W.A. Production has released an update to its software synthesizer instrument featuring wavering detuned oscillators, modulating effects and a whole host of other functions designed to put the analog fun back into synth programming.

Version 1.6 of ImPerfect comes with a resizable GUI, 90 brand new presets, Native Arm and Intel support, improved graphics and Hi DPI support/Retina display, as well as various bug fixes.

The architecture behind Imperfect will be familiar to anyone who’s used a soft-synth before, with 5 powerful oscillators, envelopes, filters, LFOs and an arpeggiator. Where things start to get interesting is with the 3 special modulation sliders. Named “Wacky”, “Cracky” and “Shaky”, these functions introduce modulated effects, saturated harmonics and tuning inconsistencies.

Make your pads sound authentically analog and keep your arpeggios moving by adjusting these sliders to create all sorts of circuit-bending scenarios. The modulations don’t stop there; almost any of Imperfect’s parameters can be assigned to the constantly shifting dual X/Y pads and played live or programmed with MIDI automation.

ImPerfect for Windows and Mac (VST/VST3, AU and AAX) is on sale for $26.70 USD instead of $89 USD until September 30th, 2022. Version 1.6 is a free update for all current ImPerfect license owners.

New users can also purchase a bundle of ImPefect and over 20 expansion packs for only $39.90 USD during the promotion (regular $363.20 USD), and existing ImPerfect owners can get the All In One: ImPerfect Presets bundle for $19.90 USD (93% off regular).
