Touch The Universe releases the Northern Lights Soundset for Parawave's Rapid after a short hiatus from its initial release. The soundset has been updated and includes more presets. The soundsdet contains 214 presets and is suitable for nearly any contempory electronic music genre.

The highlights of the soundset includes the leads, which were programmed with a creative use of vibrato and modulation assignment so they can almost appear to be singing to you. They can be silky smooth or very edgy with a very clear distortion. A lot of them have filters cleverly assigned to macros and modulation wheel to create a formant like effect, which gives a really unique and modern feel to the leads. Some of the patches also utilize the formant wavetables, combining the creative filter formant effect with bonefied formant tables, creatively blending the best of both worlds -- lots of formant action. Rapid really excels in this category.

In addition, the soundset comes with some very beautiful and complex pads with rhythmic and lush textures, all multi-layered and with modulations built into the patch and assigned to modulation sources and macros. Playing some chords with them will create a very chilled out and unique atmosphere, opposed to traditional sustained pads.

Also, the plucks are very unique and a lot have a plucky vocal quality to them. All heavily assigned and designed to play beautifully with a keyboard with creative and finely tuned velocity settings, spread throughout the layers. Likewise, the basses are also designed for playability and range from deep analogy through snappy digital basses. There are some really nice exotic, oriental type formant bass patch showcases I look forward to sharing.

One of the great things about Rapid is that samples can be loaded, and it comes with a lot of wavetable substitutes for traditional instruments. I had a great time making some very realistic cello and vocal patches from the wavetables, and blended them in with there sampled counterparts to create an interesting blend of realistic instruments with purely synthesized pseudo counterparts.
