64 new patches for the MKS-80 Super Jupiter 29/03/05
Good to see that someone still supports the old favourites. Kid Nepro is one of the longest serving patch providers in the business and the new bank of Super Jupiter (MKS-80) patches has taken him back to his roots.
Steve Proto, founder of Kid Nepro says, "The MKS80 is a blast to program and I have had lot's of fun working on this soundbank. It's also very difficult to program from the front panel without the MPG80
programmer or a software editing program. I've been using MOTU's "Unisyn"
to program our sounds on our Mac G4 and it's helped me tweak the most out
of the MKS. I've also recorded several new tracks for our MP3 demos using
the new MKS sounds along with some of our Korg Karma rhythm tracks. The
blend of the analog and digital synths produces a great mix. There is
nothing like the sound of a real analog synth. That's why the MKS is
still widely sought after and commands a high price on the used synth
"We are one of, if not the only sound company still producing new sounds for vintage synthesizers. We will continue to support many instruments that have been long forgotten by all other sound companies. Just because a synthesizer
is no longer available in your local music store does not mean it is no
longer useful. Many classic tracks have been made with vintage gear. We
get calls and e-mail every day from musicians asking for support for
their vintage synths and samplers. Our other two Super Jupiter patch
collections have always been well received since we first released them
in the early 90's and we have had many requests for more MKS80 sounds. We
always try to meet our customers requests for new sounds so contact us if
your looking for anything that is not already in our catalog."
The new MKS80 soundbank is filled with Synth Pads, New Analog Synths and
Special Effects using the MKS LFO's. Steve add's
Kid Nepro knows that many keyboard players and producers would like to
have the sounds of a real vintage synth available for them to use with
their software or hardware sampler, so they have also sampled many of the
MKS sounds. They are available in WAV, Akai or Kontakt formats. It's the
closest you can get to the real thing.
MKS80 Vol #3 is available in Mac or PC sysex format and also as a
Standard Midi File that you can load into the MKS using your sequencer
program. Kid Nepro also provides a free Mac or PC sysex program that use
can use to bulk dump the sounds into the MKS80.
The new soundbank is priced at $25. or get all three MKS80 soundbanks for
the special bundle price of $60. Free e-mail delivery available within
hours of placing your order.
