These instruments were created to score a “Twin Peaks inspired” theatrical drama that never was.
The guitar sound it’s made with my Fender Telecaster, Boss Tremolo and Bias FX amp.
The DX7 style instruments are custom-made patches from a Yamaha TX81z through an SPX90.
The MKS20 inspired brass and the strings are made with the PG8X MLVST through the SPX90 as well.
A lot of effort went to recreate as close as possible the original sounds of Twin Peaks’ main theme, carefully selecting instruments and effects and programming the synths.
I hope you like it.
The package contains 8 different instruments:
TP Guitar (divided into two sections: between B0 and C3 the guitar is multi-sampled. From A3 to C6 it’s one sample stretched – more faithful to the original sampling method used by Badalamenti)
TP DX7 Bass
TP DX7 Epiano
TP MKS20 Brass
TP MKS20 Sub
TP Strings 1
TP Strings 2
TP Strings MW (the mod-wheel at 0 allows playing only the strings 1 sound. Increasing the mod wheel value will introduce and add the strings 2)
– Made with Kontakt 6.5.2 (R113) –

Great and usable throwback sounds!
There are some great throwback synth and guitar sounds in this library. They are very playable, and fit into mixes really nicely. They're generally well recorded with minimal noise. I'm sure these will find their way into many mixes because of their flexibility!
Julian's best work...
This is, in my opinion, Julian's best sample library. I really like the variety of patches included and the electric piano was particularly enjoyable to use. It sounds like there might be a little noise in some of the samples, but it's not beyond what a little clever eq-ing won't fix. this library is a useful and comprehensive toolkit of various synthesized instruments with a hint of the 70s and 80s. Definitely worth a download! Great work!
Versatile synth instrument
I like the DX7 bass sound! It can be used as a sub sonic bass. Very simple and easy to use synth.
Beyond the Twin Peaks
When it comes to creating a tribute instrument, it takes a lot of effort to replicate what you listen to. You can't be fully objective - at some point your character will jump in and will probably take over. You will find 8 different patches, but I'm mostly impressed by the Guitar patch and how the artist decided to create it. It gives me a fresh new look, and most importantly, it makes me more creative. There is some kind of noise though over some samples, for example in lower samples of the Strings 1 patch. The pan in that patch is also mostly panned left by default, but you can reset it easily. In general, this is a very nice bunch of instruments that will likely make you more creative.
Not just a Twin Peaks tribute...
A very charismatic library... in fact, not just a library, but a collection of instruments inspired by the Twin Peaks soundtrack. A great addition to any sample collection, it gives instant inspiration, although admittedly, it will take you in a given direction. The synth strings and the guitar are especially well rendered.
I have no idea where this will lead us...
...but I have a definite feeling it will be a place both wonderful and strange The background that is included in the description is perfect, although I'm confident I would have picked up the Twin Peaks vibe in any case. The TP Strings 1 and Brass instruments really jumped out. I have a Twin Peaks inspired track that I now want to revisit / remix to incorporate this library.
