[NAMM] EastWest Phaedra
Zero-G/XFONIC has tapped the raw sonic power of VSTi analog synths for its latest collection Phaedra. EASTWEST, exclusive U.S. distributor of Zero-G, will debut the new collection.
The culmination of a three-year project by producer/composer Sam Spacey, Phaedra offers users with one of the most complete virtual analog synthesizers ever created — including over 4 gigabytes of both samples and patches — made specifically with composers in mind.
Constructed with the same attention to detail as a huge orchestral sample library, each of the collection’s 20,000 samples has been edited and looped by hand. To give users access to the random magic of an analog synth sound, Phaedra’s loops have been left very long to extract this distinct sound. In most presets, each separate note has been sampled to eliminate aliasing within the instrument’s range.
Synths featured in the collection include: Mini Moog D, Welsh Moog, Yamaha CS5, Yamaha CS-15, Yamaha CS-30, Korg MonoPoly, Korg MS-20, Studio Electronics SE-1, Studio Electronics SE-1 with filter input, Roland SH-101, Crumar Multiman, Akai AX-73, Analog Phaser (based on the Small Stone that was modified and used by renown electronic musician Jean Michel Jarre), Roland Analog Chorus Pedal, and Ensoniq Esq-1.
The collection is available in VST 2.0, DXi, ASIO, AU, RTAS formats for both Mac and PC. Phaedra retails for $199.95.
