March 16 2020 | 962 KB
The Unfinished and Luftrum have once again teamed up in the sound lab, this time to bring you Synthwave Diva 2 the follow-up to their collaboration from 2016.
The result is a release that sounds retroactive, yet both contemporary and innovative in its production and full of the two sound designers craftsmanship and signature sound – with playable synthpop leads, analog basslines, vibrant arps, funky basses and rich pads.
The set contains 128 fresh presets for U-He Diva and begins where the first collab left off, taking inspiration from past pioneers and their modern day followers of synthwave, cinematic darksynth and modern synthpop.
Influenced by the likes of John Carpenter, Le Matos, Michael Oakley, Timecop1983, Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein and sprinkled with a hint of filmscore synthwork,: think Perturbator meet Trent Reznor with a twist of aesthetic dreamwave and modern electronica on top.
All presets leave a few dB headroom, are fully NKS compatible and include NKS presets; plus there is an installation PDF describing where to place the presets. The background image of the soundset cover is created and licensed by Skiegraphic Studio. All sounds in the demos below are from Synthwave Diva 2, with the exception of drums and effects.
