Tone2 has announced an update to its RayBlaster virtual synthesizer instrument for Windows and Mac, including VST3 support and various enhancements and fixes.

RayBlaster unveils a completely new dimension of sounds, impossible with other synths. The revolutionary Impulse Modeling Synthesis is not just a marketing buzzword, but a radically different approach to synthetic sound generation.

Changes in RayBlaster v2.7.2

  • New features:
    • Added a VST3 version.
    • You can select from 3 different installation types: Minimal (VST2 only), Default (VST2 + Standalone) and Full (VST2 + VST3 + Standalone).
    • Added a Microsoft-approved certificate to the installer.
    • HiDPI support for the VST3 version.
  • Enhancements:
    • More beautiful keyboard graphics.
    • More contrast.
    • More smart detection of the VST2 path.
    • Slightly higher performance.
    • Smaller binary and slightly faster loading.
    • More precise timing.
    • Higher sound-quality in 44 kHz, 48 kHz and 88 kHz sample-rate.
    • More robustness.
    • Several small enhancements.
  • Fixes:
    • Workaround for the ‘unusual’ audio architecture of FL Studio. It is not longer necessary to enable ‘Use fixed size buffers’ to avoid crackles.

RayBlaster 2.7.2 is downward-compatible with all previous versions. Note that the updated version no longer supports 32-bit Windows.
