Hello everyone! RAS is still working hard to bring you new and innovative products and improve upon our existing lineup.
Work is still progressing on I.C.E. Drive, where progress is still being made to improve CPU usage for real-time use. Some alterations have been implemented to improve the tool’s functionality for soundbyte farming, including increasing the step resolution for fixed RPM from 2K increments to 500 RPM increments. A granular sweep will also be implemented soon. Focus is being put on the turbocharger element to improve its realism and response.
The as-of-yet-unnamed 80′s polysynth project has been split into two entities, but will remained intertwined in a unique way. More on that as the products come closer to completion. Both units are coming together to sound phenomenal, close to the spirit of 80′s synth design, and efficient enough to run live at 96KHz without dominating available CPU headroom.
The FM Array synth project is in a state of flux, where the outcome will probably be scrapping the project as a unit but carrying over certain design ideas to build anew in a more efficient and intuitive manner.
I’ve been doing preliminary research into bringing my synths from the realm of software-only into a tangible keyboard (or at least desktop module) unit. This plan is only in its infancy, however, so it may be a while before this comes to fruition.
We’re gaining momentum again here, and I want as many people to share in this as possible at the ground floor. Keep an eye on our RAS Facebook page and be sure to share, link, and like us with all of your friends, musically-inclined and otherwise.
