I held off purchasing Rapture for about 2 years after it debut in the soft synth world, however after viewing Computer Music's recent Top 10 Software Synthesizers special video with Rapture coming in at 7, I decided to go ahead and buy it. At first glance right off the bat after I purchased it I could tell it was going to be a great software, and it ran great on my mac without a problem. I haven’t had a crash year, I havent tried it with pc yet, so im not sure if it will run good or not. I own so many different softwares, but this one stands out from a lot of the ones that I have, and the best part is that this one is actually cheaper than a lot of other softwares that I have. Doesn’t take up too much space on the mac either, got to love that!

I was astounded at the extremely wide palette of sounds that Rapture offered. Not to mention the mind-blowing sound-shaping capabilities that it offered! It'll probably take you a whole lifetime to play with all the sounds in Rapture!

The sounds were absolutely full and rich, and lives up to the hype that its very inspiring with sounds like no other soft synth out there. I got engrossed experimenting and doing minor tweaking of the sounds to suit my taste. But really; not much editing is needed for someone like me because the presets already sound great!

My only complaint is that there is no defined arp section or effect plugin that you can insert a sound into. I believe I got more bang for the buck in Rapture than I did for Spectrasonics' Atmosphere synth module. The Cakewalk Rapture has good stereo image very full and wide. Still learning how to use it. Haven’t read the Manual yet but so Far I think this is a Keeper.
