Virtual Instruments / Sound Libraries - backgrounds

At first, we need to understand at present times the Plugin and VST market as a whole is a multi-billion dollar / euro affair.
Every single time we turn on our Video Game Console or TV-set, we go to the cinema or turn on our YouTube or social media video's, at some point VST Plugins / Sound Libraries / Virtual Instruments have been deployed when it comes to the music and soundtracks we hear!

Here one can download and purchase the vast and full fledged RS-Vos "Contemporary Colours" Virtual Instrument / Sound Library.

Here one can download the free but full functional RS-Vos
"Vos Contemporary" Virtual Instrument / Sound Library.

Some background; what the *beep* is a Virtual Instrument, a Sound Library, a Plugin, and VST Technology? Please go here.
In a nutshell, a Virtual Instrument / Sound Library is software which enables the user to compose and play music and/or sound design.

Having said that, it is obvious several adjacent software and hardware applications are required to let a Virtual Instrument / Sound Library perform in a proper way; e.g. full version NI Kontakt 5 or 6, Sequencer and/or Hard Disk Recorder (HDR), MIDI keyboard, Audio Interface, listening gear and a mid / high spec tablet, laptop or desktop computer.
However, one need to be a musician and/or music producer too!

Nowadays there are a zillion online and offline courses and tutorials starting and finishing at all levels imaginable.
Please go to YouTube, Adobe Audition, Steinberg, Ableton, SAE and regular Academies /
Highly recommended as well, Spitfire Audio Academy, totally free!
Or 'just' attend one of worlds finest Conservatories, the Royal Conservatoire The Hague, Netherlands.

Over time I developed an extensive variety of musical and sonic styles and worlds. Luckily I stumbled upon Virtual Instruments / Sound Library and Plugin developer, company and web shop called Rast Sound (RS).

By 2018 a realm of trust and mutual understanding did emerge, resulting in the creation of two RS-Vos Artist Libraries / Virtual Instruments; crafted, developed and designed by Rast Sound and by myself, using a carefully selected amount of samples which I extracted out of a number of compositions I composed within the last 35 years.

Enjoy and happy music making!
