Program 24 brings you the pure sound of ’80s Italo Disco inspired by two wild synths nearly lost to time, the Solton Programmer 24 and SM100. The Programmer 24 is an unassuming 3-octave keyboard released in 1985, it contained everything necessary to produce complete arrangements, and real time performance features perfect for backing up the band. It sported a full 8-bit PCM drum section, analog bass and lead arpeggio with analog filters, violin, cello, and 3 flute voices (8′, 4′, 2′), a featured arranger, chord and pattern sequencers. To top it off, it had individual outputs for 8 drum parts and bass, full MIDI, and a tape interface for storage.
What really caught our attention with this little beast was the sound. Right out of the box it just sounds good, packed with an ’80s character we simply adore. The drums are clean and punchy, the bass and arpeggio pack vintage funk, and all the voices work together to create a full and truly classic sound.
The SM100 is another cool analog synth, with DCOs and a phenomenal chorus/ensemble effect. We multisampled every sound allowing you to engage the chorus effect just like you would on the real thing. All-in-all these two fantastic machines deliver tons of flavor and great sounding voices ready to lay down the groove for a new generation.
Program 24 delivers sounds and arrangements from a special period of time, and new and unique ones inspired by these machines. We captured every drum sound (and some extras from mythical machines like the DMX, Linn, 8o8 and more), along with the full range of each analog voice, MIDI drum patterns, classic and chord follower arpeggiators, and discrete preset recall for each sound. Numerous included multi kits, single sound presets, arpeggiators, drums kits and drums MIDI files deliver both pure vintage and all-new sounds and patterns designed by our team, giving you a huge variety of both classic ’80s sounds and contemporary patch designs.
For those looking for the complete package the included multi instrument offers a fully-loaded and fully-programmable workstation allowing you to program complete arrangements with your DAW, using all the hardware voices together. For added convenience and sound sculpting potential we’ve included 2 reverb sends and 2 delay sends that can be fed by any of the drum or instrument voices, along with per-instrument multimode filters, drive, phasor, and EQ. Finally, 2-bus effects including drive, compressor and EQ help you add punch and polish to the mix without leaving the UI.
As well, we’ve made each of the instrument sections available separately, allowing you to call up only the drums, bass, strings and organs, or accompaniment voices as you need them. Each individual instrument is identical to its multi counterpart, offering the same effect section, sends and presets. A terrific way to focus on sound design, or simply add one or two layers to your production.
