New Spectrasonics Videos Featuring Erykah Badu's Band, RC & The Gritz!

Recently, Spectrasonics invited RC & The Gritz to perform at a special pop-up show in Hollywood, California. Founded by Grammy Award Winner RC WIlliams in 2004, RC & The Gritz consists of a diverse mix of musicians from across Texas whose repertoire includes R&B, Hip-Hop, and Soul Music. Williams was given only a laptop rig running Spectrasonics's flagship software synthesizer Omnisphere 2 and its extensive software keyboard suite Keyscape. The Prophet 6 in this video is simply a controller using Omnisphere's Hardware Synth Integration feature to control Omnisphere 2. In fact, if you look closely, the audio outputs are not even connected! The sounds you hear are coming directly from Omnisphere and Keyscape

RC Williams has a natural talent for making music and a work ethic that is second to none. He seamlessly weaves all the intricate pieces of a musical narrative and does so regardless of the genre. Ultimately, the extensive expertise and experience of RC Williams results in powerful performances, whether for large crowds in the thousands or a circle of close friends.
