Beatskillz introduces RetroKZ, a virtual instrument with the sounds in the style of 80’s soundtracks, available in VST, AU (Windows, Mac OS X) and EXS24 format.
Retro KZ is inspired by soundtracks from films and series as well as pop music from the 80s and 90s such as John Carpenter, Harold Faltermeyer, Jan Hammer, Michael Jackson, Prince, Night Rider, The Terminator, Commando etc..
These retro sounds were recorded using analog outboard gear such as the Yamaha DX7, the Roland D-50, the Korg M1, the Oberheim OBX, the Prophet 5, the Syntex.
To further emphasize the vibe of the 80s, the proven processors such as NEVE 1073, Distressor, Api 2500, Drawmer 1978 were added.
Effects from Eventide and Lexicon were used for sound enhancement.
Beatskillz’s Retro KZ for Windows and Mac is available for an introductory price of 39 USD.
In addition to the plug-in formats (AU, VST), an EXS24 version is offered, which can be loaded into the Halion sampler.
The producers of Pop, EDM, Trap and Dance-Music, who want to spice up their productions with the 80s flair should take a closer look on this new plugin
