Numerical Sound has released RiVerb, a reverb Rack Extension effect for Propellerhead Reason.
Numerical Sound RiVerb: Up-Front Spaces brings world-class reverb to Rack Extension shop. It is both the first convolution reverb Rack Extension and one of the first reverbs anywhere dedicated to the up-front impact of real small venues.
The 36 spaces range from the sound of small professional studios to recital halls and the more intimate scoring stages. The spaces feature rich detail that algorithmic reverbs can’t emulate. The Etched Early Reflections, Spectral Weighting and True Ambience content give it a sound unlike any other convolution reverb.
36 Reverb Impulses from Real Venus: From recording studios of every size to clubs, recital halls, theaters and even scoring stages.
Audiophile Design: Supports 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96 and 192 KHz sample rates, with accurate detail, ultra-low noise floor and utmost transparency.
Timbral Weighting: Several impulses augment the space’s sound using spectral weighting on the low end or top end to enhance and change the overall sonic character of a track.
High Density Impulse Tails: Rich, complex sound without repetition or flutter.
Easy to Use Controls: Impulse List, Stereo Width, Gain, Pan and Dry/Wet controls make it easy to mix and shape the sounds.
High Impact “Etched” Early Reflections: Up-Front Spaces has some of the most clearly defined and articulated early reflections of any reverb product, making it perfect for rhythmic material and other sounds with strong attacks.
True Ambience: Unlike many competing algorithmic and convolution reverb products, RiVerb: Up-Front Spaces renders a fully differentiated wet sound, giving it a wider sense of space. In many other products the sound is less expansive and varied because too much of the direct signal ends up in the “wet” sound.
Predator-RE is a killer synthesizer that combines inspiring preset’s and first-class features to make this your ‘go-to’ synthesizer for contemporary music production. The user interface has been designed so that all controls are visible on screen, making it fun and incredibly easy-to-use.
Rob Papen’s Predator-RE gets some new graphics in version 1.0.7.
The latest versions inspire musicians to create more and better music with deep, streamlined mixing and a complete rack for all types of instruments.
Reason’s renowned music-centric design focuses around a virtual rack of software instruments, effects and processors connected to a world-class mixing console. Users can go from ideas to music, literally in minutes, designing their of the dreams in the process while never stopping their creative flow. Now, version 7 offers integration of all instruments—in and out of the “box”—with MIDI out. Automatic audio slicing and audio quantize enable quick fixes or style changes of recorded performances—even conversion of those recordings into REX loops for further creative possibilities in the rack. For mixing, Propellerhead adds a spectrum analyzer with visual EQ controls to “see” the audio and tweak equalization settings of any tracks in mixer. One-click group and parallel mix channels go beyond what is possible in physical large format mixers—instantly exposing the world of modern parallel effects and automation. And to inspire, Reason 7 makes importing audio from users’ music libraries and the web with support for mp3, aac, wma and more a snap. An enhanced Factory Sound Bank comes with tons of new loops and drum kits supplying the latest sounds ready to be thrown into tracks.
Audiomatic Retro Transformer takes its place alongside over 100 third-party instrument, effect and utility Rack Extensions (RE) already available for Reason. Designed for use on any instrument, channel or even group mix, Audiomatic oozes character to the sound. Inspired by retro phone apps, Audiomatic, with 16 snapshots going from Vinyl and VHS tape to PVC pipe and Gadget, immediately evokes an auditory mood, place or time. The RE is included free in Reason version 7 but is available to owners of Reason 6.5 and Reason Essentials too, as a separate purchase. As with any Rack Extension, all users can try a fully functional version free for 30 days.
Reason 7 & Reason Essentials 2 are now available at the following suggested retail pricing:

Soundcells has announced the release of its Thor Source v4 ReFill for Propellerhead Reason featuring the sounds of the Source synthesizer by Moog.
Thor’s modular design gave us the chance to rebuild the Source’s details with great accuracy. Then we copied our favorite Source patches with great ease into Thor and after this we managed to take those sounds numerous steps further. The sounding results however stayed amazingly close to the Source’s character. In this ReFill’s documentary folder you’ll find proof of this. Thor makes the Source polyphonic and velocity sensitive as well. By now you’ll understand that this ReFill goes way beyond only emulating the past.
Thor Source offers you deep and fat basses, retro and nu style leads, wonderfull keyboard sounds, mouth watering pads, analog drums and more. Version 2 & 3 added four sampled raw oscillator settings from the original synthesizer as also fully sampled Moog Source sounds, new combinator patches and new backdrops. Version 4 adds 15 new combinator patches, 10 new rex loops and a reworked folder structure for a much easier use of this ReFill.
Thor Source v4 features
229 combinator patches.
25 original documentary patches each in 4 versions.
74 combinator patches making full use of Reason’s devices.
55 combinator patches based on the sampled raw oscillator settings and the fully sampled ones.
40 new rex loops.
370+ Moog Source samples in 44Khz / 24 bit.
The ReFill is available to purchase for the introductory price of 17.90 EUR until March 31st, 2013 (regular 24.90 EUR).
