Shiny Blue Sounds


Nucleus SoundLab have released Sapphire, a new patchset for Rob Papen's BLUE. Nucleus SoundLab tell us that designer Shaun Wallace has carefully crafted 150 presets with a unique sense of creativity, while displaying BLUE's amazing sound quality and limitless possibilities. They say that Sapphire contains pristine digital sounds as well as rich analog-inspired madness.
A Nucleus Soundlab spokesperson told us, "Sapphire utilizes BLUE's unique architecture and routing capabilities to create rich new timbres and colors unheard of in the digital realm. You'll find searing leads, pulsating arpeggios, minimal basses, and ethereal keys inside the patchset.
Sapphire seeks to open your mind to new possibilities in synthesis and expand your musical palette with sounds for one of the most unique software synthesizers in the modern era." Details:

  • Compatible with both BLUE 1.7 and 1.8 on PC/Mac
