The Unfinished has announced the release of Diva Skyline Vol 1 and Diva Skyline Vol 2, two new synth soundsets celebrating the beauty of analogue synth sounds, using u-he’s wonderful analogue-modelling softsynth, Diva.
As the classic sounds of analogue synthesizers becomes ever more popular, not everyone can afford a collection of Junos, Prophets, Moogs and Oberheims. However, u-he’s Diva does give us about as accurate a recreation of those circuit-based monsters as we can get on a sensible budget.
Diva Skyline aims to provide some of the much-loved analogue vibe for modern composing and electronica. It’s inspired by recent synth-heavy film scores such as Tron Legacy by Daft Punk, Oblivion by M83, and Ex Machina by Geoff Barrow and Ben Salisbury; as well as less well known gems such as It Follows by Disasterpiece and The Duke of Burgundy by Cat’s Eyes. There are even a few nods to classic John Carpenter and the revivalist Synthwave genre, as well as The Unfinished favourites: Olafur Arnalds and Jon Hopkins.
Both volumes provide esoteric pads, harrowing basses, exotic sequences and arps, mesmerising leads, and hellish soundscapes. All with the power, punch and delicacy you’d expect of accurate analogue circuit modelling.
Diva Skyline Vol 1 and 2 are available for purchase for £19.99 GBP + VAT each. Volume 2 is available for £9.99 GBP when purchasing together with Volume 1 before June 5th, 2015. Use coupon GAMLASTAN at checkout to take advantage of this offer.
