What is RetroKZ?

Retro KZ is a Virtual Instrument rompler inspired from 80s Soundtrack for Films and TV series, as well as Pop Music. Features sounds that you have heard countless times from that era and always wanted but couldn’t find! Here they are, sampled from original 80s Synths and samplers using high outboard gear for maximum fidelity.

 

FEATURES

Have you seen TV, Netflix, and closely listened to the scores of many contemporary movies today ?If Yes, then you can’t miss the fact the 80s/ 90s Sound is back BIG TIME!

We wanted to pay homage to the sounds of the great soundtracks from the 80s from composers and tv series /movies such as, John Carpenter, Harold Faltermeyer, Jan Hammer, Michael Jackson, Prince, Night Rider, The Terminator, Commando etc..

Certain iconic sounds showed up in many such projects, and we decided to embark on journey of bringing you the very sounds the you know, sounds you can identify immediately as soon as you hear them!

We sampled and tweaked these patched from original synths such as Fairlight, Synclavier, Yamaha DX7, Roland D-50, EMULATOR II, KORG M1, OBERHEIM OBX, PROPHET 5, SYNTHEX and many more…

These sounds were recorded using analog outboard gear such as NEVE 1073, Thermionic Culture Rooster, and Electrodyne pres, Distressor, Api 2500 and Drawmer 1978. Also External effects were used fro Eventide, Lexicon.

Hardware Eq, compression and reverbs were applied to the dry samples to re-create the original 80s vibe. These sounds will be instantly recognizable and will inspire you to work fast and sound great.

What is Retro Hit?

Retro Hit is an 80s inspired Drum Plugin features over 600 drum hits (both dry and processed) inspired from the pop/ dance and rock sound of popular bands and artists from the 1980s. The plugin provides 50 Drum kits of Kicks, Snares, Hats, Cymbals, Claps, Toms ,FX and Percussion which are available as processed versions already treated with eq, compression and reverb, and also some dry versions. We wanted to provide the processed sounds as well, so that the producer/ musician can be instantly inspired and can get to producing music , rather than tweaking the raw sounds from scratch. Dry untreated versions are also provided for those who want to tweak them on their own. The Plugin provides drum kits of 12 sounds per patch. These as visible as buttons that light up when played on the GUI.

 

FEATURES 

As the 80s sound is back and has been creeping up in modern chart topper tracks by major artists, as well as new soundtracks for tv series and film, we couldn’t hold back and had to release a drum plugin based on the hit sound of the 80s. Retro Hit is inspired from the pop/ dance and rock sound of popular bands and artists from the 1980s. The plugin provides 50 Drum kits of Kicks, Snares, Hats, Cymbals, Claps, Toms ,FX and Percussion which are available as processed versions already treated with eq, compression and reverb, and also some dry versions. We wanted to provide the processed sounds as well, so that the producer/ musician can be instantly inspired and can get to producing music , rather than tweaking the raw sounds from scratch. Dry untreated versions are also provided for those who want to tweak them on their own. The Plugin provides drum kits of 12 sounds per patch. These as visible as buttons that light up when played on the GUI.

Individual control per drum is also provided for Volume and Pan. Global settings for Pitch, Reverb, Attack and Sustain are also provided. Find mixed kits, kick drums, snares, hats, cymbals, toms, percussion and fx and mixed kits as preset kits to inspire you. All of the 600+ Drum samples are also provided as .wavs to use in other samplers such as hardware samplers and also controller based beatboxes such as Akai mpc and NI machine. You can also load them in any other soft sampler of your choice, or simply place them in your audio track. You can choose your method of production, making this a very versatile library.

These samples were recorded directly from vintage drum machines namely, EMU sp12, OB- MX, LINN DRUM and Fairlight. The sounds were tracked and recorded through a selection of tube and solid state pre-amps and compressors such as NEVE 1073, Thermionic Culture Rooster, and Electrodyne pres, Distressor, Api 2500 and Drawmer 1978.

Hardware Eq, compression and reverbs were applied to the dry samples to re-create the original 80s vibe. These sounds will be instantly recognizable and will inspire you to work fast and sound great.
