The Packs are made up of a collection of Patches that have been made for a precise purpose.
The goal is to make a universal, enjoyable work, easy to understand and simple to use by the customer.

Package

Contents

The Packs are made of:

  • THE FILE to load into the Synthesizer
  • THE DESCRIPTION of the collection
  • THE COVER IMAGE for that pack
  • THE COPYRIGHT documentation
  • THE PATCHES LIST for that collection
  • The HOW TO LOAD description

The file

The file must be simple and easy to load. If the files need to be created separately, they must be compressed into a ZIP File. The name of the file must not be or contain any copyright covered Artist name.

Example:

KORG KRONOS PF COVER PACK
(A collection of patches inspired by the sounds used by Pink Floyd, made for the Korg Kronos Synthesizer)

The name of the single patch must contain part of the collection's name.

Example:

  1. PF Shine on pad
  2. PF Shine hammond
and so on....

The description

  • The title of the pack
  • The name of the author
  • A short introduction
  • The patches List
  • The link to the youtube and/or soundcloud demo

Our philosophy

The created pack must be named in accord to a specific Band, Musical style or anything that can be easily Grouped.
We will NOT accept anything personal that says "My Sounds Pack" file or anything similar.

The most common types of packs are:

  • Synth category packs - Ex: Lead Pack (Basic Synth Leads pack)
  • Cover Band Packs - Ex: PF Collection (Inspired by Pink Floyd Sounds)
  • Thematic Packs - Ex: Ultimate Leads (A huge collection of famous leads)
