Yo what’s good fam!
Back with some more raw sounds from Goldbaby
But not drums…nope…got some synths for ya again
Today I’m checking out Synth Purveyor Vol 1
let’s get it in!
This is a nice collection of synths that have been “Goldbabyized” and the way only Hugo can do.
He takes various analog, virtual analog, and digital synths….fuses them with premium outboard gear….
And shares the offspring with the world….
or at least those who decide to purchase the product!
These are multi-sampled instruments begging to be played
- content: over 160 patches (1800 24bit samples)
- format: kontakt (full version) and EXS
- price: $49
How does it sound?
Seriously, some of these sounds are really thick man, specifically some of the saws, subs, and leads
Even the “not as thick” sounds still have a warm quality to them
However, the stuff is recorded very well, as usual…..
but the fx and processing done takes them to another level
The custom kontakt interface makes it very easy to reach out and tweak the sounds too
What’s the bottom line?
As I said previously, I’m really glad Goldbaby is taking what he’s done to drums and applying to some of the vintage synths and gear he has access too
It brings a thick, warm, organic quality of sound to many of us that may never get a chance to play with some of these classics
I give Synth Purveyor 4 out of 5 subs, it’s a really nice deviation from the sound of other synthesizer libraries
But what I love about his libraries, is they aren’t just 1 to 1 samples of the gear
He adds his own character to them through the use of his vast array of new and vintage outboard processors
This gives his synth sounds a very different feel and texture compared to most synth samples or plugins
He also keeps his prices very reasonable….so much that you almost can’t leave without making a couple purchases
Checkout the demo on the site: http://www.goldbaby.co.nz/spvol1.html
download and read the pdf manual that comes with it, and make sure you stop by the freebie section
leave a comment below, let me know what you think
They definitely provide a nice contrast to the “digital” sound of most vst plugins these days (not that digital is bad, it’s just a different texture)
