BLADE - Rob Papen's new cutting edge synth is here!
Wednesday, March 28, 2012
Originally announced at the NAMM show in January, Rob Papen Blade is a groundbreaking addiitive synthesis engine that has an individual character and flexibility never seen before in a software synth.
The power of Blade lies in the Harmolator – a set of nine global controls that get to the heart of the synthesis engine without the need to edit the additive partials that make up the waveform.
Blade offers total control of the sound over time using an array of different modulation controls. The most significant of these is the central XY screen. Here you can either alter things directly by moving the cursor around, or you can record paths which can be replayed, thus creating an incredibly advanced LFO.
Top producers have been busy testing Blade, here's what DnB Producer Davide Carbone reported back to us:
"I love the way Blade allows you to create modern and old skool sounds by reinventing the way a synth can be programmed. The modulation abilities are fantastic and the sound quality goes well beyond the usual soft synths."
Blade is available as a DVD or download now at the special introductory price of £78.95/€99.00 until 30th April 2012 (normal price £99/€119).
