or you could do a group buy and hand it out to DIMA .

very surprised that no group has ever been able to work this one out. there's no ilock or elicenser. just a serial number.
  Member 11.12.2019 155

Nah, no team takes money to not release anything. But most teams have an internal codex to not crack stuff from small developers for a period of time....
But maybe this one just didn't get cracked because no one knew it. I for example never heard of this plugin before but I like the demo a lot.

BUT the main reason in most cases is:
No one supplied the retail installer and most teams aren't crazy rich to buy it just to get their hands on the retail package.

What you can try is: You buy it and send it to some people (without customer informations and also without your serial key - just the installer) and then you'll see what happens (or not). A group buy also could solve that issue.

There is not such codex, that's nonsense. Software from small Devs get cracked all the time.

This is one interesting synth.Hope they make it available for us at Audioz.
  Member 20.08.2014 51
Mirko worked very hard on this synthesizer. Although I am a lover of freebies, I hope that Mirko will earn money from sales and continue to delight with his products. No need to crack. It's worth buying. It is not as expensive as the Nexus (greedy RefX !!!) and is often discounted.

IF SOMEONE HAVE the Full Version PLEASE PM ME!!!!!

  Member 18.04.2019 3 29
They already cracked it, they are just keeping it internal. If you don't believe it, then you can ask any member of audiosex who have biosthutool.
  Member 27.01.2021 1
I want this so bad! Hope they will release it soon
  Member 18.04.2019 3 29
I think we should consider this request as dead because even if rapid is already cracked, the members here are not gonna provide it.
Bitter it is but that's the truth.
  Moderator 21.01.2012 1377 12697

Bitter it is but that's the truth.

How do you know? What's your source?

Stop spreading lies. You have no clue if it had been cracked, it would be here already.
  Member 18.04.2019 3 29
I read one of audiosex discussion about BIOSTHUTOOL. I don't know what is it but one member said that he got refx nexus 3 and parawave rapid cracked throught it 1 day ago. Around One week after that discussion, nexus 3 appeared on AZ for download. That means the member telling about cracked plugins was right (in turn that means rapid is also cracked) but rapid never appeared here. So i deduced that it is not going to appear here.
Only the person can tell truth or lie who have access to BIOSTHUTOOL.
  Moderator 21.01.2012 1377 12697
BIOSTHUTOOL was an invention from The Pirat, a bad joke to troll people who are desperate to have new toys, while they have 2000 to do music with.
This have never existed...

If you dont know about something, dont write things like if you are sure of it.
  Member 18.04.2019 3 29
If that's the case, i take my words back. Sorry for the inconvenience. Sorry
  Moderator 21.01.2012 1377 12697
I can tell you for sure, because The Pirate told me It was just a heavy joke.
