    ECHT, THE NETHERLANDS: Rob Papen Inspiration Soundware is proud to announce availability of UniMagic — unveiled as a low-cost yet high-quality ‘minimalist’ multiple effect plug-in for vocals and instruments alike, and also included in the latest version of the virtual instrument and effect plug-in developer’s all-encompassing eXplorer-9 bundle at no additional cost — as of June 6…

    As a quick glance at UniMagic’s eye-catching GUI (Graphical User Interface) instantly indicates, Rob Papen’s latest effect plug-in’s controls are minimal, to say the least, leading casual onlookers to conceivably question what kind of effect plug-in it actually is. No need to worry about that, though, as anyone using it on vocal or instrument tracks can appreciate both its high-quality sound as well as revelling in the fact that it audibly thickens tracks. Try, for example, selecting a recorded vocal, then flicking through the 50 varied presets to thicken up or modernise the sound. Saying that, it also works well on harmony vocals — and instrument tracks, too. The self-explanatory AMOUNT control (determining how much of a selected effect is added to a track) is associated with an animated response to audio and effects to bring some enjoyable eye — as well as ear — candy to the production proceedings.

    Put it this way: while flicking through UniMagic’s presets proves that effect plug-ins do not necessarily have to be packed full of overly-complicated features and functions in order to create a great sound, its so-called Ribbon controller allows users to finely adjust the sound by changing a pre-defined parameter within each preset type. It is, of course, perfectly possible to synchronise the sound to tempo by using the aforesaid controller’s SPRING BACK feature (with selectable time divisions). It is also worth perhaps pointing out here that MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) control is available in UniMagic.

    Ultimately, enjoying all that UniMagic has to offer in terms of thickening up or modernising sounds with minimal fuss far from breaks the bank. Better still, owners of eXplorer-9 only have to download the latest installer and run it to add UniMagic to their Rob Papen virtual instrument and effect plug-in collection — effectively for free!

    UniMagic is available as a 64-bit AAX-, AU-, VST- and VST3-compatible virtual effect plug-in for Mac (OS X 10.13 or higher, M1/M2 ARM processor compatible) and as a 32- and 64-bit VST- and VST3-compatible virtual effect plug-in for PC (Windows 7 or higher) — with 64-bit AAX compatibility available for PT 12 or higher (PC) — priced at only €25.00 EUR/$25.00 USD from authorised Rob Papen resellers worldwide or as a download directly from Rob Papen itself for the same pricing from here: www.robpapen.com/UniMagic.html

    UniMagic is included in the latest version of Rob Papen’s all-encompassing eXplorer-9 bundle (www.robpapen.com/explorer-9.html) at no additional cost, so existing owners only have to download the latest installer and run it to add UniMagic to their Rob Papen virtual instrument and effect plug-in collection.


    About Rob Papen (www.robpapen.com)
    Self-confessed synth freak and world-renowned sound designer Rob Papen started working with synthesizers at the tender age of 15 when purchasing an analogue Korg MS-20 semi-modular monosynth and accompanying analogue SQ-10 sequencer. Suitably inspired, he subsequently released several albums as part of Dutch electronic music groups Peru and Nova — the latter featuring the same members as Peru, but with a more commercial slant — with whom he enjoyed number one hit singles in The Netherlands (Nova) in 1982 and Austria (Peru) in 1988. Peru disbanded in 1993, by which time Rob had already established himself as a sought-after sound designer, creating presets for the likes of Waldorf, Access, Ensoniq, and E-mu, before going on to found his namesake company in pursuit of creating a sound designer’s dream synth. That software dream soon became reality when Rob formed the RPCX (Rob Papen ConcreteFX) partnership with music software developer Jon Ayres to develop new Rob Papen virtual instruments and effects plug-ins, starting with BLUE — an exciting-sounding, self-styled ‘Crossfusion Synthesis’ affair (combining FM, Phase Distortion, Wave Shaping, and Subtractive synthesis into one powerful dream synth) — in 2005. Today Rob Papen soundware defines cutting-edge contemporary music production: powerful virtual instruments and effect plug-ins that intermix innovative design, uncompromising sound quality, and musical, production-grade presets to make tracks truly shine, whatever the musical genre… Inspiration Soundware, indeed!
