New virtual drum synth combines classic and synthesized drum sounds with a whole host of powerful features*

Time+Space, the exclusive UK and European distributor for synth  extraordinaire Rob Papen, has announced the release of PUNCH -- .a brand  new speaker busting, body rattling software instrument that combines  sampled and synthesized drums with breathtaking features for the  contemporary music producer.

Punch gives producers the power to use the drum synthesis to build their  own unique sounding drum kits as well as the ability to load their own  samples into Punch to complete their kit. The sounds can be crafted  using the stunning features, filters and huge synth power we've come to  expect from Rob Papen synths.

* Lets take a look at the key features...

**Drum Synthesis

*Features 16 pads (2 bass drums, 2 snare drums, 2 open hi-hat, 2 closed  hi-hat, 3 tom, 2 claps, 3 user drum) each with different models and a  selection of classic and Punch presets.

Also features 8 Dual Sample slots preloaded with samples and available  for you to load your own samples. Each has their own amp / pitch  envelopes and filter envelope.

Each drum has it´s own 'easy controls', distortion (20 different  models), output destination (to dry or any of the 4 fx channels), and  choke groups and can be previewed by clicking in the Drum Review Pad.

Punch has its own internal sequencer that can play eight different  patterns of up to 16 steps long. Each pattern is composed of 4 tracks  with each track having its own drum output.
