Inst Bundle by Exclusive Bundles+

'Loving the VirtualCZ plug-in . I have been a long time fan of CZ-101 synthesizer which I still own and use today. This plug-in goes far beyond with endless sound shaping possibilities, and its much easier to edit. It will become again an instant classic!'

Introducing the Retro 80's Bundle [Limited Time Exclusive Bundle]

Travel back in time and get the nostalgic, classic sound of the 80's!

Many people fondly remember the CZ synths and they have become retro-classics that are highly sought after, having been used on countless techno, house, rave and synth-pop records in the late 80s and early 90s. The VirtualCZ is an award winning emulation of the CZ range that stays true to the origianl Phase Distortion synths but has been developed to go beyond the original's capabilities. 

The Retro Hit is a drum instrument that has been inspired from the pop/ dance and rock sound of popular bands and artists from the 1980s. The plugin provides 50 Drum kits of Kicks, Snares, Hats, Cymbals, Claps, Toms ,FX and Percussion which are available as processed versions already treated with eq, compression and reverb, and also some dry versions. 

The Retro 80's Bundle comes equipped with a 80's Expansion for the VirtualCZ: Digital Nostalgia along with a sleek 1.4GB Loopmasters Neon Horizon Sample Pack. The samples include pianos, keys, guitars, sax, synth string and pad samples both in loop and one-hit form all ranging from 70-90BPM.

The Retro 80's Bundle is time limited and exclusive to Plugin Boutique. 

Plugin Boutique VirtualCZ

Add a touch of the classic: VirtualCZ

Plugin Boutique present VirtualCZ, inspired by an iconic series of digital synthesizers made in the 1980s. 

Many people fondly remember the CZ synths and they have become retro-classics that are highly sought after, having been used on countless techno, house, rave and synth-pop records in the late 80s and early 90s.

Many artists still use the CZ today for its unique sounds, including great pads and synth strings, screaming leads, big basses, weird FX, metallic percussion and above all RAVE ORGANS. Like many timeless synths, it has a unique sonic quality and will be a beneficial addition to anyone's synth collection.

If you are new to the CZ you'll find that VirtualCZ delivers the same sound quality as its hardware predecessor, along with new features that bring its sound up to date.

  • As with its hardware inspiration, VirtualCZ uses Phase Distortion, which is similar to FM  Synthesis but easier to program.
  • Big stereo UNISON sounds (new feature!) - great for modern synth stabs.
  • Familiar ADSR envelopes (or switch to 8 Stage MSEG for the purists!)
  • 200 quality presets featuring both retro and modern sounds. 

If you are familiar with the CZ synths, we think you will find VirtualCZ faithfully emulates the sound of the hardware in both sound and feel, also offering some great new features.

  • VirtualCZ mirrors the synthesis architecture of the original.
  • All key synthesis functions are on  the front panel, with graphic envelope displays - no more menus!
  • It can load and transmit CZ patches (it functions as a sysex editor for the hardware).

Features

  • Recreates the unique synthesis engine of the CZ synths
  •  Works as a SYSEX editor/librarian for all CZ hardware as well as an emulation.(it models the flagship CZ-1, but is also compatible with the CZ-101, CZ-1000, CZ-3000 and CZ-5000)
  • 2 CZ-style Phase Distortion oscillators per voice (each has 8 wave shapes, which can be different for alternate cycles)
  • 6 loop-able envelope generators per voice (switchable between easy-to-use ADSR and powerful CZ-style 8-Stage MSEG modes)
  • Tempo sync-able LFO for vibrato, with 7 shapes
  • Ring Modulation and Noise Modulation
  • 32 voice polyphonic/mono/legato modes
  • Unison and detuning effects
  • Stereo panning effects
  • Microtonal tuning support
  • Vintage stereo chorus/ensemble effect (2 different algorithms)
  • Randomization of parameters
  • Easy to use interface (all key synthesis functions accessible on the front panel)
  • Includes over 200 high quality presets plus ability to load thousands of CZ patches online
  • Presets come in multiple formats: fxp/aupreset/vstpreset/tfx
  • Import/export presets for all plugin formats
  • Optional cross-format preset browser
  • Available for Mac and PC in VST2, VST3, AU and AAX plug-in formats plus standalone app

BeatSkillz Retro Hit

Retro Hit is inspired from the pop/ dance and rock sound of popular bands and artists from the 1980s. The plugin provides 50 Drum kits of Kicks, Snares, Hats, Cymbals, Claps, Toms ,FX and Percussion which are available as processed versions already treated with eq, compression and reverb, and also some dry versions. We wanted to provide the processed sounds as well, so that the producer/ musician can be instantly inspired and can get to producing music , rather than tweaking the raw sounds from scratch. Dry untreated versions are also provided for those who want to tweak them on their own. The Plugin provides drum kits of 12 sounds per patch. These as visible as buttons that light up when played on the GUI.

Individual control per drum is also provided for Volume and Pan. Global settings for Pitch, Reverb, Attack and Sustain are also provided. Find mixed kits, kick drums, snares, hats, cymbals, toms, percussion and fx and mixed kits as preset kits to inspire you. All of the 600+ Drum samples are also provided as .wavs to use in other samplers such as hardware samplers and also controller based beatboxes such as Akai mpc and NI machine. You can also load them in any other soft sampler of your choice, or simply place them in your audio track. You can choose your method of production, making this a very versatile library.

These samples were recorded directly from vintage drum machines namely, EMU sp12, OB- MX, LINN DRUM and Fairlight. The sounds were tracked and recorded through a selection of tube and solid state pre-amps and compressors such as NEVE 1073, Thermionic Culture Rooster, and Electrodyne pres, Distressor, Api 2500 and Drawmer 1978.

Hardware Eq, compression and reverbs were applied to the dry samples to re-create the original 80s vibe. These sounds will be instantly recognizable and will inspire you to work fast and sound great.
