Time+Space has announced that is offering for free Ian Boddy Radiophonica, a sample library of WAV files and Kontakt patches.
Worth £24.95, this collection of over 400 WAV samples and Kontakt patches has been recorded and produced using sound designer Ian Boddy’s rare personal collection of analogue hardware synths. The result is a compilation packed full of analogue, organic and retro sci-fi character.
Radiophonica is the first title in Ian Boddy´s Waveforms series of sample libraries. All the sounds were produced and recorded directly from analogue hardware synthesisers. No digital processing other than a touch of EQ or compression where appropriate was used. Any effects you hear such as flanging, phasing, reverb or echo are from the various analogue components of the modular systems used.
The intention was to provide a library of sounds that are synonymous with the name of the Radiophonic Workshop from their early work on such seminal programs as Doctor Who. As such the sounds are intended to have that analogue, organic, retro sci-fi character that many find so appealing about those early synthesiser soundtracks.
Ian Boddy Radiophonica library is free for a limited time, until December 26. The download requires registration at Time+Space.
