You could try ti import one of the samples in the RAyblaster content (not the single cycles...) with the Resynthesis tool from the file menu. The result could be comparable to Granular synthesis. You could play with the harmonic value and/or the start phase.
When imported with the Resynthesis tool Rayblaster will try to fit the oscillator settings as good as possible.
You could the try to modulate the osc parameters (e.g. start phase, harmonic) or shape the waveform further using different "Osc windows" (drop-down menu available below "load Wave1" in the oscillator section.
about "osc windows" from the manual:
There are several window types available, each with its own preferred use or way to influence the sound.
The cosine window is the softest sounding one, it is a general purpose window and will be preferred especially on granulartypes of sounds.
Soft Saw, Exponential, Saw Down and Off are suitable for modeling the behavior of filters or beat slicing drum-loops.
For synced sounds use Off/Square or Saw Down together with
the SYNC button.

In the manual the "Resynthesis" import is also called "quick import". You could use it to load all kind of waveforms but it will automatically reset the preset and adapt some of the osc parameters automatically.
About "harmonic" (from manual):
Harmonic controls the harmonic content of the oscillator. When it is set to a value above 1 the waveform within the window is repeated for several times so it will sound more bright and harsh.
When negative values are used it will result mostly in a darker sound, since only a smaller part of the waveform will be part of the window.
The Start value defines the start offset of the waveform or the waveform's phase within the window function.
The Start value is for example used when you want to play granular or beat sliced sounds, where only a part of the sample is played back. If harmonic is set to a negative value the Start parameter can be used to scan forward or backward through a sample.
With these types of sounds usually a sawtooth LFO is routed to Osc Start Phase, this will allow the synth to scan-play though the sample in real time.

I have started to collect some useful informations (besides free waveforms) here:
