You Know 6 - affordable NI Kontakt 80s Polysynth

Just before Christmas, Hollow Sun released "You Know 6" - a homage to the famous 80s polysynth (guess, which one ;) ). It's a very affordable (currently during Christmas promotion it costs 2 UK pounds) NI Kontakt synth, which comes with 40 presets (467 mb zipped). Features ? "Firstly, it has a DETUNE control so that the waveforms can be detuned for a thicker sound that can rival the more serious two oscillator polysynths. It also has a multiwave LFO (compared with the original's triangle wave only), a 12/24dB/OCtave switch on the filter and perhaps, most importantly, has two ADSR envelopes, a vast improvement over the original's one envelope.

Not just that but we've sampled two banks of waveforms - one with the original's gorgeously crusty, analogue bucket brigade chorus in all its rich, stereo and swirly wondrousness but also the raw waveforms so that you have the best of both worlds. The chorused bank allows some truly massive sounds to be created, especially with the detune control.

Grab this Christmas bargain, if you want to. I couldn't resist :)

ps. Of course, this synth requires NI Kontakt (Full, not Player) min. 4.2.4.
