Synth Britannia trailblazer MARTYN WARE has launched a new sample library entitled ‘No Illegal Connections’.
It contains an exclusive selection of classic analogue synth and drum sounds from his collection of rarefied electronic delights as used on his iconic records with THE HUMAN LEAGUE, BEF and HEAVEN 17.
With over 270 delectable presets, some with up to 5 distinctly different mixable signal paths giving a total library size of 13.5 GB in compressed downloadable data from 25.1 GB of WAV, a total of 11016 samples, this library is broad selection of synth and drum sounds that chart the very beginnings of UK electronica and synthesizer pop.
One of the source instruments is his beloved Roland System 100 which The Electricity Club had the privilege of operating during his talk ‘A Journey In 20 Synths’ at The South Bank Centre in late 2013.
There are a huge selection of pads, leads, pops, drums, fx, amazing tempo locked sequences and curios designed by MARTYN WARE himself plus a comprehensive selection of warped versions, designed by award winning composers and producers. All sounds are presented in “super mono” to give a selection of channels processed via vintage class-A analogue outboard processing.
