Classic Hardware Synths

As the name suggests, the RetroMod series is more than just a collection of sample based imitations – the goal of this series is to capture the soul of classic hardware synthesizers and add something new – a contemporary twist.

Retromod products

Each instrument is sampled meticulously and in great detail in order to guarantee the greatest realism. The samples are then combined in creative and unusual ways to offer more than just faithful recreations. Take the soul of these iconic synthesizers and push them in new directions, creating sounds simply unachievable from the source hardware. The UI design includes an XY pad assigned to parameters like FM, ring mod, distortion and filter frequency allowing for real time expressive manipulation. Also included is a suite of creative FX such as pristine reverbs, chorus and growling distortion to enhance your sound design. With huge sample libraries and preset banks, the RetroMod series allow you to add an arsenal of sound sources to your virtual studio.

LoFreq Wired

44 years of analog mono synths contained in three massive virtual instruments (Wired, Classic, and Modern). LoFreq Wired includes samples from 11 intriguing synthesizers produced from 2009 to 2018. Most of the semi-modular contemporary machines are represented: from the MFB Kraftzwerk to the Pittsburgh Modular SV-1 and Dreadbox Erebus V3. Not only do the RetroMod LoFreq plug-ins render the feel of the original instruments thanks to meticulous sampling, they also add a contemporary twist deriving from the secondary multimode resonant filter, while the second oscillator helps beef up the sound and the XY Pad is designed to add your choice of subtle or aggressive color to the original sound. Go big with 16 voices of unison and rapidly generate patterns with the integrated arpeggiator – creating pulsing basses, searing leads and thick pads just got freaky!

Digital 1

The 80s were a magical time for musicians, with the analog palette sharing the scene with an exciting new world of digital synthesis. The period between 1981 and 1987 were breakthrough years for the great hybrid machines: the PPG Wave series, the Korg DW series and the Prophet VS, just to mention a few. RetroMod Digital 1 brings you the best of that 80s sound: we captured thousands of waveforms generated from the original instruments to bring you a huge choice of evolving pads, shining electric pianos, metallic picked instruments, harsh basses and loads more. Digital 1 is the ultimate virtual instrument that lets you re-experience the hybrid 80s sound.

Lead

Six Clavia instruments sampled note by note, at multiple velocities and across 5 octaves, with every category of sound captured. Lush pads, shining electric pianos, cutting edge leads and PPG-like metallic sounds. RetroMod Lead is not just a simple reproduction of a collection of Clavia synthesizers but an inspiring combination of them. For example, the attack of an FM Piano generated by a modern NordLead A1 and the raw body of the sound produced by an early NordLead 1. The result is a powerful instrument with a unique personality twisting the soul of the most desirable synthesizers made by Clavia.
