And once again, Rapid nails it. Blown away, and can't wait to play with it.

I don't own this synth, but, I must say that i'm quite impressed how much stuff was added to it in such a short amount of time. Other devs (I won't name names...) promise a lot, and yet, even after years, there's no sign of these promised features, but instead, the synths have seen a lot of updates with micro additions or bug fixes only. Quite impressed by the pace of development here. And, the "new" GUI really looks fantastic.
Plugins and a DAW. On a operating system. Which runs on a computer.

Hi Tony. I'm aware of sales in the past with 40% discount, not sure if they ever do any lower than that. Gets the price down to near the €100 mark which is pretty good I think. It's a very powerful synth with great sound and the CPU usage is much better than I would have expected when I tried the demo, even on my old 2013 Macbook. Lifetime free updates as well according the FAQ.

Personally I think these granular demos sound really great.

Edit - just did a quick google and found references to 45% off.

I’m having problems using the demo with FL Studio. It often loads very slowly or even crashes whole FL Studio. But sometimes it works just fine. Anyone else having issues when using with FL?

Looks interesting - just a bit worried if it won’t work with FL properly.

please check also tp add GRAIN ENV :)
There's a morphable grain envelope with various kinds of grain shapes.

Here's a first audio preview of the sounds you can expect from it.

Sounds incredible - it obviously works, and there is evidence it has been tested.

As far I can make out - it must be ready for release :hihi: :hihi: :hihi: :tu: :tu: :tu:

I guess there are no excuses left for not getting RAPID. Not even GAS is a valid excuse :tu: :shrug:

one thing i dont like so far, is there a way to set DEFAULT importstyle? cause every time you have to choose how to resynthesize?
i hope with granular synth you just can drag and drop instantly without anyy extra menu :) also keeping settings like start, end loops etc.

Importing everything into Rapid is very painful, have to mention. Please, allow to import folders and add drag & drop features.
