Spitfire Audio has announced the release of Martyn Ware No Illegal Connections, an exclusive selection of classic analogue synth and drum sounds by the founding member of The Human League and Heaven 17.

With over 270 delectable presets, some with up to 5 distinctly different mixable signal paths giving a total library size of 13.5 GB in compressed downloadable data from 25.1 GB of WAV a total of 11016 samples!

This library is broad selection of synth and drums sounds that chart the very beginnings of UK electronica and synthesizer pop which were to influence heavily the burgeoning “electro” subset of the NY hip hop scene led by the likes of Afrika Bambaataa in the late seventies and early eighties. With a huge selection of pads, leads, pops, drums, fx, amazing tempo locked sequences and curios designed by hand, by the man himself plus a comprehensive selection of warped versions, sound designed by top award winning composers and producers. All presented in “super mono” to give you a selection of channels processed via vintage class-a analogue outboard processing.

Martyn Ware has been an essential and avid contributor to electro-pop music since the late 1970’s, and is partly responsible for such hit records as ‘Being Boiled’ and ‘Temptation’. As well as being a founding member of British Electric Foundation, The Human League and Heaven 17. Martyn has worked with a myriad of talent including Tina Turner, Chaka Khan, Erasure, Marc Almond, Mavis Stapes and Terence Trent D’Arby.

We’re delighted that Martyn has agreed to create a totally bespoke selection of composer and producer tools from a mind that has created so much innovation and sonic ingenuity.

The sample library is available for purchase for the introductory price of £75 GBP until June 12th, 2014 (RRP £99 GBP). Full version of Kontakt v4.2.4 or higher required.
