Rob started playing synthesizer and composing music when he was 15 years old.  At the age of 18 he had a number one hit called 'Aurora' in Benelux together with the Dutch synthesizer group 'Nova'

The virtual Rob Papen synthesizers are the cutting edge in what is possible in today's contemporary music making. They are truly unique because of the concepts, sound quality and most of all, the musical and useable nature of the presets.

Rob Papen's slogan is 'Inspiration Soundware'. This slogan was brought to him by his own customers telling him that the instruments and presets inspired them to make music and have fun.
