Parawave Audio released Rapid, a modern polyphonic hybrid synthesizer VST instrument plug-in for Windows designed to bring together fast workflow and powerful synthesis techniques. The unique layer engine that powers Rapid lets users shape and customize all aspects of their sounds, resulting in dynamic and fat patches, ready for production, performance or simply inspiration.


  • 8 separate synthesis layers, each with 3 oscillators, filter, insert-effect, modulators, arpeggiator, effect stack and routing matrix.
  • Oscillators with morphable wavetables & multi-samples.
