What is 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. Harness the power of sophisticated synthesis and create sounds that you'll need to hear to believe.

New filters, modulatable waveshapers, flexible effects, expressive control and a gorgeous new interface make Z3TA+ 2 one seriously powerful synth. It’s not often that a soft synth can be called a classic, but in the case of Z3TA+ it’s definitely appropriate.

Used on countless tracks over the past decade, Z3TA+’s distinctive sound has been a staple of electronic artists the world over.

 

Bigger and Badder

Z3TA+ 2 has a completely redesigned interface that inspires performance and makes sound design clear and comfortable while preserving that signature sound that has made it a favorite of top producers and musicians around the world.

Z3TA Filters

New Filter Types

The Filter section has 4 new filter types bringing the total to 14. Both filters are now readily accessible and visible simultaneously with Separation control for tweaking resonance peaks on stacked filters.

 

Z3TA Waveshaper Modes

New Waveshaping Modes

Fold: Folds the entire waveform over itself by progressively swapping the left and right halves. 
Spectrum: Harmonic levels wander in alternating directions creating a complex phaser-like quality.
Random All: Creates continuously random variations of all harmonic levels.

With over 2,000 included patches, organizing the patch library is more important than ever. Find what you need with the all new patch browser allowing organization by library, bank, and patch. Since Z3TA+ 2 gave you more presets than you could handle, we wanted to make it easier to find the thousands of presets you have by adding a built-in search button.
