Propellerhead releases Instrument Development Toolkit for Rack Extensions

Rack Extension

Propellerhead has announced the release of the Instrument Development Toolkit (IDT) for Rack Extensions, making it easy for sample library producers and instrument designers to build and sell Rack Extensions for the award-winning Reason platform.

The new toolkit enables developers to create stunning instruments and bring them to market with minimum effort and maximum support.

“We created the Propellerhead Rack Extension plug-in platform to enable developers to go from initial idea to completed selling product faster and easier,” stated Mats Karlöf, Manager Third Party Developer Relations. “Now, with the Instrument Development Toolkit, it’s easy to build powerful Rack Extension instruments for Reason, even without prior coding experience. The recently released A-List series and Jiggery Pokery instruments demonstrate that developers can easily create Rack Extensions that sound incredible and work flawlessly within Reason.”

Since its release in 2012, Propellerhead’s Rack Extension (RE) platform has emerged as a powerful audio plug-in format, with over 800 active developers and nearly 250 instruments and effects now available via the Propellerhead online store. Rack Extensions integrate seamlessly into the Reason rack, combining excellent sound, smooth workflows, and rock-solid stability with the intuitive routing, automation, deep editing, and flexibility that Reason users expect. Propellerhead’s online store manages all trials, sales, distribution, updates and license management of all RE’s, serving as a single point of contact for every Reason user.

The new Instrument Development Toolkit makes it possible for developers to easily build professional sample-based instruments without writing C++ code. Current Kontakt and NN-XT instrument designers can import their libraries into IDT, greatly accelerating the process of developing instruments. IDT’s vast built-in effect library, full-featured sampler engine, flexibility and powerful scripting language facilitate the creation of one-of-a-kind instruments.

The Instrument Development Toolkit is now available for download and immediate development.

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.
