Really respect his stuff but never hear these two talked about much. Anyone?

I don't have Punch, but Blade is unique and can do a lot of things. It's great for stabs and fx, but there's some dubstep wobs and there's some Atmospheres.

I LOVE Rob Papens plug-ins. Predator is my main workhorse synth. Punch is a great drum machine/sampler, one of these days I'm going to get around to making my own kit(s). Blade sounds wonderful, and is an easier to use additive synth than many of the other ones I've tried out. Also, check out Blue, its a very versatile synth, and because Blue 2 is coming out, you can get Blue 1 at a decent discount.

One of the things that puts me off Blade is the interface, I think it is dead ugly, and the colours make it difficult to read the text of the controllers.

Is it possible to change the skin of that plug?
