New Granular and Spectral Synth: Padshop 2

November 13, 2019


In light of the Cubase 10.5 release today, we are also introducing a new version of our granular synthesizer, Padshop. Padshop 2 is included in Cubase Pro 10.5, Cubase Artist 10.5 and Absolute 4, but it's also available as standalone instrument through our online store. As plug-in, Padshop 2 is VST, AU and AAX compatible and runs virtually in all DAWs. This beautifully designed and unique-sounding granular/spectral synthesizer comes with more than 570 presets and 570 pre-produced samples, and allows you to import and redesign your own samples.

It may be important to note that the available update to Padshop 2 is incompatible with the Padshop included in Cubase. For all of you running Cubase Pro and Artist: we recommend updating to the Cubase 10.5 to use Padshop 2.

New features:

  • Second synth engine: Spectral Oscillator
  • More than 100 new presets and samples
  • New arpeggiator, filters and effects
  • New enhanced modulation section
  • Refreshed designFind out more
