Description: Vintage Synths Vol II is the culmination of extensive multisampling sessions with some amazing analog keyboards, vocoders and modules from the 70s and 80s:

The 101 is a classic 80s synth with undeniable character. Despite its simple architecture, the 101’s sound is quite renowned – it’s rugged, aggressive, elastic and fast, capable of producing acidic, wobbly bass and unmistakable leads. But above all, it is his character. There’s something about the sound of it that people love, especially when you start using resonance and overloading the VCF with a square wave. This is an excellent synthesizer with excellent dimensions and excellent sound, which is one of the electronic music instruments that have appeared since its inception – in the 80s.

SYS100M – Combining Modular Chaos with Classic Analog Synthesis
Over the past few decades, the System-100M has been a quiet mainstay in many of your favorite electronic works. From Yazoo/Erasure to Throbbing Gristle and Human League, it provides countless textures, sequences and basses, but has never received the full recognition it deserves. This epic modular synth has somehow been influenced by the more iconic synths (Moogs, Arps and other synths of the same era) that we have come to know and love.

The VP-330 is the most prolific vocoder of all time. The VP-330 is a vintage 10-band analog vocoder and string synthesizer from the late 70s, considered one of the best vocoders of all time. It has been used by Laurie Anderson, Midnight Star, Vaneglis, Pink Floyd – the list goes on. And while there have been many vocoders (including bad remakes) in the decades since its release, the VP-330 remains the most iconic, continuing to create expressive and unique vintage vocal textures and sounds.

2600: Explore the power of this legendary semi-modular synth. The 2600 is a three-oscillator monster that has been carving a path of sonic chaos across countless genres for the last 40 years. And, despite the fact that only 3,000 copies were released, the influence of this synthesizer on music is stunning! From R2D2 to The Normal to Herbie Hancock, artists using the 2600 have continued to push the synthesizer’s capabilities into the musical stratosphere, cultivating genres and blowing up dance floors.
