Sonic Faction - Archetype



Archetype includes some of the most sought-after synthesizers and drum machines in the world. Each instrument has been meticulously sampled from the original hardware and the result is a vibrant, analog sound that is incredibly fat.


Archetype for Kontakt captures the sonic essence of the original hardware, but has been completely reimagined on the outside. Each instrument’s unique interface is designed with a modern twist and has reactive animations that will inspire your creativity.

Adapted from Sonic Faction’s acclaimed Ableton Push sequencer, Archetype brings the 8×8 Grid experience to Kontakt. Each instrument (except Whoosh) has it’s own sequencer built in, which allows for creating note patterns on the fly, selecting scales, sequence modulation, pattern save & recall and more.

Archetype is powered by the free Kontakt 5 Player and now fully supports NKS™ Native Kontrol Standard*. Owners of Komplete Kontrol S-Series keyboards and Maschine 2 can easily browse all Archetype sounds at once and instantly access device controls via hardware for new levels of integration.

Roland - Roland Software Synthesizers



Legendary synths for your DAW

A growing number of the most iconic synthesizers are now available as plugins for your favorite DAW – and they're the most astonishing recreations of classic Roland instruments you've ever heard. Created with an obsessive attention to detail, the Roland Software Synthesizer plugins are perhaps the most lifelike, true-to-analog software synthesizers available… and that's just the beginning.

Sound and Fury

“At the heart of each Roland Software Synthesizer is our Analog Circuit Behavior (ACB) technology. ACB faithfully captures the sound and feel of our most revered classics, by carefully analyzing the structure and behavior of the original analog circuits to recreate every nuance and finer design details. This technology creates a fusion of beautifully classic and utterly modern synth tones that live and breathe – just like the originals.”

Mophos, Tetra, & Evolver Retiring!


We’re retiring some of our much-loved but mature products — namely, Mopho, Mopho Keyboard, Mopho Keyboard SE, Tetra, and Evolver. While each of these instruments is something of a classic in its own right, and each has found its place in countless studio recordings and stage performances, a time comes when every good synth deserves its place in the great electronic retirement community in the sky.

If you ever wanted to add any of these highly-regarded instruments to your arsenal, get them now before they’re gone. Find a DSI dealer here or contact sales@davesmithinstruments.com.
