Back in Christmas 2013, I decided to ‘pay something back’, as it were, by raising some money for one of my favourite charities, Oxfam. I did this by releasing four limited edition soundsets for Absynth, Massive, Omnisphere and Trilian. They were only available for a few weeks and 50% of the sales revenue went to Oxfam.
It was pretty popular and raised over £3,000, so I did it again in 2015, this time adding four more soundsets for Bazille, Diva, Zebra and Zebra HZ. This time around more than £2,500 was raised.
Since then, I’ve regularly had emails and messages asking if the sounds are coming back and now they are. I’m going to make all the sounds permanently available on my site, but now they will be bundled into two volumes: Humankind 01 with the original four soundsets and Humankind 02 with the second round of soundsets.
Each individual soundset contains 64 patches, so that’s 256 sounds in each volume. The style is generally cinematic in nature, but there also some nice ambient and electronic sounds in the collections too.
I hope you will join me in raising further funds for Oxfam, who do an incredibly important job helping vulnerable communities around the world to improve their everyday lives, assisting with emergency response teams when there is a major crisis and being part of a network that has seen global poverty halve in the last 15 years.
Good sounds, good cause.
