You can probably already replicate it by just using the normal filter plus an additional insert filter e.g. by using different resonances at different cutoff frequencies. Or putting the insert with Tube Distortion/Exciter before the filter.
Just saying, the payoff to develop new ones is a bit low to justify it. There are higher priorities, that will actually introduce new features.
Fair enough, and it's not that the current filters are bad, they surely aren't. They work for most sounds. I meant something like heavily overdriven filters with self-oscillation for certain "extreme" sounds but it's not a priority. That multiband saturator and glitch FX are surely more interesting.

When the sale began? I was music store today and my intention was to buy a new headphones. After spending 3 hours to testing headphones, I decided that I don't need new headphones and going to buy Rapid instead. Now, just tell me how long I need to wait. Hurry, Mr. Parawave before I change my mind :D

Other then that; seems a very stable build with lovely graphics
I can confirm it too, in the Effects section.

In my opinion this should be addressed asap with a minor update as this is a critical issue (as opposed to the issue with plugin not remembering window scaling when starting a new instance), then we can wait again whatever it takes for new features to be added.

Actually you can replace an effect with another one or just disable the effect so it doesn't affect useablity but it looks untidy.

Yeah, but since they already fixed it, they could just upload a newer version as a quick fix. Happens all the time

Don't worry, it's on the way. Probably released tomorrow as 1.5.1.
At least it's not a crashing bug, right? : )

Yes, I think I mentioned it either here either on another thread. I personally never encountered a single crash related to Rapid so kudos for that!

Same here. Such a stable synth. The FX slot bug is literally the only thing on my machine. Thumbs up

I have one issue which still happens with the last update. I use Studio One 3.5 which has a "tarck transform" function, sort of freeze. If I transform Rapid into an audio track and then back to instrument track sometimes it forgets what wavetable has been loaded into the first oscillator and loads the default one instead. i doesn't happen too often but its annoying because i usually make all sounds right in the project and don't save the presets.

Also a minor request, if possible. I really like the Polaris theme, it's my default one niw. But the effects with yellow and brown background look sort of ugly when everything else is white and blue. Could all effects have white/blue colour in this theme? Well, it may be a stupid request but except for this Polaris looks absolutely perfect.

Also, if the effect rack in Rapid is aimed at making the synth patch complete and useable without any external processing, may I suggest a transient shaper for future updates? It's very useful tool, I often use an external one, but what If i want to use Rapid's delay but need a trasient shaper before it?

You could simulate a transient shaper with an envelope , env mod the mixer gain, poly, or mod the balance fx gain,mono. Short decay with light sustain could do the job for accentuating the attack or a seq modulation could simulate an hold too.

If you want, you can modify the themes. On Windows just goto "C:\ProgramData\Parawave\Rapid\Style Data\". In this folder are all generated themes and the zip-files contain folders with all rendered images. Just extract the png files you want to modify and do waht you want with it. Replace it when you're ready and reload rapid.

Yes, that's something I also thought about and I want to build it in. I have some cool unique ideas for this feature. But I think not in the next update, because there are many other "todos" first.
