Resident sound designer Adam Pietruszko embraces retro-futurism with Synth City—a collection of 100 presets amalgamating the nostalgia of the 1980s’ vibe with Chromaphone 2’s modern twist. Plunge into synthwave and retrowave territory all the way through futuresynth, darksynth, outrun, retro-electro, nu disco, and synth-pop with this lavish sound pack. Capturing the aesthetic of VHS B movies’ music, Synth City excels at synthesizer melodies straight out of science fiction, cyberpunk, horror, and action film soundtracks.
