The instruments—Sequential Circuits Prophet VS, Korg DW8000, Kawai K3 and K5, and Yamaha TX81Z—were painstakingly recorded using studio-quality analog gear including the Phoenix Audio Nice DI, an Apogee Rosetta 200, and VoVox cables.
There are 5.9GB of material with 367 presets, which utilize 10,000 samples to create a huge palette of sounds. Additionally, the RetroMod plug-ins not only render the feel of the original instruments, but also integrate current technological conveniences. An XY pad allows you to manipulate parameters such as FM, ring mod, distortion, and filter frequency in real-time. Reverb, chorus, and distortion empower you with additional tools to sonically enhance your sound. This software is compatible with Mac, Windows, and Linux computers. It can operate as an Audio Units, AAX, or VST plug-in.
