The Unfinished has launched Humankind, a new limited edition charity synthesizer soundset collection, in aid of Oxfam.
There are four soundsets: Absynth, Massive, Omnisphere and Trilian. Each soundset contains 64 patches and is priced at £9.99.
The soundsets are ‘limited edition’ because they will only be on sale for a month. After that period, they will no longer be available.
At least 50% of sale proceeds will go to Oxfam, a charity that do fantastic work around the globe, helping those who need it most. I say ‘at least’ 50% because I will be providing the option of ‘paying what you want’ and any extra you pay over the £9.99 RRP will go directly to Oxfam. This option is there if you wish to donate more money to Oxfam.
The sounds in the four collections range from the delicate and atmospheric to the downright dirty and aggressive; packed full of beautiful pads and soundscapes, and roaring basses and sequences. There is also a Humankind Bundle, with a small discount, if you wish to pick up all the limited edition sounds.
