EMP-3 is basically a normal soundset, but with one major difference. Instead of basing it on traditional synth waveforms - we took all those analog waveforms and processed them with the lowest quality MP3 setting we could find. Then we recorded the result back into Omnisphere in 96kHz and started to build the sounds from there.

"digital organic: processed waveforms with the lowest mp3 settings possible, and process the result with warm analog filters and dense quality reverbs."

Although we made this soundset with modern digital lofi in mind - by some strange paradox the waveforms have a very interesting analog-like instability to them. Although it’s the worst of digital encoding artefacts - when turned the waveforms into sounds the digital artefacts brought out a unique, almost organic, quality to the sounds.

We also provided the basic waveforms in two different compression levels: 8 and 16 kilobits per second. 8 kbps is a more lofi and rough while 16 kbps is a bit less dirty - it sounds like it’s a step closer to the original sound without compression. On some sounds the difference is barely noticeable - and on some the effect is quite radical. Please see the two collections of waveforms as a bonus and starting point for your own sound design.

Apart from the single sounds we also included 50 multi sounds where we have created everything from complex layered sounds to small loops complete with drums and sequenced instruments.
