New Legendary Voltage Controlled Synthesizer RAST-A | VST Instrument for HALion

Published on Apr 18, 2019 VST Instruments & Plug-Ins

Oberheim OB-X / OB-Xa based soft synth. Sounds like my old OB-Xa, but not seeing a 2-Pole / 4-Pole switch.

"RAST-A for HALion is an homage to legendary voltage-controlled synthesizers of the 1980s. It not only models the musical influence of individual hardware components on 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 we all loved so much.


This modeled synthesizer is heavily inspired by a classic synthesizer which was famous in the ’80s. The original was used heavily by artists like Prince, Queen, Styx, Van Halen or Supertramp. But, RAST-A has not the intention to be a one-to-one clone but rather an homage to a specific sound which dominated a whole decade of music.

Hot! The temperature drift simulation

Vintage in every way you can imagine; play with the temperature drift simulation of VCOs to make your sound less predictable.

A real classic: Polyphonic portamento

Each voice comes with a separate portamento. And that lets you can recreate the typical outstanding glides some synth were famous for."
