Key Features
  • Morph Oscillator with Two Waveforms
  • X/Y Pad for Morph Oscillator & More
  • Analog-Modeled Multimode Filters
  • LP, BP, HP, Notch, Comb Filter Types
The Rob Papen Go2 is a virtual synthesizer designed for ease of use by sound designers, producers, and musicians. The Go2 makes all controls visually available at the same time from a single window interface. The instrument offers a powerful, yet simple structure that allows for quick and easy creative exploration. The single oscillator features two morphable waveforms and a sub oscillator, while the Spread function creates a stacked two-oscillator sound. Additional symmetry controls allow for advanced sonic manipulation, especially when working with the XY pad section, which works as a live, interactive, and programmable modulation source with tempo sync and time quantization.

Rob Papen Go2 Overview

The Rob Papen Go2 is a virtual synthesizer designed for ease of use by sound designers, producers, and musicians. The Go2 makes all controls visually available at the same time from a single window interface. The instrument offers a powerful, yet simple structure that allows for quick and easy creative exploration. The single oscillator features two morphable waveforms and a sub oscillator, while the Spread function creates a stacked two-oscillator sound. Additional symmetry controls allow for advanced sonic manipulation, especially when working with the XY pad section, which works as a live, interactive, and programmable modulation source with tempo sync and time quantization.

The analog-modeled filter offers several filter types including 12 dB LP, 12 dB BP, 12 dB Notch, 24 dB LP I, 24 dB LP II, 24 dB BP, 24 dB Notch, and Comb. The filter also includes its own dedicated ADSR envelope. A separate high-pass filter is available after the main filter for additional sound shaping. The amplifier section also includes its own ADSR envelope and features a distortion circuit and volume control.

Additional features include a play mode for setting voice allocation, portamento, unison, pitch bend, and analog drift. An arpeggiator section offers classic patterns with unusual features like sequencer mode and unison/chord control per step. The 8-way modulation matrix allows you to dynamically alter parameters by using both internal modules such as envelopes and LFOs, and external MIDI Controllers such as pitch bend, aftertouch, and other control messages defined in the MIDI-standard. Additionally, there are three effects including chorus, flanger/phaser, and stereo delay/reverb. The bank manager allows for quick navigation and selection of over 750 preset sounds, which are organized into banks and searchable by name or category.

  • Presets / Folder and Global Section:
    • Over 750 presets sorted into bank folders
    • Bank Manager: Quick Browser, Favorties, and Star system
    • With ECS (external MIDI control), Go2 can modify its sound parameters dynamically in response to MIDI messages received from an external controller
  • Oscillator Section
    • The heart of Go2 is the morph oscillator. This oscillator allows you to morph (using Go2's various morph modes) between two different waveforms.
      • First and seconds waveforms (Wave-A and Wave-B)
      • Oscillator Morph Modes: Mix, Morph, Ring, FM, Inter, and Range
      • Oct setting
      • Spread (creates a stacked 2-oscillator sound)
      • Sub: Sub-oscillator knob lets you select two different waveforms being sine or square
  • XY Section
    • The XY pad is combination of a live, interactive control and an automated programmable modulation source.
      • Modes: Poly, Free, or Mono
      • Loop Modes: off, loop or bidirectional loop
      • Sync To: tempo sync the XY movement
      • Points: From 2 to 128 points
      • Space Quantize: restricts the points in the current path to a set of grid lines
      • Time Quantize: sets the update frequency of the XY position
      • Draw Osc: XY screen also shows the current oscillator output
  • Filter Section
    • Analog Modeled Filter:
      • Cutoff Frequency
      • Q: Resonance
      • Filter Types: 12 dB LP, 12 dB BP, 12 db Notch, 24 dB LPI, 24 dB LPII, 24 dB BP, 24 dB Notch, and Comb
      • Cutoff Frequency Modulation: Velocity (Vel), Key Track, Modulation Wheel, Envelope (Env)
      • Filter Envelope: Attack, Decay, Sustain, Release (ADSR) and reverse control
  • High Pass Filter
    • Additional filter behind the main filter
      • On/off function
      • Keyboard tracking on/off,
      • Q: Resonance on/off and amount control
      • Cutoff frequency
  • Amplifier Section
    • The final volume control in Go2 with distortion on voice level
      • Distortion
      • Volume control
      • Velocity (Vel > Vol)
      • Pan
      • Volume Envelope: Attack, Decay, Sustain and Release (ADSR)
  • Play Mode Section

    • Portamento: Speed control, Rate, or Time Mode; Held Rate or Held Time mode
    • Port amount
    • Unison and chords
    • In Unison mode, Go2 plays up to 4 unison voices for each note played. This works at an oscillator / filter level, so you can still play up to 16 voices in poly mode
    • Unison modes and chords:
      • Unison 2-4
      • 2-octave
      • 3-octave
      • 2 SP

      • Step on/off
      • Tie (ties notes)
      • Slide
      • Tune
      • Vel

      • Speed
      • Sync (tempo sync option)
      • Modes: Poly, Free, Mono
  • Modulation Matrix Section
    • The 8-way modulation matrix allows you to dynamically alter parameters, using both internal modules such as envelopes and LFOs and external MIDI controllers such as pitch bend, aftertouch, and other control messages defined in the MIDI standard
  •  FX Section
    • Three effects units:
      • Chorus
      • Flanger or phaser
      • Stereo delay or reverb
