Ian Boddy Radiophonica – Sounds from early soundtracks

RADIOPHONICA

Ian Boddy Waveforms Downloadable Sample Libraries

Radiophonica (WFRP001) is the first title in acclaimed UK sound
designer
Ian Boddy’s Waveforms series of independent downloadable sample
libraries. As implied by name, Radiophonica provides a library of
sounds
synonymous with the much-missed BBC Radiophonic Workshops early
work on seminal TV programmes like Doctor Who; as such, they embrace
those appealing analogue, organic, retro sci-fi sounding
characteristics of
early synthesiser soundtracks.

All 200 samples  24-bit/44.1kHz mono WAV, crossfade looped where
appropriate were created using Boddys personal collection of old
(er)
and new(er) analogue synthesisers (Roland System 100-M, Analogue
Systems RS Integrator, Doepfer A-100, Analogue Solutions
Concussor, EMS
VCS3, Moog Minimoog, Metasonix TM-2) and recorded directly into an
Apple Mac running Logic Studio via an RME Fireface 400 FireWire audio
interface with additional EQ or compression processing provided where
appropriate using Audio Ease PeriScope, Waves Renaissance Compressor,
and Waves L1 Ultramaximizer. All audible flanging, phasing,
reverb, or
echo effects are from the various analogue components of the modular
systems themselves for absolute audio authenticity.

Native Instruments KONTAKT 2 patches with a basic envelope, low-pass
filter, and modulation wheel assigned to filter cutoff are also
provided for
convenience for each program, allowing users to add effects and
modulations to the finished sounds, as well as audition programs
for all
the sounds in a single category.
