NEW RAPID Version - 1.7.0.
29. October 2019


It's now available for download. As always, if you are a customer, you can download it on your Purchased Products page.

But what is new?


A NEW LOOK

We added a new main theme and improved the overall visual style. We listened to the wishes of all of you and reworked the fonts, the colors and made it a darker style, so it's easier on the eyes. The older themes are still available and also include the new fonts.


INSERT POWER


  • Sync Bend A
  • Sync Bend B.
  • Organic Drift.

There are three new oscillator insert effects. The new synchronization bends combine hard sync and phase bending to achieve some interesting and complex wave manipulations.

The drift insert adds a randomized organic behavior to each unison voice, ideal for analog emulation and vintage patches. It's comparable to the heat dependent properties of analog component and adds small inaccuracies to add unique characteristics.


FILTER WIZARDRY


  • Pro LP 12dB.
  • Pro LP 24dB.
  • Xtreme LP II.

There are three new lowpass filters. The designs of these filters are based on analog architectures and implement a more intricate feedback drive and resonance behavior.


REVERB MAGIC


  • Nuclear.
  • Solar.
  • Nova.
  • Space.

The new models extend the existing reverb by adding a new internal early and late reflection model and smooth the spectral impulse and frequency decay. They simulate different space sizes from small (Nuclear) to very large (Space).


RAPID FX

It's now possible to use Rapid as effect plugin. The FX (Effect) version of Rapid is an additional plugin and already included in the new setup. It will be installed alongside the normal Rapid Synthesizer plugin. You may have to re-scan your plugin list/database. Look out for Rapid FX.


FX PRESETS

We also added a basic set of 93 FX presets. You can find them in the preset browser, mostly named with the prefix FX. e.g. "FX Ambiance" includes some reverb effects. Definitely try out the macros of these presets, they can easily add very complex motion to your mixer track and are ideally suited for build ups, drops and other track highlights.


There are various other improvements, take a look at the complete Version History for more details.

NEW RAPID Version - 1.6.0.
6. December 2018

We updated Rapid to version 1.6.0 and added new oscillator inserts and effect slots.

PM from Oscillator is a powerful insert effect which allows you to create complex "FM" sounds using another oscillator as modulation source. There is also a new RM from Oscillator and Feedback PM insert.

The Glitch is an effect which allows you to jump back in time. Choose one of the four sequences as source and the current selected one tells the Glitch how far it has to jump back.

An up to 4-Band dividable Multiband Saturator with sixteen switchable per-band types to apply dynamic and modulation processing. Asymmetric distortions, hard non linearities, bit crush, feedback, ring modulators and even limiters are available.

Tuneable delay times with and additional Tonal Delay for very short and percussive feed backs and echos. Ideal to colorize your drum loops or just reshape sounds.

A Tapestop processor to hold and continue your sound at arbitrary positions.

There are various other improvements, here is the complete Change Log for more details.
