Classic 80’s & Synthwave Instruments for Kontakt
Power Move was created with one goal in mind: to re-create that warm, vintage, retro futuristic sound we remember from the 80’s (nowadays called “Synthwave“).
The entire library has a distinct analog sound and feel and every patch you play instantly transports you back in time.
The inspiration for this library was drawn from multiple sources in both Synthwave and 80’s styles including modern films like Drive, Stranger Things, The Guest and Kung Fury to classics like Big Trouble in Little China, Knightrider and Bladerunner.
We also were influenced by the work of Synthwave artists including Futurecop!, Gunship, Perturbator, Miami Nights 1984 to 80’s composers & producers such as John Carpenter, Vangelis, Depeche Mode and more!
With pulsing arpeggios, crystalised keys, warm pads, classic drums and so much more, the library is guaranteed to inspire, while being so much fun to play!
Demo track created with 98% “Power Move”
2GB of Retro Drums, Bass, Keys, Pads, Leads & More!
Power Move contains over 2,000 samples delicately re-created to reproduce that classic sound. Included in the library are a range of 187 presets and 36 multis including:
Unlock the cheese and relive the music from the best musical decade ever with Power Move for Kontakt!
Built in Arpeggiator For Those Classic 80’s Arps!
Arpeggiated patterns are one of the main staples of Synthwave and Retro tracks. Whether at the forefront of the track, or sitting in the background of it, arpeggios creates a sense of driving and rhythm common to the style.
Every patch in Power Move has a simple arpeggiator built into the GUI so you can easily just load up any instrument, turn on the “Arp”, select your mode (eg. “Up & Down” etc.) and Rate (eg. 1/16) to go straight back to the future!
The arpeggiator in Power Move has 3 simple settings for ease of use:
- On / Off
- Mode (16 different settings)
- Rate (18 different settings)
Load up a Lead, flick on the Arp, hold a chord and prepare to unlock the cheese!

Julian – :
so much versatility with the ability to change the parameters. presets sound great without having to change much. definitely worth it for that 80’s vibe
Stefano – :
Power Move is the 80’s sound. Many useful great presets taking you back to the best decade of music.
Chris – :
Surprisingly good sound from this instrument given that it’s sample based. Suits not only synthwave but I’d say it can sound great in many genres. Used my reward points to further sweeten the deal!
