With the original Blue’s release in 2005 came an absolutely cutting-edge tool that enabled seamless creativity with its musically-developed approach to virtual instruments giving musicians a usable software that paired FM and subtractive synthesis and Phase distortion and wave shaping synthesis.
The result of this was a kind of cross-fusion synthesis that gave players of various genres something they could pick up and get creative with straight away, and so its popularity soared.
I love Blue 2! The patches are so good, I opened it up and started using it immediately in my current project. You read my mind on what I was looking for, how did you know?- Rod Abernethy (Composer for RAGE, TERA, Alpha Protocol, Star Trek and The Hobbit)
The Second Coming
The second version of the software, Rob Papen Blue II, sticks to the original formula of offering incredible creativity and musicality, though this iteration builds on the original to provide even more.
The basis of the software is expanded, with six oscillators that can be connected in a variety of ways, to best suit your needs. Joining these is a colossal range of processing and modulation options, a sequencer, an arpeggiator, and two analogue-style modelled stereo filters with a choice of 27 filter types.
Massive Range of Waveforms
A whole host of waveforms have been specially selected and cultivated to provide exciting new synth sounds that can be used with Rob Papen Blue II’s choir and strings sounds, along with an arsenal of other very usable sounds.
Lifted from Rob Papen’s popular Blade software, Blue II has gained the intuitive, and just plain fun-to-play, XY pad feature. Giving quick, dynamic access to the power of the software, this addition gives textural control over time-based sound movements and vector pad-type sounds.
The software is also packed with four top-quality effects processors, each of which are packed with 35 effect types.
The Rob Papen Blue II puts great focus on being easy to use, with its intuitive interface and features. Changes can be made quickly with the Easy Edit page and you can speed through presets and artist sound banks with Bank Manager.
