Zebra2 Patch Banks

Patch Library

You don't have to be a top sound designer to make full use of Zebra – over a hundred Zebra2 programmers have already shared thousands of their creations with the world...

Many of them compiled extensive collections, others contributed patches by taking part in our monthly Zebra2 Patch Contest (see forum link). The following link takes you to an overview of all available Zebra2 patch banks (of which we are aware!), both free and commercial:

Below are some remarkable commercial patch collections by world-class sound designers,
all available directly from our online store...



The Dark Zebra

A soundset for Zebra 2.5 – with extras


A bank of over 400 presets, a collaboration between Hans Zimmer and Howard Scarr. Practically all Zebra sounds in the The Dark Knight as well as The Dark Knight Rises soundtracks are included, plus several more that didn’t quite fit into the scores. The pack also includes Hans' custom built update from a licensed Zebra2.x to the version you can see in this video, ZebraHZ. Many of the more recent patches make use of the extra features available in ZebraHZ.

For more info, system requirements and video: The Dark Zebra



Note: The included ZebraHZ does not work with Pro Tools and it doesn't work on Macs with PowerPC CPU.

Alexander Hacke: NYC

150 patches in 5 buroughs

New York City is the new patch bank for Zebra2 by Alexander Hacke, of the famous German post-industrial band Einstürzende Neubauten. Hacke’s work has influenced many musicians around the world, and the musical genre Industrial would certainly not be the same without him!

In this amazing patch collection, Hacke combines his love for New York City with his love for Zebra2. A musical hommage, a cinematic soundtrack that captures the flavor of various New York locations. Some sounds are playable chromatically, others tell an entire story within a single note. Some smirk at you ironically, others evoke the strangest of emotions. Always read the patch info, and always try the XY controls for extra expression!

For some this will be the ultimate synaesthetic guide to the Big Apple, for all others it will be the most unusual collection of individual sounds and loops they have ever heard from Zebra2.
