explorer1.

Synth Magic Exploration 1 comprises the raw oscillators and a collection of presets made on a real ARP Explorer 1 using the original ARP patch overlays and owners’ manual patch sheets, which we then sampled. There are also a number of custom samples take from custom presets, once again made on the real machine and sampled. All easily accessible from a drop down menu for fast and easy access to the sounds.

The library is available to pre-order for £20 GBP until October 1st, 2014 (regular price £35 GBP).
