What's new in Blade 1.0.1:

  • The latest version of BLADE is ready to twist and transform your musical mind with new exciting presets and an improved user interface.
  • The new easier to read graphics are more defined (less glow) and the modulation amount knobs now have a grey L.E.D color to show that they have a different function.
  • We have also improved the sub-oscillator sound, improved preset changing behaviour (so less CPU spikes and clicks & pops on changing the presets), and fixed a problem with Ensemble causing clicks. There are also other small bug fixes & improvements.

At the heart of BLADE, ready to twist and transform your musical mind, lies the Harmolator. 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.

The nine Harmolator controls allow you to create a vast range of sounds so you get all the amazing sounds that additive synthesis can generate with the added simplicity of traditional subtractive synthesis.

The Harmolator allows oscillator spreading, fattening the sound and also square / sine wave sub-oscillator. What's more, the sound can be modified further by the 21 per-voice distortions types and 14 filter types.

In addition to all of this, Blade has the full range of other modulation sources, including a dedicated envelope, LFO and velocity as modulation source for Harmolator controls.

Two FX units featuring all the FX from other Rob Papen products, plus the Arp / Sequencer and an Easy page which allows you to easily control sounds, all add up to an amazingly flexible and useful instrument at the cutting edge of today's synthesizers.
