“the Ramans do everything in threes.” - Arthur C. Clarke
It’s time for a rendezvous with RAMA, PinkNoise Studio’s new para/polyphonic synthesizer.
RAMA is a classic synth on steroids. The heart of RAMA is a vintage synthesizer from the 80s. This is the Korg Poly-800, which has some unusual features:
oscillators (DCO) build the waveform from variations of 4 simple pulse waves
Paraphony: polyphonic sounds with a single filter
six stage envelope generator
But these are only the starting points, RAMA has many other features that make this instrument a powerful synthesizer that can hold its own in any music style.
