Punch-2, XY-Transfer, and eXplorer-6 by Rob Papen


Using a combination of drum synthesis/samples and the built-in pattern sequencer to trigger beats already made Punch a unique drum machine and loved by many upon its first release!.

Now, by adding even more drum synthesis models, and introducing a totally new main screen which allows you to quickly create new drum kits. Punch-2 continues its legacy to be a cutting edge drum machine… but with lots of extra added punch! 

Things do not stop there though, the interface and the synthesis sound options have been expanded greatly! Punch-2 now allows you to import your own REX files and samples to turn into your own loops. You can map out REX files or sample slices to individual pads. You can blend these creatively with the sounds & pattern sequencer found inside Punch-2! Further editing of  REX files or Sliced pads is also possible, using filters, envelopes…routing into one of the 4 FX modules. And yes, you can even use granular synthesis on the REX and Slice pads! 

Feature-wise there is almost too much to mention here! For instance, there is a full new ‘Master’ section with EQ, Compressor, Limiter, Stereo/mono split filter, and layout mixer.

Punch-2 comes with a vast amount of included sounds, ready to groove into your music and productions! 

XY-Transfer released

At its core, it is a Filter Bank with 36 different Filter types and an XY panel which can also be recorded and played back in several different ways. Picture in your mind that you can also use it in combination with 2 other FX, which also have their own XY pad and this is all then polished off with a flexible Stereo Delay!

Imagine using the Lo-Fi effect combined with a Comb Filter and an analog modeled filter. This all with each its own XY pad and this all topped off by the Stereo Delay. It is a very creative tool for adding dynamic changes to a sound.

You can use Rob Papen exciting XY panel in combination with a cool range of effects!
The cool thing about XY-Transfer is that each ‘BLOCK’ which holds one of the FX, also has its own XY field. So very complex effect types are possible which can lead to some unheard and creative effects!

So, if you are looking for a – Filter Bank ‘ and beyond… XY-Transfer will transfer your audio into something creatively new and unheard.
