Anarchy Audioworx of Unfiltered B.I.T.’s

A lot of cool stuff happened over the past few weeks. Very exciting times over at Odd HQ, new collaborations, fresh releases and more exciting, new things planned for the next few weeks. Most of the acoustic panels are finished and up, very happy with the result. Challenges and controlled change always spark my creativity, so I teamed up with the super talented team over at Anarchy Audioworx. First Oddiction product releases there are imminent, more about that later.

Let’s start with finished projects I was fortunate to contribute on. Last weekend Unfiltered Audio released their newest effect, it’s called TRIAD; the big, multiband brother of BYOME. Both TRIAD and BYOME now have a small Oddiction soundbank in the factory library. As an absolute Unfiltered Audio fan, I’m very proud of that. Today, Rob Papen released B.I.T. a very creamy sounding VST synthesizer. Among the 950+ presets you can find an Oddiction soundbank with 128 patches.

In conclusion, a lot of wheels are in motion. Let’s dive in deeper!

RAW-Kick by Rob Papen

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.

new Oddiction soundbank for Predator 2 update

New Oddiction soundbank in RP-Predator 2 update

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.

2015 so far, so good!

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.Read More »2015 so far, so good!

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 QUAD-RE

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 newest release is called QUAD and it’s a Reason Rack Extension (RE). The main concept of this beast is Subtractive synthesis, but you can alter, sculpt and distort the sound with the Phase distortion and/or Wave Shaper part of the rack. QUAD is a very versatile synth and I had a ton of fun making patches for it!

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.Read More »Rob Papen’s Punch-BD
