Quasimidi The Raven

   (0 reviews)

The RAVEN offers a true “Multimode”. The RAVEN is able to produce several different synthesizer
sounds at the same time. This is important for producing complete songs. To become familiar with the
synthesizers of The RAVEN we will not use Sequencer-mode; we will use Performance-mode. To be get
into Performance-mode, press the “EXIT” button several times, then press the “PERF” button.
In the Performance-mode, you are able to select different “Performances”. Think of a Performance in our
virtual studio as programmable and routable studio settings. A Performance selects the desired Synthesizer
modules, connects them with the Effects units and regulates all parameters of the setup. There are
200 ROM Performances and 50 user programmable Performances implemented in The RAVEN. The
Performance-mode is a great way to demonstrate the possibilities of The RAVEN because many aspects of
our virtual studio are used in the Performance-sounds. When a Performance is selected, the Effects associated
with that Performance are also selected. The on-board Effects processor adds room simulations and
modulation to the sounds. Up to 4 of the 16 synthesizers in The RAVEN can be used in the Performancemode.
All setups and parameters of these synthesizers are saved in a Performance. Besides the sound
generation and effects processing, another important tool has been added to our virtual studio. This tool is
called the “Motivator”. This tool triggers the synthesizers of The RAVEN in many ways and adds some
additional powerful effects. The Performances of a Performance-bank are chosen with the “TRACK”
buttons. Ten Performances are in every bank. With the “SONG/BANK SELECT” button you can choose
from the 25 banks.

The effects are divided between two independent Effect Processors. While FX-1 produces mainly reverb
and echo, FX-2 is responsible for the special effects. With the S-FEED parameter of FX-1, the output of
FX-2 can be directed to the input of FX-1.
