Alexander Hacke's New York City

Alexander Hacke's New York CityAlexander Hacke has released a sound-set for Urs Heckmanns virtual synthesizer - software Zebra which is called "New York City" and consists of 150 sounds dedicated to the big apple and divided in the five boroughs.

The sounds range from weird one shot effects to slow evolving cinematic soundscapes and complete multi layered backing tracks.

The sound set is a 100% copyright free collection of individually programmed artistic patches which can used for film-scores, industrial music, electro dance beats and general experimentation.

They provide an ideal starting point to dive into the complex world of Zebra.

Caution, you must own the software synthesizer in order to work with the sound set.
