Cluster Sound has announced the release of DWave, a multi-sample Live Pack based on the Korg DW-8000, an analog-digital hybrid synthesizer from the middle 80’s, perfect for techno/house basses and synths.
The DW-8000 is a digitally controlled analog synth launched by Korg in the 1985. Its sound comes from 2 DWGS (Digital Waveform Generator System) implementing 16 sampled waveforms stored in four 256Kbit ROM chips: each octave uses its own sample and the remaining notes are recreated by additive harmonic synthesis. The DW-8000 sounds very solid and fat, especially on low-pitched notes. Thanks to the full resonant analog filter and the VCA, this ’80s tank can generate punchy basses, aggressive leads and powerful organ-line sounds.
DWave is based on 54 multi-sample recordings including the 16 oscillator waveforms and custom sounds coming from various VCF and envelopes settings. The package delivers 74 inspiring Live Racks ranging from rude basses to acid-organ sounds and filtered leads, a perfect snapshot of the DW-8000 character.
- 700 MB content, 24-bits/44.1 Khz.
- 54 Multi-Sample recordings.
- 74 Instrument Racks.
- 74 Sampler Devices.

Cluster Sound has announced the release of Oscar, a massive multi-sample Live Pack based on the OSC Oscar, a rare and iconic British synthesizer from the early ’80.
The OSCar is a vintage hybrid digital/analogue synth from British manufac-turer Oxford Synthesiser Company (OSC). Designed by Chris Hugget after the collapse of EDP, this masterpiece of engineering features digitally controlled dual oscillators with analog filters and plenty of knobs packed into a yellow plastic case with distinctive rubber elements.
The Oscar implements two wide-range DCOs and a set of 5 additive waveforms but can also carry out harmonic synthesis, allowing to create customized waveforms. The filter is built from two resonant multimode 2-pole filters (the same used in the Wasp synth) with overdrive and separation controls. The digital oscillators and the analog filters are digitally controlled using a Zilog Z80a microprocessor running at 4Mhz.
The Oscar simply sounds like no other synthesizers. Thanks to the characteristic filter design and the additive facility, this stunning rubber-based synth can generate a sound palette far wider than any other monosynth. The Oscar can easily deliver mellow organs, dark drones, brutal distorted basses, sharp pseudo-digital FX and screaming leads. It can also generate classic analog sounds but it’s at its best when taken to extreme.
Oscar is based on 64 multi-sample recordings and 285 WAV effects and loops obtained by stressing the subtractive/additive oscillators through the split personality filter. This Live Pack delivers 271 Instrument Racks, 161 Live Clips and 5 meticulously crafted Audio Effect Racks, an ultra-flexible package delivering one of the coolest vintage synth ever made.
- Size: 1.9 Gigabytes.
- 24 Bits / 44.1 Khz.
- 64 Multi-sample recordings.
- 161 Live Clips (119 Audio + 42 Midi).
- 105 Multi-sample Instruments.
- 166 FX Instruments.
- 5 Audio Effect Racks.
The Live Pack is available for purchase for 29 EUR.
