Howard Scarr is something of a sound design legend, with none other than Hans Zimmer contracting him to provide Zebra2 patches for the soundtrack of Batman: The Dark Knight.

Our Verdict

A superb selection of new sounds for the wonderful Zebra2 synth.


  • Excellent sounds. Inspirational.


  • Nothing wrong with this package whatsoever.
Buying options

His fee was probably a bit more than the $42 he's asking for this collection of 242 Zebra2 patches, and considering the high quality of the sounds on offer it's a steal.

The collection takes in bass, lead, key, poly, organ, loop, percussion and noise sounds, and though there are plenty of coldly scientific patches on offer, there are some warmer moments too.

The package also includes 48 oscillator and 35 envelope templates, making it a no-brainer for Zebra nuts.
