Su­perWave P8

Computer Music - - News -

It’s hard to over­es­ti­mate the im­pact made by Su­perWave P8 when it ar­rived in the early 2000s. Plugin in­stru­ments were still in their early days, and trance still held some cul­tural cur­rency, some 20 years af­ter it had be­gun. With huge, uni­son sounds and buzzing, blis­ter­ing su­per-charged saw­tooth patches, hard­ware like Roland’s JP-8080 and Ac­cess’ Virus had pro­vided pro­duc­ers with some­thing of a sig­na­ture sound. Su­perWave’s P8 pro­vided Win­dows users with a plugin al­ter­na­tive with their du­aloscil­la­tor P8. De­vel­oped us­ing Syn­thEdit, Su­perWave P8 gave the ‘save-as-VST’ con­struc­tion kit a se­ri­ous shot of cred­i­bil­ity, show­ing that pro level in­stru­ments could be cre­ated with the plat­form. su­per­wavesynths.com/p8
