Montreal, Quebec – December 16, 2014 – Applied Acoustics Systems releases the Abstractions sound bank for the Ultra Analog VA-2 synthesizer and AAS Player plug-ins in collaboration with artist and sound designer Richard Devine.
Abstractions is the third sound bank title by Richard Devine in AAS’ Sound Bank Series following Microsound Textures for the Chromaphone creative percussion synthesizer and Harmonic Geometry for the String Studio VS-2 string modeling synthesizer. This collection of 127 signature sounds covers standard analog categories but revisited with Richard Devine’s unique aesthetics. These finely crafted sounds range from super precise percussion hits to rich and intricate ambient textures and are sure to provide many hours of exploration in evocative soundscapes.
“We worked with Richard on Ultra Analog VA-2’s factory sounds at the time of the release; We enjoyed the sounds so much that we asked him for more in the form of a signature sound bank,” says Marc-Pierre Verge, CEO of Applied Acoustics Systems, “The result is a collection of exclusive sounds that once again showcase beautifully Richard’s style and mastery of sound design.”
The Abstractions sound bank is available now with a regular price is $39. Until January 16th, 2015, the Abstractions sound bank is available at the special introductory price of $19.50.
