The product page and videos don't really state how many banks / patches / sounds you get with this VST synth.
One of the NAMM vids Rob stated 2000 sounds and all of Blue I sounds, in another vid Rob stated 3000 sounds.
I'm a preset guy, love synths with tons of presets to play with before jumping into or trying to jump into programming my own or tweaking an existing patch.
can someone give some me some info on number of banks/patches/sounds of Blue II?
(probably should have posted this in the Rob Papen forum but I thought I would start here)
Don't quote me here. And someone will correct me if I am wrong. But I think that Blue II has most of the sounds of Blue I but updated, and more, and where they can't be updated, they can be imported via a special import preset function.
I might have got that all wrong, but, I'm pretty sure you wouldn't miss out on much. The reason I know? I bought Blue LE and I was wondering about its preset ratio content. I think Le had something like over a thousand, and full Blue over 2000. But Blue II has more than that again.
Put it like this, inc. the import function, there is not one preset included in Blue I that you can not have or use in Blue II as well.
And it is a ridicilous amount.
I might have got it wrong. But they have spent so long building it all in that they forgot to market it. Yeah. I know. Rob Papen. Preseter extraoirdinaire. Maybe he left the check out in the rain too long to the marketing department, and had to divert it to the noodles department for a final meal kind of thing. He suffers for his art! He would be the first to admit sometimes that he goes too far!
He's like some kind of warrior preset designer.
Anyway. Just don't get lost up the river.
