Cakewalk has announced the release of Rapture Pro, a performance synthesizer for Windows and Mac.

Cakewalk Rapture Pro

Rapture Pro is the most advanced synth Cakewalk has ever produced – combining algorithmic and sample-based synthesis in an intuitive design for musicians of any skill level. It delivers the best parts of Dimension Pro and Rapture in one instrument, perfect for your studio or live setup. Rapture Pro includes nearly 1,000 new sounds that span all music genres, and also loads every legacy sound and sample from its predecessors.

Rapture Pro is designed to adapt to your personal workflow. Composers can easily find and preview commercial-ready sounds by top designers in an intuitive new Browser. Performers can move from studio to stage with Rapture Pro’s new instrument page – a dedicated view with fast, efficient controller mapping for real-time expressiveness. And sound designers can create a signature sound with Rapture Pro’s Edit mode – which features extensive layering and mixing capabilities that let you stand out from the crowd.
