The original ALBINO synth stole the hearts of many musicians due to its high quality sound, usability and inspirational presets. Now, just when you thought things couldn't get any better... Albino 3 arrives! There are loads of amazing new creative features added like the two new filters "Scream" and "Comb"; four FX units with new FX like LoFi and WahWah; a Compressor and an improved Reverb. But the biggest new feature is that you can layer up to four instances of Albino in one single preset!

Albino 3 has more than 2100 'Rob Papen' presets in various styles of music plus two banks by the very talented REYN (Famous Dutch producer), Noisia (Dutch DnB) and NarvanaX (Dutch Hardcore).

Alvino's Albino

By $killZ

Comments about Rob Papen Albino 3 Virtual Synth:

Albino might seem daunghting at first with all the button's, scroll's and options available. I wouldn't recommend this synth to an inexperienced programmer. If your new to subtractive synthesis or want t learn the easiest software is vanguard. Then you can step your game up to this one. The sounds are dark and moody. I normally use this synthesizer for eerie sounds. I'd recommend this synth to anyone who want's different sounds and the ability to expand their collection by using their programming skills. There are alot of pcm waveforms to choose from and tweak.
