The Rob Papen EDM Synth Bundle (Limited Edition) is an Electronic Dance Music bundle that comes with the Punch, Predator, and Blade.
The Blade contains the Harmolator at the center. This special oscillator system uses 9 global controls which change the harmonic content (partials) of the waveform. The Harmolator allows oscillator spreading, fattening the sound, and also square / sine wave sub-oscillator. Moreover, the sound can be further modified by the 21 per-voice distortions types and 14 filter types. The Blade offers total control of the sound over time using an array of different modulation controls.
The most significant parameter of the Blade is the central XY screen. This screen lets you alter the values directly by moving the cursor around, or you can record paths which can be replayed. The recorded path can be looped, bi-directional looped, and tempo based. Even the speed of the XY recording can be modulated for dynamic changes.
Furthermore, the Blade has a full range of other modulation sources, including a dedicated envelope, LFO, and velocity as modulation source for Harmolator controls. The 2 FX units featuring all the FX from other Rob Papen products, plus the Arp / Sequencer and an Easy page which allows you to easily control sounds, all add up to flexible and useful instrument.
The Predator is a phat sounding killer synthesizer that combines inspiring presets and first-class features to make this a go-to synth for contemporary music production. The user interface has been designed so that almost all controls are visible on the screen, thereby making it fun and incredibly easy-to-use. You can also access the help screen by a simple right click.
The Predator is packed with features such as Preset Quick Browser, Preset bank manager, Preset Morphing, Intelligent Preset Variation, MIDI and Synth Controllable FX, Unison Detune, Chord Memory, and a versatile Arpeggiator. This Predator includes over 4,400 presets collected in style banks such as hip-hop, dance, breakbeat, various trance styles, DnB banks, dubstep, hardcore dance, house, SFX banks, and several artist banks. Additionally, the Predator includes PredatorFX that allows you to use the incredible filters, modulations, effects, and vocoder as an FX plug-in within your music host.
The Punch delivers synthesized drums in detailed audio quality and with advanced features that make it suitable for the contemporary producer. You can use synthesis and the built-in samples to build your own unique sounding drum-kit. Also, your own samples can be loaded into Punch to complete the kit. The audio can then be crafted using the stunning features, filters, and huge synth power from other RP synthesizers.
The Punch’s built-in sequencers allow you to have multiple patterns at your finger tips. These grooves can be triggered in a live environment to build a song, but are also suitable for just improvisation and jamming.
