    For its latest sound pack, Mind Flux has multi-sampled sounds from the Roland Juno 6, SH-101 & 303, Moog Voyager and Minitaur, Access Virus and various modular synths and packaged them up as 67 Simpler presets for Ableton Live.

    The synths have been recorded through a range of Neve and SSL outboard gear plus various guitar pedals to give a warm and edgy sound, and contain a mix of bass, lead, pad, chord and effects sounds. Each preset is packaged in a Rack with variations on eight well-programmed Macros meaning you can quickly transform them into something new.


    From the throbbing basses to the atmospheric, dissonant rave chords, all the patches are expertly programmed and club-ready. There’s plenty of usable content here, and we found flicking through and tweaking the presets highly inspiring.
