Rob Papen The 4 Element Synth book and DVDs announced

Rob Papen, friend of Gearjunkies, is a Dutch sound designer whose sounds and virtual synthesizers like Blade and Predator are used by a lot of producers all over the world, has completed his 4 Element Synth book and DVD. He told us that he originally planned just one DVD with a bookled inside. Now, over five years and many hours of script writing, filming and editing later, he is finished and all the content is not on one but on four DVDs with over 10 hours of material and a book with over 200 pages of content.

The secrets of subtractive synthesis “The 4 Element Synth” 

In 2001, Rob Papen began giving exclusive masterclasses teaching ‘synthesizer sound design’ in his studio. For these training sessions, Rob developed his own method to explain the secrets of subtractive synthesis, called “The 4 Element Synth“.

This masterclass training is now transformed into a combined book and DVD package that also delivers numerous ‘tips and tricks’ which will help you to design and tweak your own sounds. Throughout the masterclass, a variety of hardware and software synthesizers are explored.

We are sure this synthesizer sound design training is an eye-opener for every synthesizer player, from novice to pro. A must have for everyone who takes his sounds seriously! 

Price: € 74– / USD 89– (excluded shipment cost) Release:  Nov / Early Dec 2012.
