"Deceptively" is the more common collocate used with the adjective "simple."

There are loads of examples of this term when cross referenced with "computer software" and "effects." Here's one:

Amazingly simple

Rasend schnell could be translated as lightning fast. athough it doesn't say Blitzschnell. I don't think "racing fast" exists in english.

Verbluffen means to amaze or astound. not to deceive. Asoundingly simple could also be a solution
