Arturia has introduced a new Modular V sound library that commemorates the 50th anniversary of Wendy Carlos‘s pioneering modular synth album, Switched-On Bach.
The patches are created by sound designer Paul Schilling, who has created previous sound libraries for Arturia, inspired by Vangelis, Tangerine Dream, Kraftwerk and others.
Here’s what Arturia has to say about the sound library:
When it was released, “Switch-On Bach” propelled the blossoming world of synthesis into the public eye. It’s no exaggeration to say that without this debut Wendy Carlos release, music as we know it simply wouldn’t sound the same.
Thanks to sound designer Paul Schilling’s synth expertise, you can now use and perform these incredible sounds for yourself. Created only using the Modular V – just as the original album used Bob Moog’s legendary modular synth, Schilling has meticulously crafted the synth string, brass, and woodwind sounds which sound as fresh today as they did in 1968.
Pricing and Availability
The Switched-On Tribute sound library is available now for US $7.99.
