Default Genuine 80's Synth samples

Hello,

Could anybody tell me: ''What are the best '1980's synthesiser' sample packs out there?''

(and I am talking about *THE GENUINE* synth sounds, be it: PPG Wave 2.2,
PPG Waveterm A, Oberheim OB-X, Oberheim OB-Xa, Moog Source, Moog Prodigy, Moog Minimoog, Moog Taurus 1, ARP Odyssey, SCI Pro-One, SCI Prophet VS, Roland Juno-60, Roland Juno-106, Roland SH-101, Roland Jupiter-4, Roland VP-330, Roland M-VS1, LinnDrum,Korg Polysix, Korg KR-55B, Korg MiniPops, E-MU Emax SE, Yamaha DX7 II FD, Crumar Performer, Logan String Melody II, etc. etc. you get the picture )

I wish to obtain something like this (sample-pack), because the sounds are superior (compared to *MOST* digital representations out there...)

The 'Packs' would have to be good quality (recorded in a studio) so I could key-assign them to a sampler and build up an authentic representation of a synthesiser from long ago!

I am willing to pay good money

Thanks in advance

Something like this: TheSynthFreq youtube videos. (why can't somebody go around there and get them to go to the studio - and record their synths!)

I like their videos as well it takes me back to a better place.

I have Native Instruments Retro Machines Mk 2. Sounds like the vintage analog stuff to me.

Go to the NI site and play the twelve demo tracks on the RM Mk 2 page.

50% off sale through 11/30.

You're More than Welcome

It is a great bundle for sure and after some listening back and forth that sounds really bundle awesome !! I have a few of those synths, 7 of them actually plus a Jupiter 8 the real oldie which i believe they don't use. Thinking it is a Jupiter 6 but hell, those sounds that IKM included (2000 presets) will take a while to go thru hehe

Hope you like them too
