The Blade Story

The initial idea for the Blade virtual synth was born out of Rob Papen´s desire to have more ‘human input’ into the sound using the keyboard and controllers like the pitch bend or modulation wheel. An XY pad is perfect for the human input, but it only controls the filter and volume. This was too limiting for Rob Papen who wanted to also be able to control the ‘harmonics’ of the oscillator... changing the waveform using the XY pad.

Hence, Blade was born...

At the heart of BLADE, ready to twist and transform your musical mind, lies the Harmolator. An additive synthesis system, which rather than using the system of changing additive partials, uses global controls which capture the essence of additive synth in an intuitive way making the creation of sounds much easier than using other additive synths. The nine Harmolator controls allow you to create a vast range of sounds so you get all the amazing sounds that additive synthesis can generate with the added simplicity of traditional subtractive synthesis.

The Harmolator allows oscillator spreading, fattening the sound and also square / sine wave sub-oscillator. What´s more, the sound can be modified further by the 21 per-voice distortions types and 14 filter types.

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.

Furthermore, Blade has the full range of other modulation sources, including dedicated envelope, LFO, XY knobs, velocity and any other modulation source for Harmolator controls, two free envelopes, two free LFOs and 4 modulation slots which allow all of Blade parameters to be changed.

Two FX units featuring all the FX from other Rob Papen products, plus the Arp / Sequencer and an Easy page which allows you to easily control sounds, all add up to an amazingly flexible and useful instrument at the cutting edge of today´s synthesizers!

Press Reviews

"Blade cuts through all the guff and establishes itself as an approachable synthesizer with that all too rare quality: a distinct identity." - Sound on Sound

FM Platinum"With a solid arpeggiator, plus an array of pitch, modulation and effects parameters to explore, Blade offers a rich palate of possibilitiess for both sound design and performance." - Future Music (Rating 9/10)

"If you like deep, moving pads or wild wobbulating effects, this is the place to find them." - Computer Music

"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. Very easy to create synced bass lines and rich phasing pads. The XY pad allows amazing morphability. Blade really does provide you with infinite possibilities." - Davide Carbone, DnB Pioneer
