Small post here to let everyone know all my synths have been updated!
Oddy-Free and Prophanity have been bumped up to version 1.4, and RA Mowg has been updated to version 1.2.
The main changes to all have been the filter implementation so that these instruments have a bigger sound to them without being untrue to the original instruments. As listed on their respective pages, it should be noted to USE RESONANCE ON THESE FILTERS WITH CAUTION. When pushed to the limits they will absolutely scream, and not necessarily in a good way. Different sample rates create different problems with this effect, generally observing this to be more common with higher sample rates. Consider yourself warned, and please play it safe for your ears’ and speakers’ sake.
In other RAS news,
The engine synth development is nearing an end. I’ve tested some of my more wild theories and ideas for it, and most of them have come back and proven either irrelevant or not capable of being implemented with the system it has now, so it’s time to design a GUI then test, test, test! I’m considering opening up a beta testing phase to a select few, if you are interested in taking part please let me know at my email or contact me on KVR via username Chris Roberson.
I’ve also been making huge leaps of progress on an instrument I’ve been wanting to make but never got far with in the past. This instrument is designed to create huge evolving atmospheres, and to some degree was inspired by the Ensoniq Fizmo. Unfortunately, for as absolutely stunning as it sounds already, it pretty much kills my 3.8GHz quad-core PhenomII processor when it runs all 8 of its voices, so much optimization/cutting back will be necessary. Nevertheless, this is turning into one amazing sounding synth, so progress will continue.
I have unofficial plans to create and release an emulation of the Yamaha CS-80 as well as the Yamaha DX-7. These will definitely be released free for the public like my three main existing plugins.
Also, I want to get it out there that Roberson Audio Synthesizers does plugins by request and commission. Rates are discussed on a per-plug basis, along with all the details and a decision of feasibility. If you have any requests, email me. Contact information can be found on the “About Us” page.
That’s all for now, keep checking back for more info and updates from Roberson Audio Synthesizers.
