Description

NOSTALGIA is one of our most popular and successful sample libraries. It features around 1.3 gigabytes of WAV sounds (over 4500 samples) from four decades of electronic instruments, and more than 1,100 accompanying instrument patches for KONTAKT, EXS24 or Reason NN-XT. Instruments are organised into the following categories: US Classics, Euro Classics, Japanese Classics, Playback Keyboards, Organs, Electro-Mechanicals, Digital ROMpler Synths, Vintage Samplers, Cheap n Cheezy, Obscure Synths, Drum Synths, Classic Beatboxes, Obscure Beatboxes, Sci-Fi, Atmosferics, String Synths, and Basses. Programming wizard and all-round synth enthusiast STEVE HOWELL has used his 30+ years of experience and knowledge of these various instruments to create arguably the best and most accurate representations of some of the world’s greatest synths, keyboards and beat boxes that he has either owned or used in a professional capacity as either a sound designer, sound engineer, player or composer. Steve has also used his 16+ years of developing professional sample sound libraries to provide highly optimised and memory-efficient, seamlessly looped samples of a heritage of instruments that have paved the way for where we are today - over 40 years of innovation and (often naive) pioneering spirit encapsulated in one definitive collection of abject ‘NOSTALGIA’! Whatever your chosen musical genre there’s a place for any of these sounds in your music. Whether it’s old-skool lo-fi beatboxes, huge Gothic Tron sounds, smooth Prophet pads and strings, beefy Moog basses or leads, classic electric pianos, swirly string synths, cheezy toys, classic samplers, brittle digital synths, evolving S+S textures ... you name it - with over 4,500 samples and more than 1,100 patches, it’s probably there in this huge instrument collection that has effectively been 40 years in the making.

UVI Vintage Legends !

...to Jean Michel Jarre's Rendezvous 2 Laser Harp part... I think I heard a more convincing sound from VirusB patch, Zero-G Nostalgia patch... Overall however it seems to be a quite good collection of sounds.. but not perfect emulations of the original instruments, quite disappointing on that side. They did a better work with their other products

PPG Wave & Prophet VS modern day equivalents?

...to have one called "Definitive PPG," which I believe was discontinued, but part of it was included in the Zero-G Nostalgia library (not sure if that's still available either). It's useful in the sense that you can sort of A/B playing some of the more iconic PPG patches sampled from the real thing vs....
