LOST SYNTH

User interface Lost Synth Westwood

Vintage synths, reimagined

A vast collection of curated sounds, created from a revered selection of rare analogue synthesisers. From classics like the Juno 60 and Polysix to more unusual models like the Logan String Melody II and an Arp Odyssey. All re-sampled through guitar pedals and tape.

Combine and manipulate layers to make your own unique sound, and use the Memories engine to generate a sophisticated rhythmical underscore.

Lost Synth is a journey of exploration, where everything sounds enticingly unfamiliar and nothing quite like you remember.

“I’m very impressed. Lost Synth is cool, quirky, relatively compact and delivers some fabulous sound design options.

It is a brilliant source of retro, dusty synth leads, textures, pads or rhythms housed within a wonderfully creative UI. A great option for media composers or ambient/textural electronica producers.”

"Our brief was simple;
make sounds that feel like they come from a movie"

Strangely unfamiliar

Our first true out-of-house collaboration. Matt Peel and Tom Orrell from The Nave recording studio, took over the artistic reigns for this project. With Matt’s enviable collection of rare vintage synths and Tom’s highly zealous engineering brain, the two were the perfect fit to create a set of sounds made to stupefy.

From one simple brief, they spent countless hours teasing sounds from synths made in the 70s and 80s. Inlcuding the Logan String Melody II, ARP Odyssey, Polysix, Mono/Poly, MS20, Juno 60, RS-09 and a Minimoog*

Enhancing them even further by feeding them into tape delays, a stack of boutique guitar pedals and reel-to-reel.

What they’ve crafted is a collection of one-of-a-kind sublime sounds that feel strangely unfamiliar, and nothing like you’ve played before.

"I've been collecting old and unusual synths for a really long time. It's been great to explore what brand new sounds we could create with them."

All of the sounds are grouped into 5 categories, so it’s easy to find things you like.

(Or things you don’t, if that’s what you’re into.)

"We were guided by our own tastes to make brand new sounds that we would want to use in own productions and music. Everything from sounds that work great as the main focus to ones that sit perfectly as textural elements."

“I have to admit, I rolled my eyes when I heard there was yet another analogue synth library being released, but you’ve totally won me over with this!”

“The “Get Lost” feature is the most inspiring thing on any library ever. I cannot tell you how many Get Lost patches I’ve saved as presets in Lost Piano because they’re so cool. I’ve never felt more compelled to create than I do when I’m using yalls products. So incredibly well done, thank you for all of this!”

“I promised myself not to buy a synth library again. Dammit.”

Rhythmical underscore

The MEMORIES engine creates an arpeggiated underscore. Load any of the 80 sounds and transform them into a distant haze or a more upfront accompaniment. More interesting than a delay, more sophisticated than an arpeggiator.
