Postby parawave; Mon Oct 03, 2016 11:14 am RAPID Synthesizer - NOW also for MacOS X !

Hello KVR,

already seen the rumors thread, and yes apparently RAPID is coming soon. In a few days I would say, so be prepared. To give you a little taste, we created a trailer and a demo showcase. We hope you like it. As KVR is such a lovely community we also inlcuded a feature overview, feel free to ask questions. For sound demonstrations you can look up the videos below, and of course Sound Cloud. Have fun!

Sounds not bad, as far as I can tell from this compressed to death and drenched in reverb demo clip. Wavetable cababilities seem a bit rudimentary compared to Serum or Icarus, but limitations are not always bad, at least PWM, RM and hardsync are here.

What can be a modulation target? Can you modulate the wavetable morphing or effect parameters with LFO's or MSEGs?
It's not all about how close something is to the bleeding edge of technology or how long the feature list is. If it sounds good to you, it sounds good to you, full stop. (C) Vectorman

did you got inspired by the Avenger from Vengeance Sound or vice versa? because Mirko Ruta worked for them... both synths are pretty similar. what's unique in Rapid?

Avenger has about 100 times more features, Rapid seems to cater people who basically need ready to use sounds with some tweakabilty and don't want to go really deep.

Both seems to be alternatives to Nexus of some kind, but while Avenger gives you all the tools to built every Nexus preset from scratch (and way more), this one offers you important controls but still mostly relies on samples and wavetables, as I can understand from the above featureset

I know right? KVR seems to love Serialz.

I don't know. Maybe you could come up with a price tag?

Only a little. Let's remember Alchemy, who died in vain.

Almost anything, and of course the morph slider too.

Ruined but you will live happy after all.
