Sounds of Soul

Exclusive to Steinberg’s acclaimed Retrologue VST synthesizer, Sounds of Soul takes you on a musical journey through four decades of synth sounds and their remarkable impact on modern music. With over 400 presets, this expansive anthology explores the charged, raw power of soul, disco and funk from the 1970s, the mega-selling R’n’B influenced pop of the 1980s before recreating signature sounds from the newer urban music styles that developed in the 1990s and 2000s. Crafted by expert sound designers, many of the landmark sounds contained here will be instantly recognizable from hits by legendary artists and producers.

  • Over 400 new presets with outstanding sounds created by Yamaha sound designer Dave Polich
  • Leads, bass, pads and FX designed on the most famous soulful synth sounds of the ’70s, ’80s, ’90s and 2000s
  • Exclusively available as download
