RP-Dock is a standalone host application for all our current Rob Papen products.
From BLUE to Blade, and all our FX plug-ins can also be loaded!
There are handy features like tempo setting and an audio recording/playback facility.
The audio setting for sample rate can be selected from 44.1Khz up to 96Khz(depending on your soundcard/device).
Midi input offers merging of all connected Midi controllers and also included is an optional midi channel selector.
RP-Dock will host all current RP products and is completely free!
A great tool if you are playing live or in the studio or... simply cool if you just like to play around with the synthesizers or effects.
