Will there be "drag and drop" modulation coming some when?
Drag and drop already exist.
Since day one.
Thanks for that. The system was not obvious at first glance but I found it now. :tu:

there are only 9 in the demo which isn't helping me.

thank you.

i have to say the decision to limit editing to the first two layers on the demo is bad. i am trying to learn how this works, or at least get the gist of it, and every cool preset i have so far wanted to go in and fiddle with has been locked out.

this means only sound designers making sounds from scratch will be able to properly grasp things from the demo. i am more casual like, i am guessing, most of the customers.

i would have preferred a 15 or 30 day full trial to this frustrating gimped route.

@rubez

everything on the other layers is the same, there's no hidden features.

I understand wanting full features in a demo, but everyone does demos differently
it's a really good synth though

yeah but it takes not inconsiderable sound design skill that i don't really have to set up each layer, so when i come across an interesting patch i'd like to dive in and see how it was configured and play with it...

alas. none of the 9 demo pads grabbed me which was what i mainly wanted it for. worth a punt if the 45% off sale rears its head again in future, i did have a positive feeling about it.

Even in the full version very few of the patches use (or need) more than a couple of layers...
Rapid is still missing a lot of fairly obviusly features to take it next level such as loading presets to layers and duplicating layers etc., I think there is also a lot more fun that can be had between layers using X/Y, sequence (one step per layer etc) but its early days and the synth has improved greatly since it came out, so I am glad I am in (@45% off) and look forward to the ride...

The factory set has some very nice pads. The demo patches do not truly show off Rapid's ability for very good sounding pads and atmospheres. I purchased Rapid just the other day, so I have only had a chance to preset surf. I have not had a chance to dive in and do my own sound design. So, take my opinion with that in mind.

Feature request: MIDI Learn presets! It would be great to be able to swap control schemes for each instance of Rapid to allow for performance, reliable MIDI CC control, etc. Being able to Save/Load presets like this would make the software much more flexible imo.

Hey there! Heard a sound demo of Rapid and I really like what I hear. I’m thinking of picking it up soon to compliment my soft synth collection. Does anyone know if it is compatible with Catalina OS?

You can copy layers from 1 instance to another and you can duplicate layers within a preset
VST developers need more motivation and best motivation is hardcore criticism! :D
