BLUE from Rob Papen is a virtual synthesizer plug-in that utilizes multiple forms of synthesis, including FM, Phase Distortion, Wave Shaping and Subtractive Synthesis.

The synthesizer features 6 oscillators which can be connected in various ways, a pair of analog-style modeled stereo filters, a wide range of processing and modulation options, a sequencer and a powerful arpeggiator.

  • 6 oscillators modules which include analog, additive and spectral type waveforms
  • Oscillator A and B offer PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) and symmetry control
  • Oscillators can be combined in several ways using 32 different modulation routings in the algorithm screen
  • Oscillators can have FM modulation or ring modulation and can be oscillator hard synced
  • Each oscillator can be output to the filters, the effects or output as dry
  • Dedicated screens available in the LCD screen section for algorithm selection, phase distortion/wave shaping settings and oscillator envelopes
  • 2 analog modeled stereo multi-mode filters
  • Filters provide 6dB low-pass and high-pass, as well as 12dB and 24dB low-pass, high-pass, band-pass, notch, ring, comb and vox (formant)
  • Filters with panning, panning modulation options and pre-filtering distortion
  • Easy filter control by pre-defined modulation controllers like envelope, velocity, key-track and modulation wheel
  • 9 AHDSFR type envelopes
  • Direct connection to oscillator volume, filter frequency and main volume amplifier to make sound editing fast and easy
  • Graphic and fader-control of envelopes simultaneously
  • Dynamic curves and MIDI tempo based features like delay and envelope retrigger
  • 4 highly sophisticated multi-envelopes can be built up using up to 16 sections
  • Full graphic control and additional menus with presets, load and save functions
  • Dynamic curves and MIDI tempo based functions
  • 10 LFOs with various waveforms and MIDI-syncable
  • LFOs directly connected to main targets to make sound editing easy and fast
  • LFOs have adjustable, free/poly/mono modes, key-tracking, symmetry, smoothing, attack, decay and humanize functions
  • 3 modulation step-sequencers with sequence loop start/end, poly/mono/free play modes, speed controls and step smooth function
  • Copy/paste/clear functions
  • Modulation Matrix with 2 pages of 10 slots
  • 12 synthesizer sources, 23 MIDI sources and 91 synthesizer destinations
Sequencer and Arpeggiator
  • 32 step mono sequencer, with sequencer length, speed adjust, slide amount, swing amount and volume smoothing
  • Each step has on/off, reset, -32/+32 semi-tone tune, volume, slide on/off, filter A, filter B and free modulation settings
  • Clear, load and save functions to exchange sequences in between presets
  • 32 step arpeggiator, with sequencer, sequence length, speed adjust, slide amount, swing amount and step length control
  • Each step has on/off, reset, -32/+32 semi-tone tune, volume, slide on/off, filter A, filter B and free modulation settings
  • Clear, load and save functions to exchange arpeggiators in between presets
  • Poly/Mono/Legato/Seq/Arp synthesizer play modes
  • Portmento featuring legato, switchable constant time/constant rate
  • Unison 2/4/6 mode with detuning
  • Chord memory with strum function
  • 2 effects-blocks with serial and parallel mode
  • Available effects include mono delay, stereo delay, chorus, flanger, phaser, distortion, Low Fi, stereo widener, reverb, comb filter, gator, speaker simulator, wah/delay, chorus/delay, autopan, waveshaper, ensemble and compressor
  • MIDI tempo based settings in most effects
  • EQ for total overall sound
  • 16-voice polyphony
  • Adjustable Precision setting per oscillator to simulate the instability of vintage analog synthesizers
  • Voice amount control
  • Global settings save with each individual preset
  • Easy Edit page for fast new sound results or for easy access tempo changes
  • External controller hardware settings can be saved and restored
  • Sound banks of 32 presets inside built-in browser
  • Preset handling with copy, paste, clear and compare function
  • Preset banks are sorted into style-maps for easy search
  • Preset banks respond to MIDI program change and bank select
  • All settings included the global settings are stored inside each individual preset
  • Over 1,700 presets in clear categories
  • "Fast Preset Browser" launched by right clicking on the "Preset" button with "Recently Browsed" and "Favorite" functions
