Rob Papen RPPUBD overview

  • 1Description

Punch-BD from Rob Papen is a synthesized bass drum software instrument especially designed for the contemporary producer who wants "speaker busting" sounds. Use synthesis and the built-in samples to construct your own unique sounding kick drum, or load your own custom samples.

There are six pads, each offering either drum synthesis or sample modes. There are four synthesis models with built-in classic electronic bass drum samples and 31 punch samples. The sample mode offers a dual sample slot, each with their own amp/pitch envelopes and filter & filter envelope. There are several stacking modes that offer several ways to play the instrument, including Stack Mode for stacking up to 6 BD pads, Tuned Stack Mode for stacking 6 BD pads that respond to keyboard note playing, and Sequence Stack Mode, which plays up to 6 BD pads in sequential order. Punch BD rounds out its comprehensive feature set with several modulators, a mixer, and a full featured effects section.
