You can download Ravity S, R and 16. Was Ravity sold as "bundle" back in the day? I don't think so.
So what I get from this info page, is that RAvity S is the "Synth", R is the "beats rompler" and 16 was a multi-channel version of S?
Somebody out there that can fill me in please?
Oh I'm going to add this features on Ravity's web site. Thanks.
Maybe bundle package will be created.
Yes, S is meant Synth, R is meant Rhythm. You can load up to 16 modules of RavityS/R within Ravity16.
So by that understanding, each product has to be bought separately. Hm...
And Ravity16 is basically a rack/routing matrix which can be created with modern day modular environments.
A regular 40USD sale price for Ravity S sounds like an interesting deal. Bit I kind of hoped that the complete bundle costs only 40-50USD.
The MU10XG must have been a great bargain back in the day, costing just £200 and then Cubasis was included
I don't remember that Cubasis was included with my version of the MU-15. Then again, I couldn't care less as I already had Cubase. I needed an outboard solution since I switched from one ISA audio card to a Creative AWE - but I couldn't use both my old synth/audiocard combo and the AWE at the same time. So I got the MU-15 as outboard device:http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/jul99/a ... hamu15.htm

I never saw an editor for that in Cubase to be honest. And again, I could care less. This synth was a b*tch to control with the stand alone editor. Even worse in Cubase if you didn't know what SYSEX was all about (still don't to be honest, MIDI CC# can you only get so far). Unless you created your own mixer map. I basically used it as GM machine most of the time. ANd for this, it's absolutely outstanding if you need some bread and butter stuff to your overprocessed synths and samples.
But this is not about Yamaha - this is about a company that stabs at that "oldschool" direction. I never got either Purity or Ravity, then it was somewhat discontinued, so I had an eye on the "Sonic Cat" samples (the Kontakt versions).
If there are plans for an official x64 release for all their former tools... I'm definitely all ears for that.
