TONE2 72398 overview

  • 1Description

Available for electronic download, Best Service's Tone2 RayBlaster is a soft-synth for Mac and Windows platforms supporting VSTi and Audio Units formats. This virtual instrument aims to provide its own method of synthesis: entitled Impulse Modelling Synthesis (IMS), this engine foregoes the conventional, subtractive method of using looped waveforms for synthesis, opting instead to utilize continual short bursts of energy that constantly combine to create a nuanced timbre. This synthesizer is suitable for producers, synthesizer enthusiasts, and performing musicians.

Offering manipulation of pitch, time, and timbre in real-time, RayBlaster provides detailed tones of complex character, as well as over 500 presets to get you started. Its arpeggiators can sync to your DAW's BPM, and its filtering system is distinctive as well: instead of offering you a separated filter section, RayBlaster's filters operates by means of impulse presets. You can import filters from the factory bank or create presets of your own. In this way, RayBlaster is capable of both modelling the sounds of existing filters and generating unique timbres based on your own individual predilections.

Resynthesis Capabilities
In addition to importing filter characteristics into RayBlaster's oscillators, you can also import the waveform of any other synthesizer into RayBlaster, giving you an unlimited number of possible wave-shapes, all of which can be being morphed in real-time. You can also resynthesize short samples, such as drum loops, vocal phrases, and more.
RayBlaster includes a variety of effects developed to complement its IMS engine. 18 different stereo effects are included, such as chorus, ensemble, phaser, flanger, rotary, compressor, amp-simulator, equalizer, surround-encode, vocoder, TranceGate, and a set of reverbs and delays.
