Parawave Audio updates Rapid Synthesizer to 1.6.0 - Adds new Oscillator Inserts and Effects

Parawave Audio

Parawave Audio has updated Rapid to version 1.6.0 and added new oscillator inserts and effect slots.

PM from Oscillator is a new insert effect which is designed to provide a way to create "FM" sounds using another wavetable oscillator as a modulation source. There is also a new RM from Oscillator and Feedback PM insert.

The Glitch is an effect which records sound input and allows the processing to jump back in time. The four sequence modulators are choose-able as modulation sources whereas the current selected one tells the Glitch how far it has to jump back.

There's an up to 4-Band dividable Multiband Saturator with sixteen switchable per-band types to apply dynamic and modulation processing. Asymmetric distortions, hard non linearities, bit crush, feedback, ring modulators and even limiters are available.

Tunable delay times with an additional Tonal Delay allow for very short and percussive feedbacks and echoes - ideal to colorize drum loops or just reshape sounds.

A Tapestop processor can hold and continue sounds at arbitrary positions.
