Ragnarok is a very interesting and capable VST synthesizer, with a wide palette of sonic creativity. The 7 band graphic eq can be used to great effect to give some serious bottom end to the sounds, the filter is very smooth and the envelopes are fast too (Ideal for solid bass / pluck sounds) I know it is a different beast from the typical VST synths that try to emulate "other" instuments, but I do find it very easy to create sounds close to the Roland SH and Yamaha CS series of monophonic synthesizers. It is of course able to produce pads / organs / strings / bass or lead sounds. The user interface is very easy to navigate and find your way around, the user manual is very well written with a detailed breakdown of each parameter section, there is even a list of presets and a brief description of the sound and performance notes (a great bonus from the old days of user manuals) The lack of any onboard effects (apart from the overdrive knob in the filter section) is for me a bonus. I prefer to audition sounds raw and think about what effects I want to add after my sound has been created.
All in all a very interesting synthesizer. CrimsonWarlock and Full Bucket have created a wonderful beast that is very light on CPU and very user friendly. Download it, install it and enjoy it. Highly recommended.
I hope to complile and upload some patches very soon.
