Rob Papen is known for his excellent sounding and well designed software synths and effects. In this interview we chat with him about the future of the VST / VSTi, and music software in general.
If you have been involved in digital music creation and production, then you have undoubtedly heard of Rob Papen, or at the very least you have used one of his devices. That might be the world famous Predator or Albino VSTi or anything from his monstrous FX suite. He has successfully made his name both a household one and one synonymous with quality.
This month, March 2016, he plans on releasing Prisma. Prisma is a VSTi holder shell that will be free for anyone that already owns at least one of Papen’s instruments. It is similar to Native Instruments’ Kontakt player, in that you can stack up to 4 instances, or any variations, of Papen VSTi and use them at the same time via one instance of Prisma.
I had a chance to ask some questions about the future of VST & VSTi to the man, the myth, the legend.
