ImPerfect is W.A. Production’s take on the flaws and quirks of venerated analog gear in softsynth form.
There is a good deal of fun to be had with ImPerfect, and the sound design possibilities are quite high for those who love designing their own sounds. Up to five oscillators are selectable, giving a good breadth of choices for sounds.
The first two oscillators offer up your standard four analog waveforms. Where it gets more interesting is the addition of RM, FM, noise, a sub-oscillator, and a sampler. Waveforms can be further manipulated with old stalwarts like tuning, detuning, and pulse width modulation.
ImPerfect aims to be an intuitive plugin, and this is particularly noticeable when you look at the control labels, especially the Wacky, Cracky, and Shaky sliders. These parameters model the imperfections you’d get in a less-than-ideal piece of analog gear.
Cracky imparts some saturation, giving some real grit to the base sound signal. Shaky gives way to subtle pitch fluctuation, letting your sounds drift in and out of tune. Wacky imparts some more extreme settings to the phaser, chorus, and delay, giving more of an uncertain space.
Rounding out ImPerfect’s features is an included arpeggiator, which is admittedly a bit bare compared to some other instruments. You can latch the arp as you wish, and it supports up to four octaves of arpeggiation.
ImPerfect isn’t looking to reinvent the wheel necessarily, but it does provide a lot of fun for those wanting something a little atypical from the usual fare. The massive amount of presets included in this pack more than guarantees you’ll find some great sounds to use in your own productions.
ImPerfect is available for Windows and Mac users. Windows requires a 64-bit host and supports VST and AAX plugin formats. Mac users thankfully have a native M1 binary as well as support for AU, AAX, and VST plugin formats.
Act quick, as this exclusive BPB deal ends on February 12th.
