Featuring sounds from all 21 faithfully modeled vintage keyboards, combining awe-inspiring sound with exceptional ease of use and awesome features.
Analog Lab is clearly a bargain even with 40 presets less and also great for finding sounds if you have the V Collection. But it adds latency compared to the full instruments (about 0.7 ms tested and measured)… not that it’s obvious but it is a wrapper and probably meant more as a demo

All our commercial plugins come in two versions, a completely free standard edition, and an enhanced “Gentleman’s Edition”.
We do this in contrast to the traditional model relying on a full edition and a strongly restricted demo version. This approach has several advantages, both for the end-user and our development process. The most apparent is the fact that it enables us to offer the standard edition for free, which in turn helps us to promote and test the plugin effectively and efficiently. On the other hand, the end-user can evaluate the plugin with all the time he needs, and if interested, acquire the “Gentleman’s Edition” at relatively low cost.
The main disadvantage is that there’s no way to demo the additional features introduced by the given “Gentleman’s Edition”. But we’re hoping that quality of the free, standard editions give you sufficient confidence to consider a purchase! 🙂
To be clear, the Gentleman’s Edition is not meant to discriminate women (see gentleman’s agreement, gentleman scientist and so on).
License transfers are possible, but require to sell your dongle together with your product (or an empty dongle, where the license you want to sell has been moved onto by simple drag & drop in the elicenser control center). Licenses can not be moved online, the dongle has to be physically on the computer for license transfer. If the new owner wants to receive future updates or technical support for his product(s), you need to purchase a license transfer from us, so the new owner will be listed in our database. Please contact Nicole “at” Vengeance-Sound.com. There you will get a link for purchase and further infos. Please note, that you only can sell hardware Dongle protected plugins, no 100% digital products, such as samplepacks or soundsets!
No. Vengeance Sound does not sell Nexus directly, please visit www.refx.com for that. They ship worldwide, offer attractive bundles and some discounts as well.
Please make sure first that your synthesizer or plugin works properly, as we take great care to fully test all our soundsets for functionality and compatibility. In case you still don’t succeed you may send us an email. An even quicker way to get helpful advice might be the official support forum (vengeance-forum.com). Please provide your date of purchase and your email address when asking for technical support.
No we are sorry. Vengeance Sound does not program single sounds due to the lack of time. However, you may send us the desired sound so we can consider adding it to the next soundset or sample pack.
Yes. You will automatically receive 10% discount in case you buy more than 1 soundset or sample pack. Just choose one of the -10% items from your shopping cart page. There is a samplepack complete bundle, too. Contact us for details.
No. All melodies used in Vengeance Sound audiodemos are copyrighted. Therefore you may not use them in any way for your own purposes like learning or even a release. Abuse is prohibited and will be legally pursued.
No. Vengeance Sound pays attention to many important aspects, and this is one of them: all samples are delivered in the popular WAV format (16-bit, 44.1 kHz) – so you can use it in almost every common sampler as well as just drag it to an audio track in your sequencer. However, good samplers might offer you even more creative, sonic possibilities.
What is important to know about the software copy protection Vengeance Sound products (plugins only) use?
All software products of Vengeance Sound use the eLicenser/USB dongle system. This requires 1 free USB port on your computer and the USB dongle itself. The dongle is not included in any of the Vengeance Sound products and needs to be purchased separately (see for example the multilingual store of www.thomann.de). Each USB dongle can hold many licenses (e. g. Vengeance Sound, Steinberg Cubase etc.), so you only need to purchase the key once and can use it for all Vengeance Sound products. You may install single-license software on several computers as only a valid USB dongle license enables software use on one of the computers at the same time.
Choose from our range of products by browsing “soundsets”, “samples” etc. via the menu bar. Every product available has a detailed description, audiosamples and a “buy” button. Your decision made, all you have to do is follow the clear and easy payment instructions. You may need a credit card, a valid bank account or paypal to complete your order. Furthermore, we recommend a fast internet connection since e. g. sample packs are easily more than 500 MB in size.

