Crossfading or mixing two oscillators (thats already 1 more then bataleur ) trough the filter is magic, it lifts the sound up makes it very musical and can be really thick but also very versitale for experimental sounds together with the fm possibilities. For me personally, the sound can be very direct (like the bataleur) but also quiet more airy/gritty/organic due to the dual functionality. The vactrol vca implemented sounds different from the bataleur ofcourse, this west coast implementation is really a cool feature as well.j_dowe wrote:i would love to hear more on how it's different sounding from the bateleur? i like the bateleur, but trying to figure out if i'd like this even better. i probably can't afford to own both ($$ & hp), but i could potentially sell the bateleur+expansion to fund a raven.MaartenV wrote:Getting to try out and demo the raven, it really sounds amazing, also as an owner of the bataleur, i must say, it sounds quiet different, even more expressive and musical, it has his own character (crunchy organic sounding) compared to other high end dual oscillators i played with, really worth it.
It also has a external input which is really cool for processing other sources trough it (see mike's post above). The separate filter output is also very handy if you want to use 3 voices at the same time.
As a cellist i am always looking at modules that blend well together with the organic sound of the cello, in this case, it did very well.
