Influenced by the sounds of former hardware synthesizers and drum machines from the 80s, ModeAudio has published the 579 MB sound archive, Synthetica, with loops and single samples. Among the loops are Arpeggios (20), Basses (17), SFX and Textures (21), Synthesizers (47), Cymbals and Percussions (39). There are also 45 drum samples and four sound effects. The speed ranges from 80 to 140 BPM. In addition, you can access 81 MIDI files. The sound experience of the atmospheres varies from restless to soothing, which are often based on noise sweeps and like to wander back and forth in the stereo field. The synth loops are knitted from inspirational melodies and chords. The drum loops, which have been partially filtered or oversaturated, move far away from the usual 4/4 beat.
The atmospheres and drums sound good throughout, but carry with them an unconventional nuance and that‘s what makes Synthetica so interesting. Ideal for alternative vintage fans.
