TIPS for awesome synth
Cakewalk Rapture is one of the excelent synths I own. For hip-hop that sorta sexy smooth hard sound ow ow I like it alot. For that trance grit hard lead it is excels as well. I imagine this beast of a synth can do very well at pasa with its 6 oscilators with is its own LFO, Detune, cutoff, basically all the parameters, even arps, which I havent got the hang of on this synth yet but is drawable and easy in THAT respect.
Its ADSR is drawable and DOES have release. BUt in order to activate release you need to left click above the ADSR near level" and choose activate sustain node". Another tip is to Correctly install Rapture. First install the first version, then you MUST THEN LATER also on top of it add the update. It will not ask to reauthorize, hence the first is already installed and needed (by the way).
In stand alone mode the frquency is show when twisting the dials. BUt perhaps the reason it is not on the new 1.22 is that I do not have quicktime installed for my ABleton Live DAW.
ALL in all this is a great synth especially with my added waveforms pack. The synth is mildly hard sounding and very analog. WOuld be good for rock as well. THICK.
