Rob Papen releases RP-Distort 2

Rob Papen has announced the release of RP-Distort 2, saying:

The original RP-Distort took distortion to a new level, and now with RP-Distort 2 we have taken it even further to a whole new creative level.

Inside version 2 and brought over from DelSane you will now find the 'Disrupt Sphere' which allows you to control several different modulation parameters at once and it even gets more exciting if you use the newly added 'Audio Follower' to also take control of the 'Disrupt Sphere'.

The heart of RP-Distort 2 still remains the 'Distortion' module, which has a pre-distortion EQ, post-distortion EQ, and Gate included. The 'Distortion' module offers 52 distortion types including Lo-fi, 2-Band distortions, Amp and Cabinet models, Audio Modulation, and new to version 2 are the Dual Wave Shapers which allow you to create your own distortions.

The EQ section inside the distortion module has been expanded by a pre-distortion EQ, a post-distortion EQ, and can be controlled either graphically or by adjusting dials using the original RP-Distort mode. Next is an analog modeled 'Filter', 'Compressor', and a 'Widener or Chorus' module. The order of these modules in the audio signal path can be rearranged which is reflected in the new user interface.

Modulating the various parameters has been taken to a new level with the 'Disrupt Sphere', 'Audio Follower', 'Modulation LFOs', and the extensive 'Mod Matrix'. Finally, RP-Distort 2 is polished off with a bank manager, to help you organize your Presets and Banks.
