Tone2 – RayBlaster – implements a new synthesis method called Impulse Modeling Synthesis (IMS). Instead of looping the sound waveform, the IMS creates sound through short bursts of energy that then combine to form a specific sound. All this allows you to freely manipulate the pitch, time and timbre in real time to create complex compositions. IMS does not require a separate filter section; its oscillators can plausibly simulate the sound of filters from other synthesizers and filters using one of the built-in presets or by importing your own pulses. RayBlaster is able to simulate existing filters as well as completely new, artificial filters. In addition to importing filter characteristics, you can also import waveforms from any sources and synthesizers.
