In ancient Egypt, RA was regarded as the creator of everything, the god of the sun. RA is usually represented with the body of a man & the head of a hawk, holding an ankh & scepter. The chief location of RA worship was Heliopolis (a Greek word meaning city of the sun). RA is an appropriate name for the largest & most comprehensive rare & ethnic virtual instrument ever made. RA was born a few years ago, as a sample library called “Rare Instruments.” All of the sounds from Rare Instruments are included in RA, but this only represents approximately one-tenth of the content. The other ninety percent of RA was recorded at a top studio in Hollywood. Because of the size & complexity of the project, I brought in two talented producers, Pacemaker & Tony Austin to co-produce RA with me. They have worked on some other Quantum Leap projects & had some great ideas for RA. We spent time hunting down the best ethnic artists on the West Coast. Los Angeles is so ethnically diverse & blessed with excellent institutions like Cal Arts, it is actually the ideal place to record a rare ethnic collection. You will find RA has amazing sound quality. RA was captured with a phase accurate 8-mic setup that gives a complete 3 dimensional image of the instrument. It is this type of sound that takes to artificial sampled reverb extremely well. The sound is clear broad. Mics used were Neumann U67 (U47s as alternates), Neuman M50, AKG C12 & Shoepps. Another cool aspect of this virtual instrument is the fact that we recorded ethnic ensembles. This was done with African drums, bagpipes, gamelan a Middle Eastern string section. The sound of these ensembles cannot be realistically simulated by layering solo instruments.
