Vintage Synth Software and Libraries

4 posts in this topic

Figured I'd make a thread dedicated to the increasingly-popular (at least among sound designers) software and sound libraries dedicated to old-school synth sounds. Any contributions regarding what software/sounds you own and what you recommend will be welcomed. :-D

For me, I'm starting to get attracted to the Digital Sound Factory brand, which is primarily dedicated to recreating the sounds of '80s-to-late-'90s Emu and Ensoniq products. I'm also big on the software versions of Korg's digital synthesizers (M1 and Wavestation) and the Waldorf PPG Wave 3.V.

All you need for your old school stuff.

Definitely looks interesing. :-D I admit I'm reserved for the digital synthesizers of the past, but still, it looks like a nice virtual analog. XD

Note that Diva is not for the weak-of-processor.

You're gonna need some Sandy Bridge 3-4Ghz action to take care of multiple instances of that bad-boy. Even setting the accuracy (how well it models analogue sound) to "draft" (least accurate, less CPU driving) will take a small but substantial chunk out of your CPU usage capacity if you're not running a fast CPU.

It's pretty big on CPU consumption. (I realize consumption isn't technically the correct term, but you get my meaning)
