Ah... the 80s. Pink, Spandex and hairy rockers singing about sweet tender love while biting off heads of chickens.
And, of course, the unmistakable sound of plastic. One of the synthesizers that really captures the essence of the 80s is the Casio CZ series, and one of the few software synthesizers that successfully captures the essence of that sound is the reFX PlastiCZ. It's been around for quite some time now, but it's a synthesizer with an unique sound and an architecture that makes sound design very intuitive. The sound can best be described as thin, innocent and naive.
When the 80s New Wave is topping the charts like ever before PlastiCZ is the ultimate weapon for the definite plunkyness. Expect a revival.
It's cool. It's naive. It's plastic.
IT'S BAKELITE! is a soundset of 128 mixed patches that expands greatly from the original presets. While the included sounds tried to emulate classical sounds such as Moog and the TB-303 - this soundset is an exploration of the true rubbery insides of PlastiCZ. IT'S BAKELITE! is mainly concentrated around bass sounds and leads. You will not find any soft swirling pads in here. Although there are a few, they are more in the direction of disturbing atmospheres.
Due to its character, this soundset is also useful for remixing.
BONUS! IT'S BAKELITE! now comes with the bonus soundset Brutal Conditions, a soundset of 128 presets that explores the darker side of PlastiCZ. Brutal Conditions are delivered with every purchase of IT'S BAKELITE!
There are no treatment on the bass sounds except a limiter with a very modest setting on the master buss. No effects or eq:ing have been applied to the sounds.
