Rob Papen intros QUAD Rack Extension synthesizer

Related: , , , Posted in news on Oct 23, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Rob Papen has introduced QUAD, a synthesizer Rack Extension for Propellerhead Reason.

QUAD is the first Rack Extension synthesizer built from the ground up for Reason by the Rob Papen team. It features two oscillators with a seemingly simple arsenal of classic waveforms. The sonic palette is huge though, through the vast modulation possibilities that QUAD has to offer.

The oscillators can be combined through many cross modulation functions – generating a wide range of harmonics. The next steps in the sound sculpting are the Phase Distortion and Wave Shaper. These tools are brought to life by four XY-Pads, which can be moved through an extensive modulation matrix. The movements can be recorded as automation directly into Reason’s sequencer.

QUAD’s oscillators are complemented by two top notch analogue modelled filters, an arpeggiator and two high quality effects processors.

Welcome to the new refreshing synthesizer QUAD – only in Reason!

QUAD will be available soon.

Volterock & undocument release Vocal Hazard Pack Vol 2

Voltetock Vocal Hazard Pack Vol 2

Volterock & undocument have launched Vocal Hazard Pack Volume 2, a free vocal sample pack featuring 748 vocal samples.

Almost a year ago Volterock & undocument ventured into the studio to do the unthinkable: CAPTURE THE HAZARDOUS WAILS OF HUMANITY! They crawled out of the studio shaking and whimpering with Volume I in hand. Smiles were formed, much love was received, and so we braced ourselves, with full armor covered in hazmats, and entered the studio once again for… duh duh duh duuuuh… VOLUME II !!

This new volume has over 4 times as many samples as volume I! 748 vocal samples in all! We also asked the new volunteer talent to venture out and really get creative beyond the regular screams and yells. I even brought in my long-time bff, Chris Williams, to do his famous NAZGUL SCREAM! ENJOY!

The pack is a free download at Volterock’s SoundCloud page.
