Rob Papen’s RAW

When you’re pioneering rough dance music there is always the need for more brutal and more aggressive sounds. From kickdrums that create bowl movements to ripping leads and screeches that make ears bleed, as producer you always want to push them to the next level. There is a thing all these sounds have in common; distortion! Distortion is a little bit like ketchup, everything gets better with it! The more you pour on it, the better it tastes! The only difference; if you start tweaking the RAW knobs in this VST……. The hot-sauce oozes out!

Rob Papen’s Punch-BD

When you build a house, you need a strong foundation, when you start a new track you need the exact same thing. Rob Papen’s Punch-BD is a very good starting point to begin a new track.  This newest RP VST is based around the bassdrum module of the multi award winning Punch virtual drum synthesizer. Been beta testing the newest RP plugin for quite a while now and I’ve thrown together some nasty sounding sonic mayhem in 3 hard hitting presetbanks. Continue reading “Rob Papen’s Punch-BD” »

the Blue-II OddIction soundbanks

The last few months I have been doing sound design and beta testing on Rob Papen‘s Blue-II. In that period of testing I made well over 400 sounds for this new synthesiser and loved every single minute of time I spend working with it. I selected enough sounds to make 3 complete soundbanks, these are all included in the factory sounds. Some patches I kept to myself for tracks I’m currently working on and some of them got binned during the process. But no worries, there will be more OddI sounds for sure 😉

Sound design for Rob Papen

It’s always hard to keep something quit when working on something really cool! A few weeks ago I started working on sounds for the Rob Papen instruments. At this moment I finished my first soundbanks for Blade, Predator and SubBoomBass, while currently working on one for Blue. The sounds will be available for registered users at robpapen.com and added to the instruments in future updates. Continue reading “Sound design for Rob Papen” »
