Anthology 1 by Plughugger – 80s Analog Synths for Omnisphere

Anthology 1 is the first release in a new series of sounds where Plughugger is focusing on the sound of classic synthesizers. For the first release, Plughugger drew their inspiration of four of the biggest analog synthesizer giants on the planet: the Roland Jupiter 8, Oberheim OB8, Yamaha CS80, and the Prophet 5. Anthology 1 is a soundset for Spectrasonics Omnisphere 2. This product requires a fully working copy of Omnisphere 2 to work. This is not a sample set.

The concept during the design was to keep true to the heritage of the synthesizers, in terms in typical sounds and effects used.

All sounds were based on the internal library of sampled synth sounds in Omnisphere. But to bring out a different flavor of the sounds Plughugger remixed a portion of Plughugger’s favorite sounds using the oscillators from the internal synth engine – such as wavetables – creating synth sounds with a more edgy and modern touch to them.

Together with the single sounds Plughugger also created 50 multi sounds where Plughugger has stacked many layers to create fatter and more complex leads, bass sounds, pads, and sequences.

Anthology 1 contains 265 sounds

  • 49 Arpeggios & Rhythmic sounds
  • 57 Synth bass
  • 52 Pads and Synth strings
  • 57 Synths
  • 50 Multi patches


The introduction price of Anthology 1 is €9.90 / 60% OFF the normal price €24.90, this price is valid until May, 17th, 2020. Use coupon code WELOVEANALOGS to get the discount.

75% Off Lumos by Plughugger for Omnisphere 2

Lumos by Plughugger

Lumos is an ambient orchestra of sounds based on nothing else but the sounds of lamps. From mellow 40 watt lightbulbs all the way up to illuminating 200 watt.

When Spectrasonics created the Psychoacoustic section of samples in Omnisphere they didn’t hold back burning up a piano just to hear how that might sound or the glassy sound of tungsten lightbulbs being hit with different intensities.

Equipped with the sound of a handful of lamps, our goal was to explore these sounds by turning them into sequences, textures / soundscapes, synth(ish) leads and pads.

Plughugger’s Aperture – Analog Ambient for u-he Diva

Aperture – Analog Ambient for u-he Diva

Aperture is a collection of sounds inspired by ambient productions by Aphex Twin from the 80s and 90s. The main design goal of the sounds is to combine analog depth and warmth, with pitch imperfections, lush reverbs and organic modulation.

Plughugger's Aperture - Analog Ambient for u-he Diva 47

The main focus of the soundset lies with pads, soundscapes and soft melodic leads, oddly tuned bells, a handful of arpeggios, analog style effects sounds and some mellow drums and percussion.

The soundset is divided into two parts. The first part contains the main section of the sounds, designed using all synthesis options available in Diva. The second part is called “Fundamentals” and is a collection of sounds stripped back to their bare minimum with one or two oscillators and usually just one effect. This section is more basic and was designed to be more typical ambient bread and butter sounds. We also chose to make the sounds in the “Fundamentals” to be less CPU intensive.

Aperture Includes

Aperture Main Sounds (110 sounds)

  • 3 Arpeggios
  • 7 Bass sounds
  • 12 Drum and percussion sounds
  • 12 Hits and effects
  • 31 Synth and lead sounds
  • 30 Pads and synth strings
  • 15 Textures and soundscapes

Aperture Fundamentals  (50 sounds)

  • 5 Arpeggios
  • 6 Drum and percussion sounds
  • 4 Hits and effects
  • 17 Synth and lead sounds
  • 11 Pads and synth strings
  • 7 Textures and soundscapes

Audio files (18 sounds)

  • 18 Unprocessed drum sounds

All audio files are 24 bit/44 kHz mono. All sounds are properly tagged making finding sounds easy (both in Diva as well as in Native Instruments NKS format). 


Pricing and Availability

Aperture is available for €9.90 / 50% OFF currently. This special price is offered by Plughugger until, September, 13th 2020. The normal price is €19.90. Use coupon code RHUBARB to get the discount.

Nanopolarity an Arturia Pigments 2 Soundset by Plughugger

Nanopolarity an Arturia Pigments 2 Soundset

Nanopolarity is a collection of cinematic soundscapes for Arturia Pigments 2. The core of the sounds is based on 250MB of sampled sounds from the Access Virus TI hardware synthesizer and is aimed for productions of film and TV, as well as contemporary music genres where a simple pad just doesn’t cut it.

The Arturia Pigments is a fantastic synthesizer and Plughugger would like to work more on it and create more synth-centric sounds for it. Nanopolarity was my first real work with it and is based on soundscapes, textures, and synthetic hits recorded from a Virus TI. It’s an excellent soundset and you can listen to the demos here. Producer Brian Brylow was kind enough to provide me with an atmospheric Pink Floyd-ish demo for it and Plughugger absolutely recommends you to take a listen to it.

Nanopolarity an Arturia Pigments 2 Soundset by Plughugger 52

Nanopolarity is our first soundset for the Arturia Pigments, and the combination of Arturia Pigments and Virus TI is a match made in heaven. With its vast synthesis capabilities, the Virus is the perfect source to further sculpt the raw samples into completely new sounds. We used the granular engine as well as the Shaper Mode (unison, resonators, chords etc) and made good use of the excellent modulation capabilities in Pigments.

Apart from pads and soundscapes, we also added a handful of percussive sounds from the Virus, as the foundation of synthetic-cinematic hits and boomers.

Nanopolarity contains 174 new sounds:

  • 163 Textures / Soundscapes
  • 11 Drum / Percussion

Pricing and Availability

Until the 12th of July, 2020 you can buy Nanopolarity for 9.90 Euro. Use coupon code NANOPIGMENTS to get the discount. ​The normal price is 19.90 euros.
