Rob Papen updates Blade to v1.0.3c incl. 64bit AAX

Rob Papen Blade

Rob Papen has updated the Blade software synthesizer for Windows and Mac to version 1.0.3c.

The initial idea for Blade was born out of the want to have more ‘human input’ into the sound. The classic synthesizer parts for modulation are LFOs and Envelopes. The ‘human input’ is the keyboard we play and controllers like pitch bend or modulation wheel. A XY pad is perfect for the human input, but it controls only the filter and volume… We found this to be too limited. We wanted also to control the ‘harmonics’ of the oscillator…changing the waveform using the XY pad.

Out of this idea, Blade was born…

Changes in Blade v1.0.3c

  • Added 64 bit Mac AAX version.
  • Other small fixes.

Blade for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX) is available to purchase for 119 EUR (incl. VAT) / $139 USD.

Rob Papen extends limited-edition EDM & Urban bundles + The 4 Element Synth available at student pricing

Rob Papen EDM / URban Synth Bundles

Rob Papen has announced that the availability of the limited-edition EDM and Urban synth bundles has been extended to the end of June, 2013.

These two special bundle packs were created with Urban and Electronic Dance Music producers in mind.

The EDM Synth Bundle and the Urban Synth Bundle each include three Rob Papen synths, saving you around 45% off the combined price, but don’t wait around as there are only limited amounts available worldwide.

Limited-edition bundles

  • The EDM Synth Bundle SRP: € 199.00 / $239 / GBP 169.00
    Comprising Rob Papen’s Predator virtual synth, Punch drum machine, and Blade virtual additive synthesizer plug-ins, the EDM Synth Bundle is a highly-flexible electronic monster, offering masses of diverse sounds for electronic dance producers.
  • The Urban Synth Bundle SRP: € 199.00 / $239 / GBP 169.00

Rob Papen The 4 Element Synth

Rob Papen has also announced that his The 4 Element Synth book/DVD set is now available at student pricing for everyone.

After all, anyone who wants to know what all those knobs and sliders on their favourite analogue synth actually do is a student of subtractive synthesis!

Remember that when Rob started to play his first synth at the end of the ’70s he had to learn the hard way… reading (and rereading) the Korg MS-20 manual from cover to cover. Had a well-written book about synthesis existed at that time then it would have helped Rob enormously in his quest for new sounds! Of course, the Korg MS-20 had no presets so Rob had to create sounds from scratch each and every time he wanted to play.

Over time that became easier, but you can benefit from all his blood, sweat, and tears. So sit back, relax, and enjoy this well-written book that’s as easy on the eye as it is to understand, together with more than 10 hours of entertaining and educational DVD material.

As well as watching additional online video content to supplement the book, other good news is that readers can download the demonstrative Predator presets used by Rob on the DVDs.

The book/dvd set is now available to purchase for 55 EUR / $69 USD (available in the US through Sweetwater).
