RAST-A for HALion is an homage to the legendary voltage-controlled synthesizers of the 1980s. It not only models the musical influence of individual hardware components on the sound, but also simulates the temperature drift of VCOs. Combined with a classic modeled filter, you get all the tools to bring back the vibrant sound that we all loved so much.
HALion instrument (works in every DAW with VST, AU, AAX)
6-voice polyphonic synthesizer – remodeled
Nice warm analog synth filter
Fewer presets, but a lot to explore
Recreated analog synth technology
This modeled synthesizer is heavily inspired by a classic synthesizer which was famous in the ’80s. The original was used by artists like Prince, Queen, Styx, Van Halen and Supertramp. However, RAST-A is not intended to be a one-to-one clone, but rather an homage to a specific sound which dominated a whole decade of music.
As colorful as the ’80s
You can easily switch the design of RAST-A with just one click. Choose between red, black, green or blue.
Open the panel for something new
Open the panel and you open up a new world of sound-shaping options. Each of the voices can be tuned differently and even the arpeggiator is designed to bring back pure simplicity of operation.
Born to be alive: The hardware components
Individual components of a hardware synthesizer always have an influence on the sound. RAST-A simulates these to make it sound very real.
A real classic: Polyphonic portamento
Each voice comes with separate portamento. It lets you recreate the typical outstanding glides which some synths were famous for.
