Fu­ture Wave £45

Computer Music - - Reviews -

930MB of syn­th­wave sam­ples, draw­ing on 80s movies and videogames for in­spi­ra­tion, com­pris­ing 476 one-shots and loops at 100-130bpm. The beats have the req­ui­site heft, re­ver­ber­a­tion and clas­sic drum ma­chine ref­er­ence points; the basses range from Car­pen­ter-es­que to rel­a­tively ‘pop’; and the synths, gui­tars and other melod­ics make great use of wob­ble and dis­tor­tion. We like the one-shot gui­tar and synth chords, too. Brighter and more in­ter­est­ing in com­po­si­tion and styling than most li­braries in its genre, Fu­ture Wave is a breath of fresh air. www.times­pace.com n9/ 10n
