Synergy is a stunning Repro soundbank for both versions of u-he`s Repro-1 & Repro-5, containing 370 patches by Aiyn Zahev Sounds.
This bank takes advantage of the deep analog modeling and the rich effect selection to deliver both raw analog sounds as well as spacious, production-polished sounds and sequences.
The Synergy Repro soundbank will be an ideal tool-box for composers of any genre making use of synths, but will especially lend itself to Retro, EDM, and synth-heavy cinematic/game scores.
The Repro-1 presets focus more on sequences, basses and makes use of the wave folder. There are a number of bass sequences and even sub-bass sequences. These are typically dark or gritty with a nod to techno. Ideal for creating tension. The melodic sequences tend to be moody and cerebral. All the sequence sounds are also broken out into individual non-sequenced presets too, with modifications to make them suitable as sounds of their own.
The Repro-5 presets cover pads, huge unison basses, plucks, atmospheres, and single note pads. The bank has an overall feeling of being modern, yet vintage inspired. It’s warm and organic at times and punchy and clear at others.
Distortion is used to create a more aggressive, alive analog tone, or to introduce a subtle warmth. The velvet effect is used extensively to add tape compression, making patches punch more and cut through a mix.
The effects settings were set carefully for each preset, either to provide subtle enhancement, or to transform the core sound completely, or off when the sound suits are completely dry.

Artist & Press Reviews
It’s great to be reviewing another sound bank from Aiyn Zahev Sounds (courtesy of Resonance Sound) for this issue of SoundBytes. Synergy is a monster sound bank for both Repro-1 and Repro-5 software synths. This bank can be used by producers and composers alike for creating techno, synthwave, electronica and synth heavy cinematic film/TV/game music. Synergy is split into two folders of Repro-1 and Repro-5. Since Repro-1 is monophonic, the 180 presets focus more on sequences and basses. I would say that the basses are warm and fat. The sequences are very gritty and energetic – making them ideal for creating techno. The Repro-5 presets cover pads, plucks, atmospheres and layered sounds. The pads and atmospheres really sound huge and warm. The synth leads and plucks are punchy and can cut through a mix. Each preset has modwheel and velocity assignments, and are tagged in Repro’s excellent browser. There are also 59 MIDI files (of sequences) and Ableton Project included in the pack. […] With all of that being said, this is another excellent bank by Aiyn Zahev Sounds.
