Kid Nepro has announced a new set of patches for the the Roland “Super Jupiter” MKS80 – Vol #3 – Patch King Mix.
According to Kid Nepro’s founder and sound programmer: “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.”
The new MKS80 soundbank is filled with Synth Pads, New Analog Synths and special Effects using the MKS LFO’s. Steve adds “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 market.”
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.
