Rob Papen Intros Go2 Synth For Mac & Windows

Rob Papen has released Go2, a new software synth that’s designed to offer powerful features in a single-screen interface.

Features:

  • Oscillator Section – the morph oscillator allows the user to morph (using Go2’s various morph modes) between two different waveforms.
  • XY Pad – a combination of a live, interactive control and also an automated, programmable modulation source.
  • Play Mode – arranges how Go2 plays its synth engine plus additional features and settings.
  • Arpeggiator section – classic style Arpeggiator with some unique features, like sequencer mode and unison/chord control per step.
  • Free LFO Section – generates modulation signals to be used as sources in a modulation path.
  • Modulation Matrix Section – the 8-way modulation matrix allows you to dynamically alter Go2’s parameters using both internal modules such as envelopes and LFOs, and external MIDI Controllers such as Pitch Bend, Aftertouch and other control messages defined in the MIDI-standard.
  • Hundreds of presets

Pricing and Availability

Go2 is available now for £41.95 / €49.

  1. From the marketing blurb: “In the Rob Papen world of synthesis there was one type of synthesizer missing…
    A synthesizer that has all of the controls and features available visually all at once.”.

    I think this is actually quite important. Too many synths have 100s of parameters spread across multiple tabs and sub-menus. Ultimately they’re unmanageably complex to use. Having a reduced user interface with a small set carefully chosen parameters is very productive. Nord synths and the recent KORG Prologue excel at this: they’re hands-on and straightforward to use.

    1. Good point. With soft synths, they get complex real quick. I’ve watched people use SERUM just to get an idea of whats going on and I bail every time. Just wanted to see what the hype was but once you have to configure a synth like your programming AI, its probably over before it starts.
