Sylenth1, Serum, Pigments, there are many flagship synthesizers. One of the more unknown pearls in the synth plugin world is Rapid from Parawave Audio. A multi-engine Synthesizer with an impressive set of features.
Shortly before the end of the year, there is another nice update for the synth from Germany. The developers have today released Rapid 1.8.5, a free update with several new features.
Parawave Audio Rapid Synthesizer 1.8.5
Rapid 1.8.5 introduces two new effect processors. Chorus X is a multi-stage dual chorus with a deep engine. It can create classic vintage-sounding ensemble chorus effects but also phasing fx, small plate reverbs, and much more. It comes with various parameters that give you to option to fully customize the chorus including full control over the chorus stages and more. The stereo visualization of each stage gives you a good idea of what the overall result will sound like. Definitely not another basic chorus effect.
Vintage Character For Rapid Synthesizer
Vintagizer, yeah that’s the name, is a new processor with which you can add a vintage timbre to your sounds. It is capable of recreating the behavior and sound character of old devices such as vinyl, cassette tapes, wire recorders, and much more. 24 different device models are available and with the loudspeaker, drift, artifact, tube, and noise controls you craft your own vintage tone. It’s a great tool to incorporate nostalgic sound timbres in your modern sounds.
The Rapid sound browser also got a major upgrade. It now offers different views and a keyword search function that simplify and speed up the sound management. In addition, multiple tags and other filters can be applied to quickly find presets for your purpose.
Each preset can be marked as a favorite or added to a custom preset collection to enhance the workflow with many presets and projects. Moreover, the browser got many small features like renaming and duplication of presets. It also includes now drag and drop support for presets.
Another big news is the native support of the latest Apple M1 macs. Last but not least, it includes new presets for the effects and bug fixes.
