“Rapture Session is a slimmed down version of their fully-loaded Rapture Pro virtual instrument suite. And basically, for those looking to spend a tiny amount of cash for a huge library of sounds, you’re in for a treat.”
Highly Recommended – Performer Magazine

“Rapture Pro’s biggest strength lies in the excellent included library and its ability to let you tweak and modulate that to a massive degree.”

“There’s enough here to keep a dedicated sound designer busy for months if not years.”

Rapture Pro

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.
