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.

Luftrum has announced the Call to Arms: Charity 2012, a chance to bid on music production software and help out children in need.
Last year we had a charity event on KVR. It was titled Call to Arms: Charity and we raised 8712$ for Save the Children. This was done by almost 40 goodhearted developers donating software and proceeds for the charity. Software was auctioned directly in this thread and all the good guys were represented from small individuals to large companies such as Camel Audio, U-He, Spectrasonics, Audio Damage, Voxengo and Rob Papen just to mention a few. The charity was “unofficial” as it was started by me and the official KVR had nothing to do with the charity – other than kindly providing the forum thread for the fund raising.
I have decided to repeat the success from last year and wouldn’t it be amazing if we could break the 10k barrier? The charity can only succeed if developers who were so bighearted to contribute last year decides to support the charity again this year and if new developers join in!
Last year we had a poll regarding what charity to receive the funds. This year there will be no poll as I have chosen Save the Children to receive the funds once again.
All charity auctions end on 12:59 pm KVR Time, October 31st, 2012.
