Impulse Modelling Synthesis (IMS) is far more than a marketing buzzword - it is a radically new and different approach for sound generation, which is based on the latest research in psychoacoustics. Because of its innovative synthesis method, RayBlaster2 offers a wide range of very unique sounds, which can’t be created by other synthesizers.
RayBlaster 2.5 ships with an inspiring library of over 1100 presets created by the world's top sound designers. Many complex sounds such as arpeggiators, vocals or drumloops automatically synchronize to your track's BPM. For fast & easy access to a specific sound you desire, Tone2 arranged them into logical categories, making them easy to locate whether for live-performance or within a studio environment.

This innovative approach to sound generation goes far beyond traditional forms of synthesis. It offers a completely new world of sounds and huge potential for producing creative modern music.
Conventional synthesizers use a technique that is known as ‘substractive-synthesis’: An oscillator plays a looped waveform that is passed through a filter to shape the sound. In contrast, RayBlaster uses an entirely new approach for synthesis. It creates its distinctive sound by combining many short bursts of energy to form a complex sound. In fact, this innovative technique is very close to how our human inner ear perceives sound. Because of this radically different synthesis method RayBlaster offers a massive amount of unique signature sounds, which are impossible with other synthesizers.

Spice up your tracks with exciting movement! Do you want to use the LFO to wobble your sound? Simply drop it to a knob and you've got it. Modulation can be as simple or complex as you want. You can use drag&drop or the modulation matrix to connect dozens of sources to all important sound parameters. Modulate almost any parameter with audio-rate speed, from internal modulation sources like LFOs, punchy envelopes, step sequencers, and a wide variety of MIDI signals. We've also included midi-learn, so assigning CC's is as simple as a right-click.
RayBlaster 2.5 comes with a huge variety of effects that were developed and fine-tuned to complement RayBlaster's Impulse-Modeling-Synthesis. 44 different stereo effects are included, all carefully crafted to offer the highest quality possible: We have included a large variety of Reverbs, Delays, Chorus, Ensemble, Phaser, Flanger, Rotary, Compressor, Amp-Sim, Equalizer, Surround-Encode, TranceGate, Resonator, Hypersaw and so on.
In addition to importing filter characteristics into RayBlaster's oscillators, you can also import the waveform of any other synthesizer. This gives you an unlimited number of possible waveshapes, all of which are capable of being morphed in real-time. You can re-synthesize short samples like a drumloop or a vocal phrase. RayBlaster also offers many possibilities to synchronize complex sounds to your track's BPM as well as providing the ability to manipulate the pitch, timing and the timbre of all your sounds in real-time.

Different flexible option rich sound shaping masterpiece top synth
Can produce nice sounds but the resynthesis feature could be improved. You have to fiddle with all the knobs to get it sound like the source wave file.
Great product! Its easy and fun to work with. Lots of possibilities for sounds and routings.
