Strange garbled voices, buzzing interference patterns and hidden morse code
Waveforms is a series of downloadable sample libraries from Something Else Music Limited. This company is run by the well respected UK sound designer Ian Boddy who has been producing sample libraries since 1992. His work includes Ambient Volumes 1 & 2, Malice in Wonderland, Morphology, Analogue Sequencer Loops & Outer Limits for Zero-G and Transmission-X for Sample Magic. He has also provided patch & sample content for LinPlug, Camel Audio & Rob Papen Soundware.
Airwaves is the second title in Ian Boddy´s Waveforms series of sample libraries. All the sounds were recorded using a high quality and powerful radio transceiver. This provided the raw data of strange garbled voices, buzzing interference patterns and hidden morse code signals that Boddy transformed into Airwaves. Many of the samples you will hear are virtually untouched other than using some judicious EQ and compression to "clean up" the material. All the sounds are originally recorded in mono and some have been further processed in stereo using an arsenal of plug-ins to enhance and complement the mood and atmosphere of these intruiging sounds.
The Kontakt 2 programs are a simple C0 - C6 keyspan with C3 as the root key and a basic envelope and low-pass filter provided. The modulation wheel is set to turn the cut-off of the filter down as it is raised. No other programming is included as the sounds themselves are "finished" and it is intended to give the customer the flexibility of adding their own effects and modulations if desired. Simply unzip the downloaded file and place where you wish on your hard drive(s). If you intend to use the Kontakt 2 programs then please leave the internal folder structure intact so that the instruments can find the relevant.
100 samples at 44.1Khz, 24 bit in WAV format . Mixture of stereo & mono samples, cross-fade looped where appropriate.
