The 127 presets of Plastic Pop muse back at arpeggio, bass, effects, lead, and pad sounds of the 80s. Included favorites from analog and digital synths, guitar synths, and of course the “honky-tonk” sound! A superb kit to revisit the top new wave and synthpop albums from Duran Duran, Japan, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, and ABC. Shoulder pads are not included.
André is the founder of The Solos, and a composer and creative sound designer specializing in movie trailers and advertising campaigns. Recent credits include the blockbusters The Transformers, Iron Man and Wolverine, and tv spots for British Airways, Nike and Audi. He also worked with artists such as Scissor Sisters, Madonna, and Justin Timberlake.
Prior to The Solos, André collaborated on records for a diverse range of artists – most notably Tom Hulkenberg (aka Junkie XL) as an audio designer and synthesizer programmer. In 2006 André started AME music, an Amsterdam-based company that specialized in music and creative sound design for film, advertising, and trailers. AME’s portfolio included Native Instruments, Applied Acoustics Systems, EA Games, Lexus, and Citizen, amongst others. AME Music was dissolved into The Solos in early 2016.
Plastic Pop was created with the Ultra Analog VA-3 analog synthesizer. You can obviously play and edit the sounds in Ultra Analog VA-3, but you can also access and play them via the free AAS Player included with your Plastic Pop purchase.
Ultra Analog VA-3 and AAS Player are compatible with nearly all DAWs.
