I'd argue about the "illegal" (it's not illegal, really, there just have been court rulings which resulted in the allowance of resales… not the same as a general "illegal" for companies to write that their plugins are NFR in the EULA), but, what's different with a license that gets NFR after one resale?

Well i have to say, i just tried rapid. Absolutely love it too. I still think Dune has the best sound when it comes to oscillators and filters. But rapid sounds great and has so many sound shaping options. I love the workflow of rapid, nice drag and drop.

Also you know what this synth has that almost no other synth has? Multi stage envelopes that have SWING!!!!! This is so important and useful for many electronic styles (house/techno etc)
So many synths have these cool multi-env/sequencers that i can use because my track has so much swing in it. Using the sequencers in rapid is a pure joy. What a synth.

Shame it costs so much, but you do get a lot for your money i suppose. Will keep my eye out on here for a used one!
total agree but why does it cost too much? other vsts are more expensive and dont have all the stuff rapid has. imho rapid could be more expensive. quality, so many cool features, multisamples, wavetables etc and a mb saturator (there are mb saturator on market as fx plugins which cost 200$ and rapid has one included).

Sorry, to be clear, i didnt mean *too* much. I don't think that at all, you are quite right about other synths being vastly more expensive. I just meant it was a lot for me at this point, thats all.
I think its a brilliant product. I will just wait for a sale. Gutted i missed the one just gone, but i had no idea about this synth.

Those who got the 40% off deal got an insane bargain. That's a LOT of synth for the money!!

If i had known about this i might not have bought so much other stuff over the holidays! really impressed. Great workflow too, its so quick to get really complex sounds going.

Rapid or Pigments, that's the question...

What kind of stuff do you make? Both great synths, different capabilities. Arturia is a beauty to program and has some really interesting oscillator modulations, Rapid is a multi-layer beast, which also has a great layout.
