ZenSound has announced the release of a new collection of presets for the TAL J-8 software synth from TAL-Software, an emulation of the Jupiter 8 by Roland.
The Virgo soundset centers around analog synth nostalgia of 80s soundtracks. It features sounds designed for dreamy, emotive and suspenseful music projects and soundtracks.
Inspired by the soundtracks from Summer 84, Norskov and Stranger Things, and the music from Boards of Canada, Solar Fields and John Carpenter.
The sound of Virgo is haunting, dystopic, tense and warm; reminding things like vast icelandic landscapes, the far away unknown galaxies, a cold and smokey town from Russia during the winter or the investigations behind a series of strange crimes in a small town.
Formed by lush leads and pads, dynamic sequences and arps, wonderful keys, tense cinematic bass loops, dystopian soundscapes, broken & faulty synths.
A number of the presets has been designed with the two layer option of J-8, allowing for morphed sounds and dynamic, ever changing sequencer patterns.
Virgo is available at an intro price of 16 EUR until February 11th, 2021. Use coupon code VIRGOATTRACTOR at the checkout to get the discount.
