The first half of 2015 flew by in warp speed! So far I’m really excited about the software releases that I was given chance to work on and others that are still works in progress. Most of my time and effort has been going helping out my friend and Synth-Guru Rob Papen. After the release of RAW and QUAD-RE, the entire team has been sweating bullets on the newest Rack Extension called Vecto-RE. With the most recent version of this RE, 128 of my patches and Combinators are included in the factory sound library. And already working on new ones since the most recent update received some really cool new features. Continue reading “2015 so far, so good!” »
Here we go again! Just a wee bit time has past after the release of Punch-BD, but at the Papen factory the coarse seems to be full-speed ahead!

The beauty of Rack extensions is that you can directly drop them in your Rack and test them for 30 days without any limitations or other annoying stuff like noise bursts or audio drop-outs. Parsec is an amazing and very powerful Synth, it makes use of Additive Synthesis. This might sound complicated, but I assure you, this RE is so easy to use and SO inspiring! While playing around with it (and adding it to my want-for-Xmas-List!) I made a few patches which I’m more then happy to share with you.
