Distortion is one of the most powerful tools in an engineer’s toolbox.
When used subtly, it can enhance even the cleanest acoustic instruments.
When used with a heavy hand, it can increase aggression and loudness.
But like all powerful tools, if you use it wrong, it can have disastrous consequences.
Big Clipper gives you the tools to hone in your distortion to give it just the right flavor of harmonics.
From a soft, warm overdrive to crushing, bitey clipping, Big Clipper does it all and lets you easily dial it in.
ORANGE VOCODER IV: Vocoding, zynaptified.
Combining the most comprehensive and best-sounding set of vocoding algorithms available today with laser-like pitch control effects,
a powerful synthesizer, audio freezing, a super fun and efficient workflow, and tons more,
ORANGE VOCODER IV is - quite simply - the ultimate vocoder plug-in.
When it comes to creating that new vocal sound, making far-out sound effects and organic* robot and creature voices,
sculpting colourfully mutated music grooves, or whatever else you can dream up: this...
Orrville Pipe Organ is a classic pneumatic pipe organ
with 1,224 pipes, 21 ranks, 3 divisions, 2 manuals, 18 stops and 31 registers.
It was built for the First Presbyterian Church of Orrville, Ohio in 1963 by the venerable Schantz Organ Company.
With a robust and mighty sound, it's a much more elaborate and powerful instrument than you'd typically expect to find in a smaller rural church like this one,
allowing the sound to completely fill the space with an epic presence and grand tonal body.
However, that all might be explained by the fact...
Pulsar 8200 is a faithful emulation of the legendary GML 8200 designed by George Massenburg*,
the inventor of the parametric EQ. Full EQ control is a formality today, but it was a dazzling novelty back in the days.
Just like the original machine, Pulsar 8200 gives you a tight and solid low end, a crystalline high end, and surgical control over the frequency spectrum.
He perfectly replicates the all-discrete, Class-A analog electronics that made the original machine famous in the 80s, and still used today.
Its parallel topology...
Nylon Rustique is an emotional legato nylon guitar library for Kontakt.
We wanted to produce an instrument that would suit delicate, emotional lines for slower/moderate-tempo contexts;
all housed in a keyswitchless patch.
To achieve this, we captured three legato types – each activated by velocity.
The primary range plays the plucked natural legato performances,
the high velocity range triggers the slides with no pluck samples (up to a whole-step for these) ,
and the lower velocities activate the slides with pluck articulation– the speed of which can be controlled by the modwheel.
BIT stands for Back In Time… and now we move to time travel level 2!
Instead of combining the best of analogue modeling with hybrid synthesis in which you can see with the other Rob Papen synthesizers,
BIT-2’s main focus is on analogue Modelled Synthesis.
The idea behind BIT-2 is that the classic analogue type of synthesis has its own charm
and simply has not yet been covered in this form by the Rob Papen brand.
Although BIT-2 has no patch cables, it is modular by all means!
The Modulation Matrix is used for the patching, however also included is the smart ‘advanced’ panel below the Oscillators.
With these advanced features (accessed by switching the ADV switch),
you can quickly make several...

A Synth With A Soul
BA-1 is our modern re-imagination of a cultish 1982 analog synth that looked like a toy but sounded like a beast.
It brings you pure and authentic textures that are fast to program and dripping with color.
BA-1 is based on a portable 1980s synth with a toylike appearance and a gritty sound.
Despite its small size, it left a big mark on music history, while still flying somewhat under the hype radar.
The original has been used as a secret weapon for bubbly synth textures by some of Sweden’s most successful pop producers of the past two decades.
It was also a staple of 1990s digital dancehall and beloved by the indietronica scene for its raw lo-fi quality.

Solo Duduk is an ancient double reed wind instrument made from aged apricot wood.
This wood is traditionally chosen for its soft pleasant feel and rich, warm resonance,
perfect for creating mournful timbres and expressive dynamics that subtly mimic a wailing voice.
Indigenous to Armenia, the duduk is among the very oldest double reed woodwinds, with earliest instruments made entirely out of bone or cane.
It is commonly played in pairs: while the first player performs the melody, the second holds a steady drone called dum.
The sound is similar to an English horn, with a...
