Navi Retlav Studio releases Blue-II Movement & SBB Exploration

Navi Retlav Studio has released two soundsets: Blue-II Movement featuring 128 presets by Navi Retlav for Rob Papen’s new BLUE II cross-fusion synthesizer, and SBB Exploration, a soundset featuring 128 presets by Louis Green for the SubBoomBass bass synthesizer instrument.

Navi Retlav BLUE-II Movement & SBB Exploration

Rob Papen’s Blue-II is one of the most advanced virtual synthesizers on the market. We’ve tried it, and it was love at first sight. So, we’ve put ourselves into the task of making a patch bank for it. And the result surpassed our expectations. This sound bank shows the true capabilities of intense X/Y patch modulation mixed with outworldly textures, fluid pads and raging basses. This soundset is your key for sounds that sit well in a wide range of electronic music generes, especially if you are searching for fresh signature sounds.

Do you think that Rob Papen’s SubBoomBass VST Synth is only good for Bass and Kick sounds? Well, here its a good example proving otherwise, SBB is very capable of making leads, pads, and polysynths. Of course, we didn’t forgot to include great bass sounds for many different generes. Ranging from Prog Rock to Progressive House, in this package you’ll find enough to please even to the most discerning ears. Crafted with care, by synthesiser programmer Louis Green, a Drummer/Synthesist since 1983, has taken a selection of his favorite patches to formulate a combination of useful and very tweakable sounds for your enjoyment.

BLUE-II Movement is available for $25 USD, SBB Exploration is $20 USD.

Rob Papen has posted his introduction video to the new BLUE II synthesizer instrument for Windows and Mac.

Many people may have already noticed that we released BLUE-II about a week ago :)

BLUE-II represents an amazing journey into “Cross-fusion synthesis” and quite simply, sounds stunning! So it’s a good idea to check out the introduction video.

Rob Papen BLUE II

Rob Papen has released a demo version of the new BLUE II crossfusion synthesizer instrument.

Today BLUE-II remains true to that ethos with even more sound dimensions and features to its extended name, starting with six oscillators. These can be connected in various ways, together with two analogue-style modelled stereo filters with 27 different filter types, a large range of processing and modulation options, sequencer, and a powerful arpeggiator.

A new range of specially selected waveforms based on samples have been meticulously fashioned for creating new and fresh-sounding synth sounds, so don’t go expecting acoustic pianos galore here. However, since choirs and strings are an excellent basis for so many synth sounds BLUE-II has them in abundance — with much more besides.

The demo version is available to download for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX, 32 & 64-bit). The full version of BLUE II is available to purchase for $179 USD / 149 EUR.

Rob Papen has announced the release of BLUE II, the follow-up to the popular BLUE synthesizer “crossfusion” instrument, featuring a mix of FM and subtractive synthesis, Phase Distortion and wave shaping synthesis.

Rob Papen BLUE 2

Today BLUE-II remains true to that ethos with even more sound dimensions and features to its extended name, starting with six oscillators beating at its musically creative heart. These can be connected in various ways, together with two analogue-style modelled stereo filters with 27 different filter types, an enormous range of processing and modulation options, sequencer, and an incredibly powerful arpeggiator.

A new range of specially selected waveforms based on samples have been meticulously fashioned for creating new and fresh-sounding synth sounds, so don’t go expecting acoustic pianos galore here. However, since choirs and strings are an excellent basis for so many synth sounds BLUE-II has them in abundance — with much more besides!

Moreover, BLUE-II takes the useful XY pad features from its popular virtual instrument sibling Blade — a cutting-edge additive synthesis powerhouse with a human touch — and transplants them into its own equally extraordinary workflow… perfect for time-based sound movements and vector pad-type sounds. Complemented by four top-quality FX processors, each offering 35 FX types, BLUE-II is a phenomenally powerful virtual instrument to behold.

But BLUE-II is also easy to use, thanks to its user-friendly user interface and an innovative Easy Edit page for speedy sound changes, while the Bank Manager allows whistle-stop navigation through thousands of inspirational Rob Papen presets and artist sound banks covering a wide range of musical styles.

BLUE II for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX) is available to purchase for 149 EUR / $179 USD. Owners of BLUE can upgrade to BLUE II for 44 EUR / $49 USD.

Rob Papen BLUE 2

Rob Papen has announced that BLUE II, the successor to the popular BLUE synthesizer instrument for Windows and Mac, will be released on March 10th, 2014.

Blue reflected Rob Papen’s cutting-edge, creative, and musical approach towards developing virtual instruments by first delivering FM and subtractive synthesis, then duly adding Phase Distortion and wave shaping synthesis into the highly creative mix to create one seriously creative combination. Rob Papen himself called it ‘Crossfusion synthesis’ since it covered so much musical ground so effectively.

Blue II remains true to that ethos with even more sound dimensions and features to its extended name, starting with six oscillators beating at its musically creative heart. These can be connected in various ways, together with two analogue-style modelled stereo filters with 27 different filter types, an enormous range of processing and modulation options, sequencer, and an incredibly powerful arpeggiator.

BLUE II will cost 149 EUR / $179 USD. The original BLUE synthesizer is still available at the reduced price of 79 EUR / $99 USD until March 10th.
An upgrade to BLUE II will be offered at a discounted price (44 EUR / $49 USD) upon release. More details here.
