u-he Retro 5

Published on Jan 20, 2018 100 Things I Do

"There have been many attempts at creating that early wood clad Poly sound.

After a years of owning one of the originals and trying many of the emulations after I sold it, nothing really did give the same sound.

There is just something very refined, almost basic but with texture to be found in the originals that until now I just have not been able to hear! The u-he Repro 5 is quite mind blowing in its depth of sound. It has life and quirks in its sound that make the software sound like an instrument. Under the hood you can control how real or how sterile you want it to run. Quite processor hungry on some patches... but thats what it takes to create close to perfect imperfection I would say :D

The clip is a mix of both presets (some of these are very impressive and useable) and a few things that I came across as I was discovering new sounds. Some slight reverb has been added because reverb! Compressor was used to keep levels *mostly* under check :D

I hope you enjoy!"
