LinPlug MorphoX

LinPlug has announced updates to its Albino, MorphoX, and relectro plug-ins.

Today we roll out the last part of our updates, releasing new versions of relectro, MorphoX and the discontinued Rob Papen Albino. Whats finally missing is an update for Alpha, for good reason: The Alpha just goes through a more substantial update of its user interface.

Having said this, this also applies to MorphoX somewhat, adding a number of features we first introduced in Spectral. The complete list of changes follows below.

Changes in LinPlug plug-ins

  • Albino v3.2.1:
    • Fixed a bug which could cause a crash.
    • Fixed Silk Filter panning not working.
  • relectro v1.0.3:
    • Fixed a bug which could cause a crash.
  • MorphoX v1.1.0:
    • Reworked User Interface, slightly larger, now scaleable.
    • Pitch Bend setting is now saved per preset (not global anymore).
    • Voices label now acts as Activity-Indicator / Trigger.
    • Preset Browser now full size (no popup menu anymore).
    • New Aftertouch / Modulation Controller mapping.
    • A couple of new Options to adjust MorphoX behaviour in the DAW.
    • Fixed possible crashes of 64 bit PC version when loading presets.
    • Fixed bug: Position of Morph Wheel could get lost upon preset change.

The updates are now available to download for registered users. The demo versions of MorphoX and relectro are also updated.

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Feb 12, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Rob Papen has released RP-Amod, a dual modulation effect that is available free of charge to all Rob Papen customers.

Rob Papen RP-Amod

As you will probably know, a modulator is a term that is used in synthesizers. They are various types of settings that can change and alter a sound. With RP-AMOD you can use it’s modulators to alter your audio in different ways.

We have added ‘Phaser’, ‘Flanger’, ‘Chorus’, ‘Ensemble’ and ‘Tremelo’, which are classic audio modulation FX. What differs with RP-AMOD from these classic versions, is that you can also ‘tempo sync’ them to your music, and you can use two FX at the same time in various routing configurations. These routing options are not only in serial and parallel, but you can also ‘filter split’ the audio signal ahead of going to both of the FX!

RP-AMOD can spice up your vocal track, liven an instrument and even beef up your drums or drum-loops.

RP-Amod features

  • Presets in various style banks. Preset / Bank menu with Quick Browser, Favorites & Recent etc functions.
  • Main section with: Bypass, Mix, Volume, Send, Readout display and ECS (External Midi Controller Setup)
  • Send button is ‘global’ and should be used in FX send mixer setup.
  • Routing controls how the 2 modulation units are connected: Parallel, Serial, Filter Split (Using either 6, 12 or 24 db low pass / high pass filters. The filters frequency is set by the split frequency dial).
  • Audio Modulation 1 & 2 with Sync, Volume Mix control.
  • Audio Pan and Pan Modulation inside each Audio Modulation module.
  • FX Types: Chorus, Tape Chorus, Ensemble, Flanger, Tape Flanger, Phaser, Analogue Phaser, Tremelo.

RP-Amod is a free download for registered Rob Papen users.

Rob Papen launches Predator-PL

Rob Papen Predator-PL

Rob Papen Soundware has announce the availability of Predator-PL, a preset-packed, easy-to-use edition of its popular ‘phat’-sounding soft synth — exclusive to Sweetwater (USA) and Music Store Professional (Europe).

As a powerful virtual instrument that successfully interweaves innovative design, uncompromising sound quality, and musical, production-grade presets designed to make tracks truly shine — whatever musical genre they might align themselves to, Rob Papen’s popular Predator soft synth has helped the cutting-edge company play a not inconsiderable part in defining contemporary cutting-edge music production. Just ask any of the umpteen well-known artists who have happily pronounced it their ‘go-to’ synth since its introduction in 2009!

But as cool and tweaky as cutting-edge virtual instruments often are — and let’s face facts here: you can’t get much cooler and tweakier than Predator, most keyboard players and composers spend more time searching through their favourite soft synth for the perfect preset than tinkering away at fashioning sounds for themselves from scratch. It’s a simple fact of life for today’s time-stressed, fast-moving music production professionals, sadly. So, with that very thought in mind, Predator-PL purportedly represents the perfect plug-in for those who favour cherry-picking from a large and varied collection of sounds over making detailed edits of specialised parameters.

With over 4,400 presets in varied music styles — from ambient to hip-hop, trance to dubstep, and anywhere in-between and beyond, there’s surely something in Predator-PL to suit anyone simply seeking a high-quality synth preset player. Moreover, many of those highly-usable presets have been created by none other than namesake company founder Rob Papen, a supremely talented sound designer in his own right with a formidable track record dating back many years to prove it!

That’s not to say that there’s no tweaking allowed here, however. Yet Predator-PL’s user interface is intentionally as straightforward and easy to use as possible. The upper half allows basic editing of the presets while the bottom half likewise lets users browse through that enormous preset library with the greatest of ease, even allowing them to build their own favourite banks by copying presets and storing their own edits and tweaks.

So surely there must be a catch here, right? Really there isn’t one. Other than the fact that Predator-PL is being sold online only as a direct download product exclusively through Sweetwater Sound for US-based buyers and Music Store Professional for appropriate European territories, the price is most certainly right!

So what are you waiting for? Point your browser at the relevant webstore and bag yourself a healthy slice of finest Inspiration Soundware, fresh from Rob Papen. Hungering after picture-perfect presets need not be the fruitless quest it once was. Nor need it involve raiding the piggy bank for the pleasure of satisfying an appetite for supremely-satisfying sounds!

Predator-PL is available to purchase exclusively from Sweetwater Sound (USA) for $59 USD and Music Store Professional (Europe) for €49 EUR.
