Dave Mackay Sound Bank


Dave Mackay is a British keyboardist/producer/musical director based in Los Angeles, CA and has worked with a wide range of artists including Art Garfunkel, Plini, Lapsley and Pomplamoose. 

"I wanted to make a sound bank that kind of represents all the genres that I'm interested in, so the sounds in here are for electronic producers, ambient composing, pop music and even for like a jazz trio" 

To fully appreciate the patches make sure to explore the Morphs assigned to the Modulation Wheel and Control Pedal!
