PlugInGuru Cutting Edge – RAD Waves

Welcome to RAD Waves! 128 Patches using 38 new sampled instruments from a terribly broken but awesome (RAD) sounding M1, Razor, Vital and numerous analog synths in my person collection of hardware instruments. There are over 50 BPM Patches that I worked my ears off to make as cool, useful and inspiring as possible and tons of incredible combinations of all these samples for a truly unique library that has very few ties to any other samples which makes it feel like you’re buying a totally new Synthesizer.

This is a library with samples that have been waiting over 30 years to be released! 

When I was a young lad, I worked in Los Angeles at the KORG USA distribution center in Canoga Park. They had Wenger isolation rooms I worked out of to do voicing (this is during the T-Series / O1W / Trinity / Triton era of Korg’s instruments I worked on). They also had a small repair shop where Mason would fix Korg and Marshall gear that was defective (warranty work) and one day he told me to drop by to hear this M1 that came in for repair. It was only playing thru 1/2 of the bit resolution of the D to A converter for some reason and sounded truly horrible in a very beautiful way! I took it home (shhhh don’t tell the customer) and sampled it for probably 2 or 3 days to create the RAD samples in this library (RAD stands for Really Awesomely Damaged by the way). So the 7 different Orchestra, Strings, Voices and Dark Pad “(RAD)” samples in this library all came from this one broken Korg M1. The other 31 sampled instruments consist of the Synth samples from the “Beautifully Broken” Omnisphere 2 sample library plus samples from Native Instruments Razor, Vital and various analog and digital hardware synths I sampled that I own.

Seriously, this is the most in-depth Synth oriented PATCH library I have created to date for Unify. I created all 128 patches and spent many hours making sure comments and knob assignments are in place (most patches have 17 Macro Knob assignments).

Check out the demos, watch the video walkthru and you’ll be blown away, this is a 1-stop library for pure inspiration!

More details coming soon!

  • Great Library

    This collection of sounds is really worthwhile – you will struggle to find sounds like these anywhere else. Beautifully sampled, produced and engineered, and of course you get all the flexibility and convenience that comes with having them in Unify as the host. A must-buy and a bargain.

  • Unbelievable

    This really surprised me I got it in the sale and what I’ve accomplished with it has really pushed my sound pallets selection taking my tracks to a complete different perspective grab it all I can say

  • Beautifully Broken

    By the Sounds in this Library more synths need to be broken so John can make more lemonade.

  • RAD Waves is wonderful!

    Amazing. It’s like walking through an art gallery of iconic sounds, with wonderful and different sounds around every corner. Pure genius and years and years of expertise in creating amazing sound patches for hardware synths from a handful of key sound samples. And all in your PC/Mac. Yay!!
