ANALOG TOOLBOX FROM THE '80S, AND BEYOND
Pure '80s synth and drum machine sounds with creative arpeggiator - 260+ patches, including all-new and factory sounds and patterns
Deeply-editable, with both multi and individual instruments
INSPIRATION Super-7 delivers the unabashed sound of the '80s inspired by the MKS-7, an 8-voice rackmount synthesizer that combines the analog architecture of the famous 106 with PCM sounds from the 7o7 drum machine. In demand, often emulated, and a well loved instrument to this day, the 106 has been used widely by diverse artists ranging from pop legends Depeche Mode to the genre- defying Autechre. The sound is powerful and dynamic, capable of creating rich and charactered voices within modern productions or carrying entire tracks with its distinct, warm analog vibe.
INSTRUMENT Building on the concept and structure of our Program 24 library, Super-7 takes things a step further, pushing deep into the realms of synthwave, new wave, electro, house, '80s synthpop and more. We multi-sampled a huge selection of patches custom-designed on the MKS-7, and recorded every sample 3 times, normally, with the chorus engaged, and with the noise switch active, giving you unprecedented access to the hardware sound.
While the MKS-7 included the PCM sounds from the 7o7 we again took things a step further, including vintage era drums from an epic selection of hardware such as the 5o5, 6o6, 626, 7o7, 8o8, 9o9, and a host of modern sounds created in our very own Drum Designer to round it off.
Giving you everything you need to create rich analog synth lines, bass, drums, arps and phrases, all the way up to entire songs, Super-7 is an inspiring, versatile and extremely fun instrument. Loaded with 6 discrete layers, you have independent control over 8-tracks of drums, bass, melody, and 3 general purpose synth parts. Use these in any way you like, from conventional instrumentation to creative layering and effects.
Apart from the drums, each of the instrument layers in Super-7 has its own amp envelope, multimode filter with envelope, effects including drive, phasor, and EQ, send effects including reverb and delay, and a complex arpeggiator/phraser, allowing the creation of unique and moving sequences. You can tweak and adjust these modules completely, explore a wide selection of presets for both the sound engine and arpeggiator, or create your own.
In addition to the multi-instrument, each of the individual parts is available standalone, allowing you to load up just what you need in your arrangement. Each of the standalone instruments is identical to its multi counterpart, with the same selection of parameters, effects, effect sends, arps, and
preset. Use them to focus on individual sound design, when you only need a single instrument, or to create additional instances of particular instruments.
For those looking for a deep instrument to get lost in sound design Super-7 has huge potential, but it’s also ready to provide immediate inspiration. Packed with ready-to-go sounds and musical ideas, Super-7 comes with a generous selection of 260+ factory patches, showing off the instrument's sonic potential, and creative visions from of our in-house sound design team.
An excursion into some of the most loved sounds of the '80s, Super-7 delivers both outstanding sound quality and an incredible preset library, giving you everything you need to make authentic vintage tracks in one place.
