This week I received a nice gift from a friend: the Rob Papen Blue II synthesizer plugin. A great synth with a loooooot of possibilities:
It is a 6-operator fm synth with:

-free definable algorithms
-sample playback
-oldfashioned subtractive synthesis with two fat filters
-waveshaping
-phasedistortion
-wavesequencing
-vectorsynthesis
-sequencer
-arpeggiator
-4 independent effect processors
-Etc. etc.

Truly a great synth, with elements from the good old days of the Wavestation, SY22/TG33, maybe a bit of PPG and of course the Yamaha FM synths from the DX series, but with more possibilities. Some parts of Blue II look a little like the Alesis Fusion, with free algorithms and for example the 20 modulation slots (the Fusion even has 32). The first sounds I played were very nice pads, which I immediately fell in love with. Blue II also has nice moving sounds, quite to my taste! It has a very varied soundpalette, from beautiful analog sounds to percussive sounds to fat basses and dreamy pads, for example. Just like my favorite synth, the Alesis Fusion, there is a nice raw edge to the sounds, which can be adjusted very subtle, using the many parameters.
A TOP synth and thanks Rob!

After years of working with my trusty pentium 4 PC under windows XP, it became time for a newer and faster computer. The old PC could not keep up anymore with the newer software (especially under win7), so now i have a HP Z400 workstation quadcore XEON, with 12gb internal memory, under my fingertips. I also switched to Win7 64-bit. For the next few years to come, this is a very nice system!
Since I have a faster computer now, it is also possible to use some heavier plugin synths and so today I purchased Arturia's Jupiter-8V. This is a very nice plugin, resembling Roland's Jupiter 8. Now I finally can hear why the Jupiter 8 is so praised and whether the 2nd hand prices (5000-8000 euro) that are asked for it, are justified. Of course software is never 100% identical to hardware, but I think that few will hear the difference. For the discountprice of 50 euros, because of Arturia's 15 years anniversary, you can't go wrong!



So, let's have a ball with the Jupiter 8V!
