Cradle has launched a new virtual instrument in collaboration with producer, songwriter, and musician Frank Dukes.

The Prince was created from a wide array of sounds created with an expansive collection of vintage synths at Frank’s studio.

With a career spanning 20 years, Frank Dukes has produced some of the most notable artists of this generation. Names like Drake, The Weeknd, James Blake, Frank Ocean, and Taylor Swift adorn his extensive body of work.

Frank’s application of emotive sounds, considered arrangements and lush melodies have become the hallmark of his songwriting and production.

The Prince includes over 130 source samples from numerous vintage synths, which can be manipulated with two independent layers, complemented by a plethora of controls and a full suite of studio-quality effects to help you craft your perfect sound. The instrument comes with over 250 presets curated and created by Frank.

Available in VST3, AU and AAX plugin formats for Windows and Mac, The Prince is priced $119 USD for a limited time (regular $179 USD).
