Rapture's High Resolution Power

 

At the heart of Rapture's sound engine are powerful, multi-mode wavetable oscillators. These pristinely produced wavetables provide a virtually endless array of sonic possibilities. The high-resolution anti-aliasing SFZ-based engine ensures that every note of every voice will be pure and vibrant.

 

 

Ignite Your Sound 

 

Rapture sounds like no other synth, offering brilliant sound design capabilities with patches that blend up to six different Elements. And out of the box you get a stunning collection of over 600 programs including Basses, Leads, Pads, Arpeggios, Textures, Electronic Percussion and Sequences.

 

The unrivaled, non-aliasing Rapture engine, exclusive to Cakewalk Instruments, is at the heart of their unparalleled sound quality and capabilities for creative expression. This engine provides rich resampling and synthesis, while simultaneously giving access to extended performance characteristics of sound programs.

 

Multifaceted Instrument Engine

 

Rapture's engine is multifunctional, providing capabilities for several types of synthesis under one hood, including multisample rendering, wavetable synthesis, REX playback and manipulation, waveguide synthesis, and an extensive DSP library of effects.

 

Unparalleled Sound Quality

 

Like all digital instruments, Rapture’s audio engine relies on extensive audio resampling in order to generate musical instrument sounds. Rapture's resampling leads the industry in clean, anti-aliased real-time sound production for multisample audio playback. (Aliasing is unfavorable digital distortion inherent in the process of resampling).

 

Rapture’s wavetable synthesis provides a resampling technique, which comes even closer to anti-aliasing perfection than multisample rendering. Wavetable synthesis utilizes a single, inaudible, one-cycle waveform, and through analysis and resampling, synthesizes this sound across the entire MIDI key-range. This process is similar in some respects to the propagation of simple waveforms found in analog modes of synthesis.

 

Breathe Life Into Your Sound

 

 

Rapture’s Step Generators breathe life into your sound, allowing for dramatic trance gate effects and percussive rhythms. With graphical step sequencing of sound parameters, Rapture provides a modern extension to traditional envelopes and LFOs, allowing you creative control of Pitch, Filters Amplitude and other parameters. 

 

 

Rapture's non-aliasing resampling engine technology sets a new standard for sound quality, and produces pristine, high-resolution rendering and playback. Its advanced modulation capabilities include over 40 Step Generators per patch, providing an intuitive interface for generating rhythmic sequences.
