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.Read More »RAW-Kick by Rob Papen
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.Read More »Back again, new hosting, new site look
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!
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!
