Rob Papen releases RAW synthesizer plugin

Rob Papen has launched RAW, a new synthesizer instrument for Windows and Mac.

Rob Papen RAW

At the Dutch Dancefair 2014, DJ Promo (aka producer Sebastian Hoff) and DJ Free-K (aka producer Freek Vergoossen) approached Rob Papen with the idea of a synthesiser that focused more on ‘distorted’ sounds with an easy to use layout.

Renowned for delivering fresh, cutting edge and musical plugins for producers, Rob Papen invited the DJs to his studio for a brainstorming session resulting in a list of ‘must have’ features and tools for a brand new synth. Armed with this list and several more brainstorming sessions later, Rob Papen and his development team created a powerful new virtual synth RAW.
RAW has two oscillators each with an X/Y field, (as included in Blade and BLUEII) to distort the waveform using Phase Distortion. But that’s not all, you can also draw two of your own ‘waveforms’ and use them as LFO waveforms enabling the creation of unique ‘wobble’ movements that are perfect for for DubStep and other electronic music styles.

RAW has all the great Rob Papen filters to shape your sound further, but in a refreshing twist, ‘EQ’, ‘Waveshaper’, ‘Distortion’ and ‘LoFi’ have also been added on a voice synthesis level. Other FX such as Chorus, Phaser, Flanger, Stereo delay and the amazing HQ Reverb of Rob Papen can all be added to your sound and of course, the cool Arpeggiator/Sequencer, Easypage and preset bank manager have all been included as standard.

In true Rob Papen style, RAW comes with many great presets with mainly contributions from several well known DJs and Producers for instant user inspiration!
Promo, Ophidian, Mad dog, Deathmachine, D-Passion, Rob Fabrie, DJ Thera, N-Vitral, Tha Playah, DJ Hidden, The Viper, Warface and many more…

RAW for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX) is available for purchase for the introductory price of 119 EUR/$143 USD until December 31st, 2014 (regular 149 EUR/$179 USD).

The Unfinished Zebra Kronos

The Unfinished has launched Zebra Kronos, a collection of 180 sounds for the Zebra2 synthesizer by u-he, aimed at cinematic scoring and atmospheric electronica.

Pulsing, shimmering, driving, moving… At the heart of most modern film, television and game scores are kinetic, spacious and rich synth sounds. Kronos provides a captivating and energetic glimpse into this world of organic, analogue noises.

Zebra Kronos is all about drama. Taking inspiration from cinematic-synth crossover artists such as M83, Cliff Martinez and Olafur Arnalds, as well as the spacious and action-packed sound of game scores such as Mass Effect, Deus Ex: Human Evolution and Mirror’s Edge.

Deep basses and basslines burn; widescreen pads and padscapes glisten; dynamic sequences and arps flow; turbulent textures and effects evolve.

As ever for a Zebra soundset, each patch features creative programming on the modwheel and the x/y performance pads.

Zebra Kronos is available for purchase for £24.99 GBP.

A Dark Edition of Zebra Kronos is also available, which contains the original version of Kronos, plus an expanded collection of a further 180 sounds, optimising the original patches for u-he’s Zebra HZ/Dark Zebra.

The Dark Edition costs £34.99 GBP.
