Retrograde

$25

A space synth soundset for u-he Repro-5

Retrograde contains 120 brand new patches that evoke the vastness and wonder of the cosmos.

For this set we have revisited the classic analog sounds of space synth pioneers such as Tangerine Dream, Jean-Michel Jarre, Vangelis, Software and Kitarō, as well as drawing inspiration from modern composers like Majeure, Wojciech Golczewski and Le Matos.

Inside you will discover seismic basses, interstellar leads, cinematic pads and soundscapes, ethereal bells, soaring strings, cosmic sweeps, alien sound effects, complex plucks and more. Most of the patches have parameters mapped to modwheel or aftertouch, and NKS patches are included for integration with Native Instruments hardware (no audio previews).

Retrograde is perfect for Berlin School, Space Ambient, Synthwave, film scoring, or any style of music that needs to transport the listener to the outer limits.

Reviews

“The leads are top-notch. The basses present themselves from muted growling to crisp and rich, exuding a pleasant warmth.”
