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).

RAW is now also included in the eXplorer-III bundle, bringing the total of included plug-ins to 13. The bundle is available for 585 EUR/$699 USD (~50% savings on individual plugins).

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.
