Inspired by the old-school sound design antics of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, Ian Boddy's Radiophonica takes us back to a time when Dr Who still had some semblance of geek chic and the ring modulator ruled the sci-fi roost.
The analogue vibe of the pre-digital era has been captured, and the low rumbles, scorching high end stings and crunchy effects all reek of nostalgia.
As well as being an enjoyable blast from the past, Radiophonica is chock full of eminently usable sounds for film work and electronic music.
Definitely worth checking out.
I'm mucking around with this - it really is the business. I've got six patches of the lib up and running on random whilst I wail away on a CS80 soft synth - if the lights were out you'd think it was Blade Runner.
Classy stuff - got any more like this in the pipeline?
I really like the Radiophonica library, these are sounds that we're used to with Jean Michel Jarre but it's great for people who don't have access to those old goodies
Congratulations for the idea and the realisation of this original library, that I personally think can add an original touch in film soundrack. I'm impatient to come back to composing again when we're finished with touring to use these sounds in a 'real' composing situation on my next CD projects or soundtrack/video games composing.
