Good news for broke bedroom producers: Starting today, Ableton, the company behind popular DAW Live 8, has just announced it will temporarily be making Puremagnetik‘s Retro Synths available as a free download. The popular partner instrument features a library of 4000 fully tweakable samples that draw from a variety of vintage sources, such as the Roland TB-303, Oberheim Matrix-6, Moog Opus 3, Minimoog, Casio CZ-1, and other classic devices. Each preset is fully integrated with Live and customizable via a series of Macro controls. All registered users of Ableton Live 8 and Suite 8 are eligible for the download, but don't dawdle, as the offer expires October 31. For more information, head over to Ableton's Retro Synths page.
