BeatSkillz are stuck in the 80's! Enter Retro KZ...

Have you watched TV, Netflix, and closely listened to the scores of many contemporary movies today? If yes, then you can't miss the fact the 80s/ 90s Sound is back, BIG TIME!

Retro KZ is a Virtual Instrument rompler inspired from 80's Soundtracks for Films and TV, as well as Pop Music. It features the sounds you've heard countless times from that era and always wanted but couldn’t find! Well, here they are, sampled from original 80's Synths and samplers using high-quality outboard gear for maximum fidelity.

BeatSkillz pay homage to the sounds of the great soundtracks from the 80's; from composers and tv series/movies such as, John Carpenter, Harold Faltermeyer, Jan Hammer, Michael Jackson, Prince, Knight Rider, The Terminator, Commando, etc.

Certain iconic sounds showed up in many such projects, and BeatSkillz decided to embark on the journey of bringing you the very sounds you know, sounds you can identify immediately as soon as you hear them!

BeatSkillz have sampled and tweaked these patched from original synths such as: Fairlight, Synclavier, Yamaha DX7, Roland D-50, EMULATOR II, KORG M1, OBERHEIM OBX, PROPHET 5, SYNTHEX and many more...

The sounds were recorded using analog outboard gear such as: NEVE 1073, Thermionic Culture Rooster, and Electrodyne pre's, Distressor, Api 2500 and Drawmer 1978. Also, external effects were used from Eventide and Lexicon, and hardware Eq, compression and reverbs were applied to the dry samples to re-create the original 80's vibe!
