Rob Papen For Mac

Rob Papen's QUAD, previously available as a Rack Extension for Propellerhead Reason is now out in the wild for literally every DAW on the planet. Now everyone can get stuck in to this fabulous synth.

ECHT, THE NETHERLANDS: virtual synthesizer, instrument, and effect plug-in developer Rob Papen Inspiration Soundware is proud to announce availability of QUAD — originally released to widespread critical acclaim as the first Rack Extension synthesizer built from the ground up by the Dutch company for Propellerhead Reason — as an AAX-, AU-, and VST- compatible virtual instrument plug-in for Mac and PC, as of April 25.

Like its notable namesake Rack Extension synthesizer predecessor, the 16-voice QUAD features two oscillators (OSC 1 and OSC 2), extended — when compared to the original’s seemingly simple arsenal of classic subtractive waveforms — to include a wide range of analogue-modelled waveforms with Sine, Saw, Square, Triangle, W (White) Noise, and P (Pink) Noise, Rez 1, Rez 2, Rez 3, HalfSine, SineSaw, SineSqr, SineRez, SawSqr, and SqrRez available alongside Additive Waves and Spectral Waves, while each oscillator also has a SUB oscillator offering Sine or Square waveforms when respectively turning the dial to the left or right of the centre position. Turning each adjacent SPREAD dial generates a multiple-oscillator sound with increased detuning between the oscillators, and each dedicated DRIFT dial simulates analogue drift of the associated oscillator.

Of course, the sound sculpting tools that set QUAD apart from all other Rob Papen virtual synthesizers are the PHASE DISTORTION and WAVE SHAPER at the heart of each oscillator section highlighted in its GUI. Generous drop-down distortion types are available — namely, Point, And, Cos 1, Cos 2, FM (WAVE SHAPER only), Feed, Fold, Fuzz, Gap, Hard, Oct 1, Oct 2, Oct 3, Or, PWM, PWM2 (WAVE SHAPER only), Rez 1, Rez 2, Saw, Shift 1, Shift 2 (PHASE DISTORTION only), Static, and Trans. These are then brought to life by two X-Y pads, which can be moved through the extensive, eight-slot MODULATION matrix — by using one of the LFOs (Low Frequency Oscillators), for instance. It is also possible to MIDI latch the X and Y parameters to dynamically change the PHASE DISTORTION and WAVE SHAPER using a hardware controller.

Creatively, OSC 2 also includes additional functions for modulating OSC 1 with OSC 2 (or vice versa) with the following types: Ring (Ring Modulation); PM (Phase Modulation); FM1, FM2, FM3, and FM4 — Frequency Modulation; Feed1, Feed2, and Feed3; Sign; Min/Max; Mix; Cross; Skew; Filter; and String (Karplus-Strong). Saying that, it is possible to prevent OSC 1 from going into the FILTER, so that it is only used as a modulator for OSC 2.

Though there are an abundance of options for sound sculpting residing within the oscillator sections themselves, these are complimented by two top-notch analogue-modelled filters (FILTER 1/2) with Serial, Parallel, and Osc. (OSC 1 goes into FILTER 1 and OSC 2 goes into FILTER 2) mode ROUTING options. Each includes no fewer than 36 filter types — namely, 6dB LP (LowPass), 6dB HP (HighPass), 12dB LP, 12dB HP, 12dB BP (BandPass), 12dB N (Notch), 12 dB LP2, 12dB HP2, 12dB BP2, 12dB N2, 18dB LP, 18dB HP, 24dB LP, 24dB HP, 24dB BP, 24dB N, 24dB LP2, 24dB HP2, 24dB BP2, 24dB N2, 36dB LP, 36dB HP, Pos (Positive) Comb, Neg (Negative) Comb, Vocal, Form2 (2-Band Formant), Form4 (4-Band Formant), Ring, 12dB LPZ, 12dB HPZ, 12dB BPZ, 12dB NZ, 24dB LPZ, 24dB HPZ, 24dB BPZ, and 24dB NZ — with their own envelope and several modulation controls.

Based around the BD module of the multi award winning Punch virtual drum synth, Rob Papen delivers a creative module to help you to produce the fattest sounding bass drums for your music. KVR Audio Interview: Rob Papen has announced the release of Quad, originally released as a Rack Extension synthesizer for Reason, as a VST/AU/AAX virtual instrument plug-in for macOS and Windows. Rob says the sonic palette is huge, through the vast modulation possibilities that Quad has to offer. The sound sculpting tools start in each Oscillator and are the Phase Distortion and WaveShaper.

