We all witnessed what happens when hardcore legends team up with an innovative software producer. It brought us RAW, a synth dedicated to the harder styles of dance music. Well, Rob Papen, DJ Promo and DJ Free-K did it again, resulting in monster synth: RAW-Kick. It’s a kickdrum synth with features like we never seen or heard before. It’s so RAW that most factory preset banks had to come with a warning message. So let’s see what this beast can do unleashed.[…]
For the last few weeks I have been beta-testing and doing sound design for Rob Papen’s Predator 2 update. This resulted in a brand new Oddiction soundbank with 128 new sounds. From bread & butter synth-sounds to oddly ‘wild’ patches, as Rob called them. In this version you find some great new features, with the new modulation destinations my absolute favorite.
This week the Propellerhead Software Reason 10.1 (free) update came out, adding some cool stuff to the already amazing Europa Rack Extension and they also added a new player: the Drum sequencer. Since I needed a break from each and everything, I have spend this Sunday in the Studio and been playing around with both items. Probably done some stuff with the Drum sequencer that I shouldn’t have 😜. There are a total of 16 patches and combinators in the download link below. […]
oddiction.net is back up and this is the first update in well over 2 years. The website has been migrated to a hopefully, more stable hosting. The last hosting had a whole lot of downtime because it was under constant DDOS attacks or server errors. With the moving and Winter cleaning, the oddiction.net website also got a new, faster loading and cleaner look. […]
A little while back I started using Propellerheads Reason, mainly for beta testing and sound design on Rob Papen products. While wandering through the amazing tutorials Propellerheads make, I discovered the Parsec Spectral Synthesizer. 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.
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 😉
