The synth itself is fantastic. The possibilities are massive and the FM synthesis or resynthesis as well as graintable synthesis is massive despite the low CPU. The presets that are included sound highly professional.
However, I have to deduct a star for the worst support in the world, which is also sometimes very personally insulting. Manufacturers don't like hearing about bugs or features, and updates and essential bug fixes are unfortunately very rare.

I like the idea of having just one synthesizer and learning how to use it really well, rather than jumping back and forth between a bunch of synthesizers and using them all poorly. I have tried all the synthesizers everyone talks about, but for me Rapid just meets all the criteria: a synth that does everything and does it well! The fact that you can use Rapid as an effects plugin makes it even more versatile! Rapid replaces a dozen synthesizers and effect plugins and is extremely light on CPU! The best value for money.Read Review

This synth appeared for me out of nowhere when a friend got it. I have never paid this much for VST synth before but this is incredible and I'm very glad I got it! There are so many complex options but they are so straight forward it remains approachable and intuitive to work with. No synth before had let me create great sounds by end of day one of this high quality. The workflow some of the best I ever worked with. The built in effects are awesome too, the reverb sounds so good I end up using Rapid FX instead of my usual reverb and effects.
5/5 Really good synth that out of nowhere became my endgame.Read Review

For me, this is the best synth in the world. I have other synths like Serum, Massive, Avenger. But Rapid has become my go to synth. The workflow and the quick and amazing results that you get from this synth is just awesome.Read Review
