Rob Papen Punch 2 continues the Punch legacy as a cutting edge virtual drum machine… with lots of extra punch! The original Punch virtual drum machine combined professionally designed drum samples with a built-in pattern sequencer to enable quick and easy sound design. Now, with even more drum synthesis models added and a fresh re-designed main screen, Punch 2 allows you to take your virtual drum kit design to new heights.

Rob Papen Punch 2 Highlights

As well as extra samples and a fresh new look, the interface and synthesis sound options have been expanded greatly on the Punch 2 update. You can now import you own samples and REX files, allowing you to create unique loops with whatever samples you like.

Map out REX files or samples slices to individual pads and combine them with Punch 2’s sounds and pattern sequencer for ultimate usability and creative possibilities.

Use the many additional features for further editing of REX files and Sliced pads - that includes filters, envelopes, routing into one of the 4 FX modules and even using granular synthesis on the REX and Slice pads!

Feature-wise there is almost too much to mention here! For instance, there is a full new ‘Master’ section with EQ, Compressor, Limiter, Stereo/mono split filter, and layout mixer. Last but not least, Punch-2 also comes with a vast amount of included sounds, ready to groove into your music and productions!
