Not yet, we're looking into it. Juggling with priorities here.

I'm curious. There is this kind of "confusion" about what NKS actually is. In your opinion, what will be the big advantage of NKS support? To my knowledge it's already possible to load up Rapid in KOMPLETE KONTROL for example. And save presets, mappings and light guides.
It's just about the presets, tagging and macros right? So you got audio previews and can easily browse them in KOMPLETE KONTROL, MASCHINE and so on. Or do you expect more out of it?

If you're really impatient, I recently was in contact with the developer of Preset Magician.
PresetMagician is an application to automatically create NKS Presets from your non-NKS compatible VST plugins, as long as they are supported by PresetMagician. You can then use Maschine and Komplete Kontrol soft- and hardware to browse and load presets - including audio previews for instruments!
I haven't tested it yet, but they added support for Rapid. Maybe it's your thing.

I have enough synths. I download Rapid Demo.

I play with it. It’s good but I have enough synths.

I go to bed. I stand up. I go to work. I go home.
I try Rapid Demo. Wife says come to bed. It’s okay. I have enough synths.

I go to bed. I stand up. I go to work. I go home. I try Rapid. I love Rapid. Wife says why you always play with that shitty synth?

Just finalized divorce papers. I buy Rapid. I love Rapid.
I just wanted to say that this is the best review I ever read.

I own Rapid, Pigments, Dune 3, Hive 2. They are all amazing, but there is something special about Rapid that keeps drawing me in. I have barely explored the layer capability, but I love the sound and workflow. I can't wait for the next version of Rapid!

Cheers, Randy

Rapid is my go to synth since the day it came out. And it got even better with the 1.6 update...

I miss really only 1 thing per layer to be honest; an extra filter. I don't mean the insert filter, but a full blown second filter per layer. Other then that, this thing is finished for me.

Route a layer to another layer?

A bit awkward, I know. But better than nothing

Not sure if asked before, but can't you automate/modulate modulation depth in the matrix?

Any new skins in the works? Saw some really nice ones a few pages back are they available somewhere? Is it possible to tweak the existing ones, if so with what files?

I found the skin files, they are at the location that opens when you select menu > theme > browse.
