Our longtime partner Audio Plugin Deals is offering the Memory-V Synthesizer instrument for IK Multimedia’s SampleTank and Syntronik as a free download. It’s based sampled sounds (5 GB) of the classic 18-oscillator Memorymoog analog polysynth and comes with 148 presets and 4 multis.
Even if you do not have a complete Syntronik or SampleTank version, you can use Memory-V. Just download the free version of Syntronik Free and you’re off. The review of Syntronik is available here!
Manufactured from 1981 to 1985, it’s often described as six Minimoogs in one unit! Its timbral palette is nothing short of impressive, capable of producing a huge variety of sounds including strings, brasses, pads, flutes as well as more percussive sounds.
The Memorymoog has earned the reputation of being one of the fattest-sounding analog polyphonic synthesizers ever made – and rightly so – but also of being somewhat unreliable and prone to damage. While, for most musicians, owning one is a fantasy – second-hand units can command a five-figure sum – the high price of maintenance is also a concern to most synth aficionados.
IK Multimedia wanted to truly immortalize this gem’s analog soul once and for all, so everyone could take advantage of its unmistakable sonic power. They sourced a pristine unit, recorded the single oscillators, innovative combinations of multiple oscillators, along with unison stacks, pulse width modulation, and synched oscillators plus some classic full patches to bring this legendary beast to life once more.
The regular price of Memory V is $49.99 USD but it’s available for free until March 7th, 2019!
