'Projektor: Zebra 2.5' is a preset collection for U-He Zebra 2.5 soft synthesizer created by Jeff Rhodes of Perimeter Sound. This soundset features 118 Brand New Original Patches. Also included is 1 variation of each preset for 236 patches all total.
Projektor features 118 Brand new original patches each with :
• A unique arpeggiator setting
• Modwheel settings
• All 4 X/Y pad settings
• And most with customized waveforms (Also included is 1 variation of each preset for 236 patches all total)
• 32 Zebrify effect patches are included as a bonus.
Ambient/cinematic styles are covered, with a heavy dose of Drone and Pad patches. While the arp preset variations aim to satisfy the more uptempo producers - be they scoring an action scene, or working on their latest dance track and looking for something with the right vibe to it.
As you would expect, all the patches are tagged with their main category : Bass - Drone - Lead - Pad - Synth. So you can spend your time making music, not looking for the right kind of sound.
Check out the mp3 demos for some examples of how these presets might be used in your music. And if you have purchased any of the 'Dance Glitch' loop sample series, released through Producer Loops in 2010 and 2011, then you have heard a few of these patches in action.
I really didn't think I'd end up making so many patches for the Zebra softsynth, but there have just been so many avenues to explore. Hopefully with the release of Z3 in 2012 or 2013, even more options will be available, and we may very well meet again.
Until then, please feel to grab the freebee pack and hear a few of these latest patches for yourself. There are no demo limitations or restrictions on the free patches, they are provided so you can try before you buy, and they are yours to keep and use whether you choose to purchase the full collection or not.
Special thanks to:
Horatiu-Cristian Petrila for the 1st demo, featuring about a dozen patches from the Projektor collection, as well as some loops from the Perimeter Sound Bio-Mechanic Beats & Abstract World Fusion loop sample sets. This tracks features several small sections/movements, and shows off a bit of the lighter more ambient, or even mellow side of Projektor.
And special thanks to Torben Hansen for his demo, featuring several synth/pad and bass patches and even some of the included arppegiator patches from Projektor. As well as creating all the percussion backing and sound fx/transitions using loop samples and one-shots from the Perimeter Sound 'Darc Skreen' FX & One Shots collection. Torben cuts loose with a pretty heavy bit of riffing and mixing here, yet still finds room for some of the Projektor pads, and even fits in some of the arp patches.
And lastly, a big thanks to local photographer Lance Roethle, for letting me use his beautiful Montana sunset picture for the cover graphic of Projektor.
