RAPID is a modern polyphonic hybrid synthesizer designed to bring together fast workflow and powerful synthesis techniques. The unique layer engine that powers RAPID lets you shape and customize all aspects of your sounds, resulting in dynamic and fat patches, ready for production, performance or simply inspiration.
With the latest version 1.8.0. a new bonus sound package called Granular Elements is now included for free.
Since version 1.7.0. the additional plugin RAPID FX is included. This allows the use as an effect unit on DAW mixer, insert and send channels and opens up a whole new dimension of sound processing possibilities.
