They’ve also dropped these into a bespoke Ableton session to make things even easier.
Point Blank x Ensoniq SQ 80
Back in March, our Head of Curriculum, Ski Oakenfull, treated us to a slick deconstruction of ADAMSKI’s iconic hit track, ‘Killer’ ft. Seal. During the deconstruction, Ski used a number of gorgeous sounds inspired by the retro Ensoniq SQ 80 synth which features heavily in ADAMSKI’s 90s hit. Now we have compiled those magical synth sounds into an Ableton Live pack which will help you create your own killer track.
