Following on from our introductory story a couple of weeks ago, Cakewalk tells us that Rapture Pro is now available. Here's their description of it:
Rapture Pro is the first performance synth to combine oscillator and sample-based synthesis in an intuitive design for musicians of any skill level. Simply load a sound and go! Rapture Pro's innovative Perform mode connects the studio and stage with exceptional control for real-time expressiveness and a sound library that spans all genres of music. Whether you want a classic piano sound for a smooth jazz ballad, searing rock guitars, breathtaking atmospheres, or cutting-edge, step-sequenced patterns for EDM, you'll find them all in the massive library of instruments, textures, and soundscapes.
But, Rapture Pro is far from the usual "set-and-forget" instrument. The new Edit mode gives you infinite tweakability by overlaying Rapture's signature mixing and modulation options for every program. Harness the power of sophisticated synthesis and create sounds that you'll need to hear to believe.
Pricing and Availability:
$149 ($79 if you own either Rapture, Dimension Pro, Z3TA+ or any SONAR)
