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.

The Unfinished has announced a Thanksgiving Sale, offering a 33% discount on most of its soundsets for a limited time.
I thought that, seeing as I am currently in Texas, I would have a Thanksgiving sale.
So, whilst I’m tucking into turkey, sweet potato mash, green bean casserole and pecan pie, you can be tucking into a 33% discount off all the products on the site – except for Omnisphere Horizon III and the Omnisphere Bundle. Sorry, they’re too shiny and new.
Just use the discount code DUTCHBABY to get a third off your shopping cart.
The sale will run until the end of Monday. Grab the soundset or bundle you want now, as I won’t be having a sale at Christmas. Though there will be an exciting new synth soundset release coming at the beginning of December!
The sale ends December 2nd, 2013.

The Unfinished has launched Omnisphere Horizon III, a new Horizon series soundset for Spectrasonics Omnisphere, featuring 128 patches aimed at dark and light cinematic underscore.
Like Horizon I and II, the aim of this library is to provide you with a compelling collection of sounds to guide and support your scores, whatever the tone or genre. In carefully looking at what was missing from the previous two installments, I have focused a little more on deeper and aggressive tones, as well as playful and exotic sounds.
This time round, however, there are some additional sounds. Firstly, there are some pads and textures taking advantage of the great choir/vocal sound sources within Omnisphere. Also, there are some strange and wonderful hybrid acoustic instruments, such as guitars, dulcimers, strings and pianos. Finally, there’s an overall step towards the lighter side of Omnisphere, with some arps and instruments that wouldn’t be out of place in a children’s fantasy movie or a romantic indie flick.
Each sound has instant flexibility and dynamism dialled into the modwheel, as you would expect.
The soundset is available to purchase for £19.99 GBP. It is also part of the new Omnisphere Bundle, priced at £47.99 GBP.

The Unfinished has launched Tyrell N6 Kuu Tuu, a free soundset for the Tyrell N6 synthesizer plug-in by u-he.
I decided to do a new soundset after u-he updated their free Tyrell N6 synth. So this collection of noises takes advantage of all the new tweaks and features, including the added chorus effect.
Kuu Tuu follows on from the original Kuu collection, providing oldskool analogue synth basses, pads, sequences and leads. The emphasis is on punchy and warm sounds that can be turned to a variety of genres. Though the soundset is small at 64 sounds, Kuu Tuu can be used in electro, dubstep, soundtrack, ambient, chillwave, drum n bass and breaks, to great effect.
Kuu Tuu features
- 64 patches for u-he Tyrell N6.
- 19 Basses
- 16 Leads
- 25 Pads
- 4 Sequences
The soundset is available to download at no cost.
