NAMM 2014 Rob Papen, namesake founder of virtual instrument and effects plug-in developer Rob Papen Soundware, will be personally demonstrating BLUE-II -- the upcoming updated version of the Dutch company's breakthrough BLUE 'Crossfusion synthesis' (flexible FM, subtractive, Phase Distortion, and wave-shaping) soft synth -- in Hall A, Booth 6825 throughout The NAMM Show 2014, January 23-26 in Anaheim, California.
A spokesperson had this to say, "Without wishing to give too much away, in brief, BLUE-II lives up to its extended name by allowing adventurous explorers to reach even deeper dimensions of sound by offering an even more flexible feature set than its still-well-specified predecessor, starting with six oscillators beating at its musically creative heart. These can be connected in various ways, together with two analogue-style modelled stereo filters with 27 different filter types, an enormous range of processing and modulations options, sequencer, and an incredibly powerful arpeggiator. A new range of specially selected sample-based waveforms have been meticulously fashioned for creating new and fresh-sounding synth sounds like no other. All told, then, BLUE-II really represents an amazing journey into 'Crossfusion synthesis' and, quite simply, sounds stunning."
