Punch 2

Not to be overlooked is the revised interface of Punch 2 with a totally new main screen which allows you to quickly create new drum kits. On the engine side, it still uses a combination of drum synthesis and samples. The new version features new drum synthesis models but also the possibility to import own REX files and samples to turn them 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.

That’s not all. You can also manipulate your REX files or sliced pads even deeper using filters, envelopes, routing FX modules or even use granular synthesis on the audio files. On top, it comes with a 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!


XY-Transfer fuses a filter bank with 36 different filter types, two FX processors and an each with an  XY panel with advanced looping functionalities. This is all then polished off with a flexible stereo delay. Each effect block can hold one effect with its own XY field. The available block effects are filter bank, comb filter, shaper, room, and gater. The stereo delay can also be placed in different combinations within these 3 blocks.

XY-Transfer can be used in a very flexible way and so very complex effect types are possible which can lead to some unheard and creative effects. So, if you are looking for an advanced filter bank that goes beyond classic effect processors, this could be an interesting plugin for you. According to the developer, it will transfer your audio into something creatively new and unheard.
