Using a combination of drum synthesis/samples and the built-in pattern sequencer to trigger beats already made Punch a unique drum machine and loved by many upon its first release..

Now, by adding even more drum synthesis models, and introducing a totally new main screen which allows you to quickly create new drum kits, Punch-2 continues its legacy to be a cutting edge drum machine... but with lots of extra added punch.

Things do not stop there though, the interface and the synthesis sound options have been expanded greatly. Punch-2 now allows you to import your own REX files and samples to turn into your own loops. You can map out REX files or sample slices to individual pads and combine these creatively with the sounds & pattern sequencer found inside Punch-2. Further editing of REX files or Sliced pads is also possible, using filters, envelopes...routing into one of the 4 FX modules. And yes, you can even use granular synthesis on the REX and Slice pads.

Feature-wise there is almost too much to mention here. For instance, there is a full new 'Master' section with EQ, Compressor, Limiter, Stereo/mono split filter, and layout mixer.

Last but not least, Punch-2 also comes with a vast amount of included sounds, ready to groove into your music and productions.

NOTE: Punch-2 is delivered included Punch-BD (both installed with Punch-2)

I've been on the fence about sinking a good chuck of money into a drum synth for quite a while. Up until now, I've gotten great results from the freebies, vsti's as well as one shot samples. I first checked out Punch about 3 years ago and have been drooling over it ever since, but I was skeptical about it's Windows XP 32-bit compatability. After a recent PC upgrade, I started weighing my options again. Tried uTonic (sounds fantastic, but IMO is too limited for an all-in-one drum synth option), tried Tremor (way too big a CPU hit, even on my 3.5 Xeon with 24G ram). Punch just "worked" for me...synthesis, sampler, sequencer, built in effects (fuzz distortion is fantastic btw, reminds me of running my hardsynth into a Boss FZ-2 HyperFuuzz at times). Within minutes, my electro drums took leaps and bounds.

Bottom line? Sounds great, easy to program, low CPU hit. Buy it.

Mike.

I got it since a few days, it is included with the explorer III bundle, what can i say about it ? ...
I got a lot of drums VST, audiorealism drums machine, spark 2 with spark LE controller, all the spark add on (EDM, Dubstep ....), Tremors ...
Rob Papen is just the best, everything is easy to use, it sound really good and inspiring.The FX section is really good.
In fact, the Rob Papen explorer III is a killer deal...a must have, I recommend to try it before buy, because we don't have all the same taste and needs ;)
