There is hardly any other category of instruments that has more instruments and sounds than vintage synthesizers. That's why it was a great pleasure and at the same time an obligation for us to show how our approach to these old treasures is and in which way we implement them. And since we have so many old milestones standing around here, it was somehow logical, too.

THE INSTRUMENTS

Easy Life
Bass Trinity
King Mark I
Velvet Blend
Aetherophone

Note: All KLANG instruments require the Kontakt full version 5.6.8 or higher.

EASY LIFE

Basic VCS3

'Easy Life' is simple and it is a 1 sample synthesizer. This single sound comes from our EMS VCS3 and sounds absolutely special. To make it even more fun, we added a simple arpegiator that plays the sounds randomly in a wild mix. It is always nice to see how easy good sounds can be.

BASS TRINITY

3 of a kind

5

The deep trinity is a wonderful mixture of three of the most classic bass synthesizers ever built. The Minimoog, the Prophet 5 and the bass drum sound of the TR 808.

You could probably create hundreds of variations of this mix, but we have reduced ourselves and from each of these milestones we just exported one best bass sound and put it together. Here we go.

KING MARK I

E Piano Deluxe

5

King Mark I - yes, that is truly royal. Of course there are 1,000 different Fender Rhodes Mark I sounds, but that can't stop us from creating four new interpretations of this glorious electric piano.

Our goal is not to reproduce a natural sound, but sounds that inspire. So we've patched the electric piano through our wall of modular electronic, coated the signals with a soft saturation made by tape machines as well as resynthesized it. Here is the result - 4 new Variations.

VELVET BLEND

A pad, Soft as silk

5

The 'Warm Strings' is a category of their own. We made a sound out of it.

We took the sounds of super-skilled synthesizers like the Yamaha CS-60, the Juno 60 or other analog synthesizers and made a huge string patch that sounds like infinity. Then we added a little bit of filters, phasers and other little things and the ultimate velvet sound is ready.

AETHEROPHONE

Waves Outta Space

5

The Aetherophone, or better known as the Theremin, was developed early in the 20th century, but has unfortunately never managed to set significant accents and lasting impressions in the music of the last century. So we thought it would be good to celebrate the Aetherophone once again

The Aetherophoen consists of 2 sounds: a sound of wobbling modulated Aerophone sounds called Geist and the typical outer space glide brightness.
