Parawave's new softsynth promises fat sounding patches without much hassle

Parawave has dropped a video trailer that shows off an upcoming softsynth called Rapid, a polyphonic hybrid synthesizer designed to "bring together fast workflow and powerful synthesis techniques."

Currently there are very little details on the synth, but by the footage it looks as though layering up sounds is very much on the menu, with what looks up to eight layers available for building up your patches.

What we can be certain of is that Rapid will include 650+ presets, 250+ wavetables and 190+ multi-samples.

According to a recent post on twitter, it is hoped Rapid will be made available in the next few days. For more information head on over to the Parawave website.

Check out the video below for 13 minutes of serious EDM-tastic preset action.

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
