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.

New: Over 100 presets
Beautifully warm analog synth filter
HALion instrument (works in every DAW with VST, AU, AAX)
New in RAST-A
With the new F-envelope section, you can activate the filter envelope as a pitch modulation source. Together with the new filter options of 24 dB, low, high, bandpass and filter inversion, you have now even more possibilities to shape the sound of RAST-A. It also allows you to create sounds in a more modern style. You can hear these in 52 new and fresh additional presets which, of course, also cover the classic ’80s material we all love RAST-A for.
This update is free for all owners of RAST-A. To install, simply download the new VST Sound, double-click and it should replace the old version.
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 an entire decade of music.
