Rob Papen launches Black Friday Sale – 25% off plugins & bundles

Rob Papen

Rob Papen has announced its Black Friday sale, offering 25% off its products for a limited time.

Well, a good sound is sometimes very simple… far from complex and does its job inside a nice piece of music. Same goes with a newsletter, short and not very long news stories… and YES it can do its job :)

News will also be exciting in December when we release our very special new software synthesizer (VST/AU/AAX) called RAW! But more about this later…

This newsletter is about ‘Black Friday until Cyber Monday’ and during this period we offer you a 25% discount on our entire product line (excluding upgrades).

So check your favourite RP dealer, the Propellerhead Shop for Rack Extensions or our own homepage www.robpapen.com and use this coupon code for receiving the discount: FRI-MON

The sale ends December 1st, 2014.

Yemski sets free Albino 3 soundsets

Rob Papen Albino 3

Yemski has set free two soundsets for the Albino 3 synthesizer instrument by Rob Papen.

As a present to all Albino users, I’ve decided to make some of my old commercial releases for Albino freeware.

The patches are from two old sets I had called Yemski Arps & Grooves and another called Yemski Sound Scapes. There are 258 patches in all. Both feature extensive use of the layering capabilities of Albino 3 to produce gigantic sounds with complex polyrhythms and lush textures.

The Arps and Sequence are my take on the sort of thing you’d get from old school workstations like the Yamaha CS6R or EX5 and the complex grooves you’d often find on them. The Soundscapes were my attempt to imitate Absynth with long evolving sounds with a slightly “out there” ethereal quality.

The soundset is a free download at Yemski’s SoundCloud page.

Distorted BD’s are the focus with these banks and don’t forget to use the Modulation Wheel to change the colourr of the BD inside the bank of DJ Free-K.

Rob Papen releases QUAD synth for Reason

Related: , , , Posted in news on Oct 28, 2014 - comment 0 comments

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

Rob Papen QUAD

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.

QUAD for Reason is available for purchase for 99 EUR.
