Francis Prève Mattel Synsonics Kit
Francis Prève has released a free Mattel Synsonics Kit sound library for Ableton Live.
In Francis Prève's own words: "Unlike the more insectile sounds coming from the Roland and Korg boxes of the same era, the sound of the Synsonics was vaguely reminiscent of the Simmons SDS-V or Pollard Syndrum. The toms had an aggressive vibe that few products from that time could match – and the cymbals were glorious blasts of white noise."
"About a month ago, I pulled my Synsonics of its shelf in my studio, fired it up and started sampling. The results are in this Live 7 compatible Drum Rack."
The Mattel Synsonics Kit for Ableton is available to download at no cost.