R&S Records is an independent record label founded in 1984 in Ghent, Belgium. R&S represents the initials of Renaat Vandepapeliere and Sabine Maes, the couple that created the label. The label was first named as Milos Music Belgium but just one record was released on the label.
Somatic Records is an up and coming London Label that has mastered the art of fusing Progressive & Melodic feelings together with subtle Techno elements’ – Change Underground Magazine. A label birthed little over a year ago our sound & vision has grown exponentially.
Mastering can do a lot for your song but it really can’t fix it. This has to do with several factors. For starters, a mastering engineer deals with a track on macro levels. It can not effectively fix issues on a micro level. As you can probably imagine, mastering can’t add delays to just your vocal track. Despite the skills and experience of a mastering engineer, getting a good result naturally also depends on the material they have to work with.
For those who have never heard of LANDR before, we’ll explain. It’s basically an online, automated mastering service. So, it doesn’t use human beings on the back end and it’s driven by an algorithm. You simply upload your tracks to this service and it automatically masters them. Then it allows you to download them instantly. Although it works okay, the system can never replace a real professional mastering engineer like audiobyray.com.
The first spot is taken bij Abbey Road Studios, which is of course one of the world’s most iconic (mastering) studios. Runner-up is BandLab, which has become popular among indie musicians and artist. The third place goes out to Landr, a completely online and on algorithm based mastering platform. Fourth is Cloudbound, a mastering tool that is available 24/7. On the fifth spot we find Metropolis Studios and last but not least is eMastered. But of course, you can always choose for personal contact with a professional mastering engineer like audiobyray.com.
Not everyone thinks the same on the matter of whether or not sending music into a professional mastering studio is a necessity. If the mix doesn’t need any modifying, this means that it is at a perfect volume level, the fades are well done, the EQ is consistent throughout, the compression is right on, and so on. In that case there’s no need for mastering. If these basics are not covered, audiobyray mastering can help you out.
Mastering is the final step of audio post-production. The purpose of audio mastering is to balance sonic elements of a stereo mix. Mastering helps to optimize playback across all systems and media formats. Traditionally, mastering uses several tools like equalization, limiting, compression and stereo enhancement. Audiobyray.com is a specialist in all of the above.

Worldwide, most label contracts include a specific rule. They don’t actually allow their artists to be signed to multiple labels at once. However, there are ways to circumvent this. Through either loopholes in those contracts or by gaining permission from the labels, on rare occasions artists may be able to release certain records (sometimes limited to “non-albums”, ie. EPs, singles, mixtapes, etc.) on other record labels. Always keep this in mind when you sign a contract with a record label.
In the music industry, a 360 deal (from 360° deal) is a business relationship between an artist and a music industry company. The music industry company will actively try to develop new opportunities for the artist. They will function as a pseudo-manager. In return, according to the 360 deal, the artist agrees to give the company a percentage of an increased number of their revenue streams. In a 360 deal this often includes a percentage of sales of recorded music worldwide, live performances, royalties, publishing and more. Costs for packaging, budget records and other costs might be deducted from the artist’s royalties as well.
When an artist signs a deal with a label, they should see themselves as an investment of the record label. Artists don’t get paid if they are with a record label. The record label lends them money that is to be paid back if/when the artist makes it. Suppose that a music label gives a band a $250,000 advance to record an album. The label agrees to do so in return for 90% of the sales. This percentage can vary from label to label and from artist to artist.
In most cases, when signing with a “major” record label, the label will offer the artist a large cash advance. This can be used for anything and everything in the artist’s music career. Keep in mind though, that every dime the record label invests in the artist, they expect to get back. If the music label never recoups what they’ve invested in the artist, the artist will never see any of the royalties that their music generated. All of that advanced money must first be paid back to the record label.
There are thousands of record labels in the world, but only a few of them define the music market. Their major function is to take care of the copyright of sound and video recordings. These days there are four ruling record labels. Nielsen SoundScan in their 2011 report noted that the “big 4” controlled almost 88% of the market:
- Universal Music Group (USA based) — 29.85%
- Sony Music Entertainment (USA based) — 29.29%
- Warner Music Group (USA based) — 19.13%
- Independent labels — 12.11%
EMI used to be one of the big record labels, but got surpassed by Universal Music in 2012. Some other major record labels are Island Records, BMG and Virgin Records.
The days, record labels can have an elaborate list of duties. The details my vary per music label. In most cases, record labels work directly with artists and producers to coordinate the writing and production of the recordings. After this, the coordination of the manufacturing follows and subsequently the distribution, marketing, promotion of the recording. All this is done to ensure the recording sells well around the world.
