DECATUR – The Hit Sounds Of The 1980s
Decatur is a sampled-based Kontakt library highlighting the sounds of influential bands and artists throughout the 1980s. These classic sounds featured in countless radio hits have become a staple of musical nostalgia over the years. All of these sounds are now available, for the first time, in one library!
Decatur is aimed at anyone searching for classic sounds to create and experiment in their projects. Keyboardists who are weekend musical warriors have a huge list of presets to play with. Although this is a sampled-based Kontakt library, the sounds have been sampled at numerous velocities for sound variety.
Decatur is divided into 8 categories:
This is a collection of famous arpeggiated sounds heard in some of the classic hits.
Synth bass patches sampled from legendary synths known for their bass sounds such as the MiniMoog, the Prophet V, Roland’s TB-303 as well as others.
Analog and FM Brass like the Yamaha DX7, Oberheim, and Prophet 5. This section includes multi-layered brass samples for complex brass sounds such as those heard on Prince and Toto albums.
This library includes samples that would not necessarily fit into the Leads, the Piano, or the Pads category. In some cases, the samples are a combination of all of the above.
Leads sampled from vintage machines as well as virtual synths. From Lipps Inc.’s “Funkytown” to the fat brass synth used by Keith Emerson during “Touch & Go”.
Mostly Hammond Organ B-3 patches and a couple of classic organ patches provided by Yamaha DX7 and Korg M1.
Legendary pad sounds of synthesizer giants like the Oberheim OB-8, Roland’s Jupiter 8, and Sequential Circuits Prophet among others.
DX electric pianos similar to those from the Yamaha DX7, the Korg 01W, and the Fender Rhodes piano.
This library of sounds is ideal for indie filmmakers, game developers, artists, multimedia designers, and also social media content creators. For more info please visit our almalibrestudos.com/decatur page or like us on facebook.com/almalibrestudios.
