ILIO has announced the release of the Modern Wave patch library for Spectrasonics Omnisphere 2, a collection created by electronic pioneer and film composer BT.
The library highlights the mass resurgence of 1980’s inspired shimmering, undulating subtractive timbres now known in the colloquial as “Synthwave”.
Playing on BT’s extensive electronic music background and synthesizer knowledge, Modern Wave is an authentic yet fearlessly inventive collection that includes cinematic arps/BPM, rich pads, leads, deep basses, plucks, and an assortment of poly synth patches inspired by vintage analog synthesizers of the era.
Just like a vintage synthesizer, the sounds of Modern Wave can transcend genres and lend themselves to a wide variety of compositional applications. While well-suited for electronic film scoring, textures, and layering with other instruments, Modern Wave truly shines where foreground classic synthesizers are a must, such as in Synthwave, Retrowave, Downtempo and Chillwave, Vaporwave, Dream Pop, Synth Pop, Darkwave, and Future Electro.
Modern Wave is available for $35 USD.
