If you’re looking to add authentic sounds from across the world to your next film/video game score or simply weave an elegant and eclectic tapestry into your music, RA was designed specifically with you in mind. "With world instruments, the key to authenticity of sound is expression," says producer Nick Phoenix, "Now with RA’s built-in sensing technology that monitors a player's style and adjusts the software and sounds accordingly, users will experience a level of detail that was lacking in other products in the market, making their projects come to life with range and emotion." Captured with a phase-accurate 8-mic setup (Neumann U67, U47, M50, AKG C12 and Shoepps), RA presents a full 3 dimensional image of every sound, ensuring that every expressive detail is captured in its entirety.


From the light plucks of the kalimba to a detailed ensemble of drums nearly old as time, this collection is the perfect way to add a traditional earthiness and impart a deep village feel to your music.


From the Brazilian berimbau to Cuban percussion and the Aboriginal didgeridoo, the journey to the New World yields iconic sounds that morphed into a rich tradition of folk music shaping generations to come.


Few traditional instruments of Europe stand out like Scotland’s bagpipes, Ireland’s Uilleann pipes, and the hurdy gurdy of olde. Easily evoke any age of the West using beautiful collection of folk instruments from centuries past.


Combine the musical histories of Japan, China, Indonesia and more into a group of expert performances and multi-sampled instruments. You won’t ever be limited again by low-res, single-sample instruments when you can get to capture the full beauty of each instrument in the Far East collection.


All the staples of popular Indian ensembles are now at your fingertips. If you don’t have a simple but well-featured ensemble of instruments from traditional India at your disposal, use RA to expand your arsenal into South Asia.


Evoke images of sand dunes unfolding into the distant horizon with RA’s library of Middle Eastern instruments. If you’re looking for lyrical, ambient, and expansive sounds, you’ll particularly love the duduk, an iconic double reed woodwind capable of the most haunting textures imaginable.
