Rapture Pro is Cakewalk's latest do-it all instrument which packs impressive synthesis features together with a large sound library (just under 10GB).

Based on the best bits of the original Rapture and also Dimension Pro, Rapture Pro throws pretty much everything into the mix. Combining modelled Oscillators together with multi-sample sources, it offers a huge array of patch possibilities.

With a 6 -element architecture, you really can pile up the sound sources.

So, how does it all stack up?

Tosh from Wij Productions takes a look.
