This Collection Includes


RAW has two oscillators each with an X/Y field, (as included in Blade and BLUEII) to distort the waveform using Phase Distortion. But that's not all, you can also draw two of your own 'waveforms' and use them as LFO waveforms enabling the creation of unique wobble movements that are perfect for for DubStep and other electronic music styles.

RAW has all the great Rob Papen filters to shape your sound further, but in a refreshing twist, EQ, Waveshaper, Distortion and LoFi have also been added on a voice synthesis level. Other FX such as Chorus, Phaser, Flanger, Stereo delay and the amazing HQ Reverb of Rob Papen can all be added to your sound and of course, the cool Arpeggiator/Sequencer, Easypage and preset bank manager have all been included as standard.

Blue 2

Blue II is a powerful, user friendly cross fusion virtual instrument synthesizer developed by Rob Papen that is extremely versatile and consists of six oscillator modules allowing a range of wave types creating different styles of sound, 4 Fx processors which can be used in unison and each contain 35 individual effects, ten LFO's for modulation, two analogue multimode filters and many more!

Predator and Predator FX

Predator is a phat sounding killer synthesizer that combines inspiring presets and first class features to make this your go-to synth for contemporary music production. Predator is packed with powerful features like Preset Morphing, Intelligent Preset Variation, MIDI and Synth Controllable FX, Unison Detune, Chord Memory and an extremely versatile Arpeggiator.


At the heart of BLADE lies the Harmolator, ready to twist and transform your musical mind. An additive synthesis system which, rather than using the system of changing additive partials, uses global controls which capture the essence of additive synth in an intuitive way making the creation of sounds much easier than using other additive synths.


Punch has a unique sound but also a built in sequencer, allowing you the user to have multiple patterns at your finger tips. These grooves can be triggered in a live environment to build a song, but are also great for just improvisation and jamming! You can can use synthesis to build your own unique sounding drum-kit, but also your own samples can be loaded into Punch to complete your kit. Your sounds can then be crafted using the stunning features, filters and huge synth power we all know from other RP synthesizers.


SubBoomBass has been carefully crafted to provide you with the tools to create fresh new bass lines, and is filled with excessive amounts of low end ammunition to detonate your tracks! SubBoomBass includes unique tuned drum percussion samples which are great for Hip Hop and RnB basses but can also be used to add rhythm flavour to your tracks. Also check out the innovative 'Wave-sequence' feature which will open up brand new sonic possibilities for your music.

Rhythm Guitar

By using the RG on board sequencer it is possible to create classic Rhythm Guitar grooves, but beyond that you can use the synthesizer features and effects to make fresh new edgy guitar grooves. To play the grooves RG is using a keyboard layout of major chords and minor chords, each with two sequence patterns (A or B) option. It is only a matter of hitting a single note in the major keyboard range or minor keyboard range and the groove plays.

Distort FX

RP-Distort is not just a distortion unit, but much more. The distortion unit inside RP-Distort can be combined with an analog modelled filter, compressor and widener unit. These units can be re-ordered, but can also be turned on or off. So in case you only want a great analog modelled filter... RP-Distort can offer this. Or only the unique widener unit which is great for widening a boring mono track.

Delay FX

RP-Delay is a unique delay with a particular focus on some very special features, including brand new FX routing! To explain, the sound reverser can reverse the input, while simultaneously reversing one of the delay lines. The reverse sound can also be triggered via a midi keyboard, generating totally new sounds, and sending them into the reverser with its own filter and distortion!

Verb FX

When it comes to pristine, authentic reverb, it?s the algorithm that counts. RP-Verb is the fruit of Rob Papen?s decades-long study of reverb and endless hours of exploring, testing, and tweaking by Rob and Jon Ayres. The result is a musical reverb that brings an a unique dimension and fullness to your mixes.

Amod FX

RP-AMOD features classic audio modulation FX including Phaser, Flanger, Chorus, Ensemble and Tremolo, however, what makes this plugin different is that you can also ´tempo-sync´them to your music as well as use two FX simultaneously in various routing configurations.