An AMP (Amplifier) section includes a VOLUME envelope, VEL (Velocity), and PAN control, while QUAD has two tempo-based — via SYNC settings — envelopes (ENVELOPE 1/2) and LFOs (LFO 1/2), both of which can be connected to numerous QUAD parameters in the MODULATION matrix, including the two high-quality effects processors (FX 1/2) connected in series. FX 1 offers Chorus, Ensemble, (tempo-based) Flanger, (tempo-based) Phaser, or Widener, while FX 2 offers a combination with Reverb — using an algorithm from RP-Verb — and (tempo-based) Delay with Del-Rev or Rev-Del routing options, or as a Single effect.

Elsewhere, various options are available within the self-explanatory PLAY MODE section, including Arp (Arpeggiator) and Arp Uni (Arpeggiator playing with unison active). The ARP section itself includes ON (and off) and VEL (Velocity) per step. Several modes are included, such as Up, Down, Up/Down, Down/Up, Random, Ordered, Rev. Ord (Reverse Ordered), Ord U/D (Ordered Up/Down), Ord D/U (Ordered Down/Up), Chord, and Mod Free (for using the arpeggiator as a modulator if QUAD is in Poly, Mono, or Legato mode).

Meanwhile, QUAD’s bank MANAGER is familiar from Rob Papen’s recently-released virtual instruments — ideal for finding and organising Presets and Banks with minimum fuss. Finally, like its notable namesake Rack Extension synthesizer predecessor, the back panel allows access to additional global settings, as well as featuring four rubber feet to protect the user’s computer screen from scratches!


Seriously ending on a regenerative high note, Rob Papen himself has this to say: “Welcome to the new QUAD synthesizer — now not only available to Reason, but available to all.”

QUAD is available as a 64-bit AAX-, AU-, and VST-compatible virtual instrument plug-in for Mac (OS X 10.9 - MacOS 10.15) and as a 32- and 64-bit VST-compatible virtual instrument plug-in for PC (Windows 7/8/10) with 64-bit AAX compatibility available for PT 12 or higher (PC) at an attractive introductory price of €79.00 EUR/$79.00 USD until June 1, 2020 — rising thereafter to a MAP of €99.00 EUR/$99.00 USD — from authorised Rob Papen dealers worldwide or as a download directly from Rob Papen for those same prices from here:

Albino 3 for Mac 3 3.2.1 Latest Version 2020 Free Download

Albino 3 for Macis found in 2002 by Rob Papen approached Peter Linsener of LinPlug with the idea of a sound-designers dream synth.A few months later ALBINO was born! This very unique synth stole the hearts of many musicians due to it’s high-quality sound, usability, and inspirational presets. Albino3 has loads of amazing new creative features added like the two new filters “Scream” and “Comb”; four FX units with new FX like LoFi and WahWah; a Compressor and an improved Reverb. But the biggest new feature is that you can layer up to four instances of Albino in one single preset!. Albino 3 has more than 2200 ‘Rob Papen’ presets in various styles of music plus two banks by the very talented REYN (Famous Dutch producer), Noisia (Dutch DnB) and NarvanaX.

Albino 3 duly followed, adding a powerful arpeggiator and new digital waveforms, and beefing up the effects. The latest version, Albino 3, carries the flag forward a further stage. Probably the biggest news for existing users is that each preset can be made up of four individual sound layers. This literally quadruples the creative possibilities when programming individual sounds (80 oscillators per note, anyone?). But it also makes up for the fact that Albino is not a multitimbral instrument, so if you want to run several sounds at once you have to run several instances of it. Or rather, attempt to run several instances, as Albino continues to have a large appetite for CPU resources. Linplug reckon that a well-specified Mac or PC digital recording setup should be able to handle about 120 digital or 75 virtual analogue oscillators’ worth of sounds. In real terms, on a dual-processor Power Mac G5 running Pro Tools LE, I can’t realistically run more than three instances of it.

Other significant Albino 3 changes occur in the filters department, where the previous Silk and Cream varieties are joined by a rather less than polite Scream variation (very tasty when the resonance is cranked up) plus a Comb filter. The effects have been expanded with a wah-wah, a great lo-fi effect, a more flexible reverb, and a revised compressor. And Oscillator can now be used as an audio input, so you can use the synth to process external audio. Albino 3 comes complete with 2100 new Rob Papen presets, ranging from out-and-out hardcore trance boneshakers to subtle shimmery arpeggios that fall like digital meteor showers. It’s almost impossible not to feel inspired to create new music every time you load one of them up, which is surely the test of any sound designer’s mettle.
