BT-Modern Wave

Updated: Jul 27, 2023

Developer: ILIO

ILIO is proud to introduce a new Artist Series patch collection: Modern Wave – for Omnisphere 2 created by electronic pioneer and film composer BT, highlighting the mass resurgence of 1980's inspired shimmering, undulating subtractive timbres now known in the colloquial as "Synthwave".

Please note: This patch collection is not included in the ILIO Patch Bundle

BT-Modern Wave — Retro-Modern Analog Synthesizer Tones

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.

Some great stuff in here. Especially the basses and pads! —Ferry Corsten (Multi-Award Winning DJ/Producer)

BT - Modern Wave includes 66 premium patches crafted by BT, to inspire your music creations.

Designed by electronica demigod Brian Transeau, this library of 66 patches for Spectrasonics’ equally divine Omnisphere 2 synth focuses on big, cinematic 80s-style analogue pads, basses, leads, arps, plucks and polys, and is of particular relevance for synthwave, synth-pop and soundtrack work. The detailing throughout is quite exquisite, every sound is a winner, and although the mod wheel is assigned to the filter more often than not, those patches that do see it doing other things – controlling effects, mixing in extra layers, etc – stand out as the highlights in a performance sense.
