Back to the 80’s is a inspiring nostalgic journey through the 80s soundscape!

Step into a time machine of sonic nostalgia with “Back to the 80s,” a 188 Patch meticulously crafted library of sounds created using the cutting-edge technology of the Vital synthesizer. If you’re a fervent admirer of the 80s era, this collection is a dream come true, capturing the essence of a decade that revolutionized music and pop culture.

There is also a Vital + Unify version  which adds 8 drum kits, TONS of 80’s drum grooves to some of the most famous Pop songs and even song templates for instant composition starting points. 279 Patches in total for $20 more in cost. If you own Unify, you’ll want this version!

This is one of the most definitive and inspiring 80’s libraries I’ve ever seen and the lovely thing is it’s based mostly on Synthesis, NOT SAMPLES so there is more flexibility and LIFE in this library than other libraries like this one.

Check out the audio demos to hear these lovely sounds in action.

Immerse yourself in the pulsating rhythms and iconic synth tones that defined the 80s. Our library is a heartfelt homage to the artists and innovators who shaped the era. Each sound has been lovingly designed to evoke the spirit of the times, drawing upon the infectious grooves and neon-drenched atmosphere that still hold a special place in our hearts.

Picture yourself cruising down a palm-lined boulevard, the sun setting on a world ablaze with neon hues. Feel the power of the drums that drove anthems like “the final countdown,” and let the soaring leads transport you back to packed arenas where legends like Michael Jackson and Madonna held court. “Back to the 80s” captures these sensations, offering a treasure trove of presets that effortlessly transport your productions into the neon-drenched landscape of the 80s.

But this isn’t just a collection of sounds – it’s a testament to our unwavering love for the 80s. Each patch is a labor of admiration, meticulously designed to honor the pop culture phenomena that continue to inspire us. It’s a celebration of the VHS era, where music and movies melded to create unforgettable moments that still resonate today.

  • Quite a Playground!

    After spending some more time with this library, I’ve gotten the urge to write some new stuff with these classic sounds.
    It’s really easy to create something contemporary with these thick patches. The challenge is staying away from 80s type trite progressions. This library has really opened up a creative flow in me.
    Thanks for the great sounds!

  • Wow! I´m back...!

    Thank you for this unbelievable time machine! I don´t know how long I will stay in the 80ies…probably a very long time. – Super programming and extraordinary sounds.

  • Essential Pro '80's library!

    Essential for all ’80’s freaks, and Vital fans! A truly Pro library by Bob Dedes, it’s truly inspiring and easy to tweak to make it your own. Nostalgia in a bun! With a brilliant bonus library for Unify too.

  • 80s Romp

    Astonishing work from Bob Dedes. His ability to recreate the 80s sounds is uncanny, and this is a deep well of very usable sounds. Synths and pads abound, and the rhythmic components are excellent. The song templates will put a smile on anyone’s face. The Vital patches sound fantastic, and are educational too. A great library.

  • Had to be done, Excellent!

    I hummed and tarred over this library, I own both Renegade and Ambient Dreams by Bob, but although from John’s walkthrough this was clearly of the highest quality, I felt it was adding little to the myriad of libraries I already own. Then I saw that Bob was soon to be married and that pushed me over the edge – of course I need it and am delighted with the expertise within. Have already used this extensively on 2 tracks. Thanks Bob & John for the quality and inspiration!

  • Awesomeness de luxe

    In fact you can only find great libraries here. But this one is a special kind of awesome. Don’t know if it’s the sound of my childhood, that makes me smile from the very first second. or if it’s the versatility of sound design in both Vital and Unify. No matter what it is, it’s like peanut butter jelly! Best 80ies workbench I’ve seen so far. Kudos to Bob! Chapeau deluxe!

  • So much fun and such great sounds

    Bob Dedes has done stellar work here. I bought the library within hours of it going live and I’ve already written a great, fun track using these sounds. They are production ready and sound so good in the mix. It also inspired me to get the PRO version of Vital as that synth is now firmly on my radar. I’m so impressed with the sounds it is capable of. The UNIFY version is essential as the drum sounds and bonuses are fabulous. Can’t recommend this highly enough.

  • Captured the musical DNA of the 80's brilliantly

    Bob Deeds has brilliantly captured the musical DNA of the 1980’s. The patches, the drums and settings provide instantly recognisable sounds of that classic era. The 1980’s was my era, and these patches take me right back.
    These are patches like nothing else on Unify and would recommend getting the Vital + Unify version. Set up was easy once I found the Vital VST2 file and added it to Unify.
    If you were around in the 1980’S get it and travel down memory lane. If you were not around in the 1980’s, get it and discover why people in the 1980’s had so much fun! Well done Bob, great work.

  • Unify Version. In Trevor Horn Style

    The perfect education Iibary to complete my Trevor Horn style training. A masterpiece that demonstrates the potential of Vital and Unify.

    I was fast enough to be the first?
