Requires full version of
Native Instruments Kontakt 5
ZED 80 Vol.2 has a brand new custom user interface for 2015. Along with loads of great new presets and multis.
For Kontakt 5.2.1 or higher (Full retail version of Kontakt is required (not for the free Kontakt PLAYER)). Just like Vol. 1 this Kontakt instrument uses sounds sampled from various 80s samplers and synthesizers.
In creating this library I wanted to provide an instrument that will have a wide range of sounds, playable and useful in various studio situations. Some users of Volume 1 have stated it has come in very handy in studio sessions, and a sound from Zed 80 Vol. 1 has rescued a failing session.
Over 1.5GB of samples compressed to just over a 1GB using Native Instruments’ compression system and well over 200 presets ready for your musical productions or to tweak away with using the custiom graphical user interface designed by Anders Hedström (Flavours of Lime).
The libraries of Zed80 Vol.1 and Vol.2 do have a lo-i vibe to them due to the nature of the older samplers some of the sounds have come from. I think it is true older samplers do have a certain magic to them and vibe. The output from the samplers was connected to a series of vintage valve pre-amps before sampling for use in Kontakt.
The sounds in this collection will be suited to most styles of music from ambient/electronica to dance music. Lots of bass sounds, haunting pads, atmospheres, keys and MULTI Kontakt instruments are included with the download.
All sounds are loaded into memory at the same time and then selected from a simple drop down list, making sample banks selection quick, easy and fun.
All audio demos use only the sounds and effects that come with Zed80 Vol 2.
