A cut-down but fully func­tional ver­sion of Cake­walk’s flag­ship Rap­ture Pro sam­ple­based synth, Rap­ture Ses­sion costs $30 in the shops, but is yours for free only with this is­sue of Com­puter Mu­sic!

Rap­ture Ses­sion (PC/Mac, VST3/AU/AAX) is pow­ered by a 3.2GB bank of mul­ti­sam­ples and waveta­bles, all taken di­rectly from the full 11GB Rap­ture Pro li­brary, cov­er­ing ev­ery­thing from pianos and gui­tars to synths, strings, at­mos­pheres and more. The easy-to-use in­ter­face is de­signed to make brows­ing and tweak­ing of the pre­set sounds fast and pro­duc­tive, boil­ing the pow­er­ful edit­ing func­tion­al­ity of Rap­ture Pro down to a macro­driven front-end, com­plete with hard­wired X/Y Pads for real-time per­for­mance. And while you don’t get ac­cess to the deep syn­the­sis and mix­ing fa­cil­i­ties of its Pro sib­ling, you do get the Vec­tor Mixer, for sweep­ing around the up-to-six El­e­ments that make up each pre­set Pro­gram.

To get up and run­ning, sim­ply regis­ter the code 3327-46FD-8F9A-BBC7 on the land­ing page at www.cake­walk.com/CM250. With that done, you’re ready to down­load Cake­walk Com­mand Cen­ter and in­stall Rap­ture Ses­sion. Let’s take a closer look…
