In partnership with Samplephonics, Finishing Move Inc. is proud to announce our very first commercially available sound library for Native Instruments’ FM8 Synthesizer, FM8 Nouveau 80s.
Here is the description (watch our walkthrough video below):
Jump in your De Lorean and travel back to the era of excess. FM8 Nouveau Eighties contains an eclectic collection of 80′s inspired presets for Native Instruments’ FM8 synth, created by the renowned production and sound design team Finishing Move. Their attention to detail is impeccable, and the range of sounds, textures and timbres takes FM8 programming to a whole new level.
This preset library was been inspired by gritty synth infused sounds from the 80′s, like those used by Cliff Martinez to create the Drive soundtrack and the cinematic sounds of Vangelis in Bladerunner and Chariots of Fire. The library also incorporates a modern twist on the retro genre, with sounds inspired by artists like Chvrches, M83, Kavinsky, College, Boards of Canada and Charli XCX, and can be adapted to suit almost any style of music, from light synth pop, to dark electronic, to epic and cinematic scores.
The pack contains a total of 120 presets for FM8 version 1.2 or higher. Each sound has been tagged and categorized for easy loading of the library, and many take advantage of the mod wheel and FM8s powerful morph-square, adding endless variations to the already lush palate of textures and timbres. All sounds are 100% royalty free and ready to download and use in your productions instantly.

I have a new course up over at Lynda.com! Producing Music for Advertisements is a workflow oriented course with tons of insight into the entire commercial composition process, from understanding a creative brief and “what the client really wants,” to delivering finished assets and knowing your publishing and licensing rights as a composer. Hope you enjoy it!
Help your client achieve the music that matches the vision for their brand. This real-world project course shows how to assess an assignment, break down a creative brief, and decipher client expectations to create a compelling musical score for advertisements. Producer Brian Lee White shows you how to shape a score around picture and create a memorable theme for the client’s brand. You’ll also learn how to address the revision cycle with a client, adopting smart strategies to deliver excellent work on time and on budget. When you’re ready to deliver the music track, learn how to print the final assets for delivery. Finally, Brian helps you understand the importance of a scope of work agreement and various licensing and publishing rights you may be entitled to as a composer.
