“PRISM RETRO POP instantly transports me to the dark, winding roads of Hollywood Hills, driving a matte black Lambo with no plates and red interior LED lighting. Punchy, crispy, huge sounding and instantly familiar for fans of both The Weeknd and Justice. You guys killed it with these and they will make their way into my productions for sure.”

Martin Wave - Composer

"You can’t go wrong with AVA products and Prism Retro is a perfect example. It’s love at first sight. I can’t wait to overuse it in my tracks!"

WyKid - Composer

"The sound of PRISM Retro is pure quality straight out of the box. On top of that , there’s an ingenuity to its design that allows me to process and mix everything I need within the patch itself"

Phil Lobber -Music Producer

"PRISM Retro Pop is a cocktail of an insanely user friendly GUI, completely top shelf sounds and instant inspiration!"

Arn Andersson - Composer

"This sample pack is making me a better music producer. Not only because of the incredible modern pop drum sounds I have at my disposal now, but especially because of how much I'm learning just by listening to the 11 demos it comes with. There's so much detail in each of the demo stems. Wow!

Alex Moukala - Composer
