Rob Papen has released a new software synthesizer plugin called Go2 which is available for Windows and MAC in VST, AU, AAX plug-in formats. Its purpose is to give sound designers and newcomers the opportunity to access every sound shaping parameter.
Rob Papen’s Go2 synthesizer looks simplistic at a first glance but offers some very interesting features and some innovations that you do not meet on other software synthesizer plugins. Everything is easy to reach from the main window, all parameters and all sections are very easy to access and control.
The “heart” of the Go2 synthesizer is the oscillator section with the morphing function, ie the possibility of merging of two different waveforms and in various ways (Mix, Morph, Ring, FM, Inter, Range) A sub-oscillator and various modulation functions are also available. The wave symmetry can be also adjusted and modulated.
A sub-oscillator can be added. An X / Y pad modulates the oscillator section, both live and automated. Automation can go up to 128 points.
Filters and Amp each have their own envelope. A free envelope, LFO, and other sources can be freely assigned via an 8-fold modulation matrix.
The Analog Modeled Filter has 12 dB LowPass, 12 dB BandPass, 12 dB Notch, 24 dB LowPass I, 24 dB LowPass II, 24 dB BandPass, 24 dB Notch and Comb. As with most Rop Papen synths, there is a powerful, synchronizable arpeggiator with numerous modes, and also it is equipped with a comprehensive effects section.
And, of course, there is a large pool of presets (600) managed by a bank manager who also has a quick browser, favorites, and star system for faster administration. I admit that I was and still am a big fan of Rob Papen’s Blue II synthesizer, released back in 2014, which I used in dozens of projects.
Go2 now comes like a fresh breath of air I really needed! Rob Papen Go2 is now available for 49 Euro – a very good price for all its features and its sounds, I can even say it’s a bargain! The plug-in is available in VST, AU, and AAX for macOS (from 10.6) or Windows (from Vista) as 32 and as a 64-bit version.
