Zvork releases LeSpace multi-echo Rack Extension

Related: , , , Posted in news on Jul 28, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Zvork Audio has announced the release of LeSpace, a multi-echo Rack Extension for Propellerhead Reason.

Zvork LeSpace

LeSpace is a delay-based effect with a particular emphasis on rhythmic multi-tap echoes and increased stereo width. With six individual delay lines, each with individual controls for pan, volume, decay, length diffusion and tone, a wide variety of effects can be programmed from simple echoes to reverbs and choruses. But most of all, LeSpace lets you create complex delay based rhythms that can enhance your leads or drum loops with a great sense of stereo space.

The device includes six parallel echo lines with independent tempo-synced or free-running delay lengths. Each echo line has 16 programmable delay taps easily programmable with a step sequencer like interface. Furthermore, band pass tone filters inside the feedback loops enable extra control along with separate pan, volume and diffusion.

The Rack Extension is available for purchase for 39 EUR / $49 USD.

Nucleus SoundLab releases Analog Theory for MonoPoly

Nucleus SoundLab has announced the release of Analog Theory, a new ReFill for the MonoPoly synthesizer Rack Extension instrument from Korg.

Nucleus SoundLab Analog Theory

Virtual Analog has come a long way. Take Korg’s MonoPoly Rack Extension for example. Not only does it replicate the capabilities and sounds of this classic hardware synthesizer, but it exceeds the original with features like true polyphony and unison. In fact, MonoPoly is the perfect starting point for creating next-gen electronica timbres in Reason! It’s only drawback is that it doesn’t come packed with any Combinator patches whatsoever. Let’s fix that, shall we? Introducing our latest ReFill – featuring MonoPoly – Analog Theory.

Analog Theory is a ReFill that pushes the boundaries of what is possible with Virtual Analog in the Reason environment. Our experienced sound design team has fused the classic power of MonoPoly with the flexibility of the Reason Combinator to create some very unique sounds. MonoPoly is filled to the electronic brim with thick chordal layers, expressive plucks, dubstep growlers, and gated atmospheres.

You won’t be disappointed with Analog Theory’s attention to detail. All the standard highlights of Nucleus SoundLab ReFills are still present: Unique Combinators with unique Combinator controls; MonoPoly patches that make up each Combinator are individually available; full categorization of both Combinators and device patches; careful volume-balancing for every single patch. Power-up your music with Analog Theory today!

Analog Theory features

  • 113 unique Combinators across ten categories.
  • 163 MonoPoly device patches.
  • 2 demo songs packed inside the ReFill.
  • All Combinator rotaries/buttons/modwheel uniquely mapped.
  • Patches designed by veteran Reason sound designers.
  • Requires: MonoPoly Rack Extension.

The Analog Theory ReFill is available for purchase for $39 USD.

With an on-board sequencer, as well as a multi-mode filter, LFO, modulation envelope, and more, Chip64 brings true chip emulation to your rack.

The Rack Extension is available for purchase for 32 EUR.

Synapse Audio releases Ninety phaser Rack Extension for Reason

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Jun 19, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Synapse Audio has announced the release of Ninety, a Rack Extension software emulation of a legendary 1970s phaser.

Synapse Audio Ninety

What makes this phaser unique is the feedback path, which gives the sound a very distinctive character, unlike any other analog phaser. Our emulation employs a zero-delay feedback network, a technique popularized by recent synthesizers, and particularly well suited to emulate analog feedback loops.

The original unit is a mono-in mono-out device with only a Rate knob and a Color switch. The Ninety phaser adds stereo processing, a stereo LFO with adjustable spread and a dry/wet control. The color switch is replaced with a knob for increased versatility. The “Ultra” switch upgrades the network to a 6-stage phaser, allowing to create entirely new sounds not possible with the vintage original.

Ninety for Reason is available for purchase for 35 EUR.

Audio Poison releases Strontium-90 RF Modulator for Reason

Related: , , , Posted in news on Jun 16, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Audio Poison has announced the release of Strontium-90, radio frequency modulator effect for Reason.

Audio Poison Strontium-90

Strontium-90 RF Modulator is a rack extension designed to make sounds more radioactive by adding modulatable textures and thickness to a sound. It can be used to highlight the upper components of percussion, or radiate a bass line with amplitude, phase, frequency and ring modulators.

The radio frequency modulators can be routed with either invertible post-or-combined filtering with variable series/parallel switching. It also includes both an optionally host-synchronizable, or loosely timed, envelope and low frequency oscillator, common to musical synthesis, to allow a user to further extend their sound. The VCO of these modulation controls can be sent, in parallel, to all of the multi-variate control knobs pertaining to both the RF modulator and internal filter.

Additionally the low frequency oscillator has both host-synchronized rate and phase positioning controls with a preference as to whether it oscillates with either half-rectified, bipolar or unipolar waveforms. The phase control is truncated into steps of pi/4 increments (-/+), and will always automatically reset every instance where the current project position resets to the left region indicator to absolutely ensure the consistency of the timing for the modulation controls.

Strontium-90 is available for purchase for $39 USD.

Rack Extension

Propellerhead has announced that the Rack Extension plug-in platform is continuing to rapidly expand, with over 230 Rack Extensions now available for Reason 7.1.

The online Rack Extension store now includes a broad selection of virtual instruments, effects, and audio utilities that blend seamlessly in the Reason rack, offering musicians great sound, smooth workflow, and rock-solid stability.

Additionally, to help customers and developers understand what is involved in creating Rack Extensions, Propellerhead has released an interview with Rob Papen, the acclaimed software designer behind the some of the highest-selling Rack Extension instruments.

“Thanks to participation from the industry’s leading software developers, and an overwhelmingly positive response from Reason customers, the Rack Extension platform is expanding faster than we ever anticipated,” stated Timothy Self, Propellerhead VP of Product Marketing. “By offering developers a turnkey solution for building, marketing, and selling Rack Extensions, we’re helping them to reach the vast Reason user community—while simultaneously giving Reason customers access to more inspiring instruments and effects so they can take their music even further.”

Veteran software designer Rob Papen was one of the first developers to embrace the Rack Extension platform, and his products like Predator-RE, SubBoomBass-RE and others rank among the best-selling and highest-rated in the Propellerhead online store. “The Rack Extension platform significantly expands our potential customer base,” said Papen. “The Propellerhead user community is very large and it’s exciting to make Rob Papen soft synths and effects available right inside the Reason rack.

“Developing Rack Extensions saves us lots of time since Propellerhead handles the marketing support, sales, and distribution. Since the Rack Extensions we create work across Mac and PC, we just have to create one version of the software and Propellerhead makes it available on both operating systems. We don’t have to worry about incompatibilities and differences between hosts. Plus, the Rack Extensions we create are forward-compatible with future versions of Reason, which lowers the burden on our development team.”

Rob Papen plans on continuing to develop innovative sonic tools for the Rack Extension platform. “The new Rack Extension platform offers Reason users a huge advantage,” he concluded. “The consistent workflow, seamless operation, and legendary ease of use open up a whole new world of possibilities. Everything fits together, making the rack more than the sum of its parts. I’m intrigued by the challenge of creating something new especially for Reason—something that will grow in Reason in its own way.”
