Six very different sound designers have created a wide range of new sounds covering everything from classic analog vintage leads and pads, FM pianos, evil distorted rave basses and complex performance patches with multilayered synchronized arpeggiating monsters and much more.

Kristofer Ulfves Bank NEW

Federico Solazzo Bank NEW
Federico tells us “my aim in designing these sounds was to make this synth react and interact with the users, “forcing” them to listen and react as well! Like a massive synth in a real acoustic instrument behavior box! It will never sound the same, and it will take time to learn how to play with its reactions”.
Federico Solazzo is a sophisticated and eclectic pianist of funk-soul origins. At the moment, he’s playing along (as keyboardist, musical director and programmer) with Italian pop-star Alexia on her world tour and with the band of the amazing Jamal Thomas (Maceo Parker’s drummer). He’s been endorsed by Nord Keyboards since 2008.
