Kuassa releases EVE-AT1 & EVE-AT4 Rack Extensions for Reason

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Apr 11, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Kuassa has announced the release of EVE-AT1 and EVE-AT4 classic british equalizers, two new Rack Extension plug-ins for Propellerhead Reason 6.5 and later.

Offered at $39 $29 (Anniversary Sale, 25% discount still applies until April 21st) each, both AT1 and AT4 were inspired by the design of the legendary Neve* 1081 and 1084 that are known for their clear, smooth, and very musical characteristics.

We are thrilled by the sound and present these EQs as a modern tribute, designed with simplicity and clarity in mind for immediate productivity. Although they share certain tonal characteristics, the EVE-AT1 and EVE-AT4 reveal their differences in the details.

Kuassa EVE-AT1 and EVE-AT4

EVE-AT1/AT4 features

  • EVE-AT1: is a 4-band parametric equalizer with an additional high-pass and low-pass filter. Inspired by the EQ section of a renowned British Classic –the Neve* 1081 –this equalizer delivers a clear, smooth, and musical sound to shape your tracks. The EVE-AT1 posseses an additional parametric band with expanded Q bandwidth selection in the low-mid and high-mid frequency ranges as compared to the EVE-AT4. In addition, the AT1 impelements a different high-pass and low-pass filter, giving the AT1 a slightly more conventional frequency response in these areas. These characteristics mean the EVE-AT1 is suitable for a broad range of musical applications, offering flexibility, versatility and all-round utility.
  • EVE-AT4: EVE-AT4 is a 3-band equalizer with an additional high-pass and low-pass filter. Designed as a tribute to the EQ section of the Neve* 1084, which was created as the successor to the legendary Neve* 1073. Although the EVE-AT4 possesses fewer bands, a smaller frequency selection palette, and less Q bandwidth selection options as compared to the EVE-AT1, its strength lies in its unique filter implementation, producing an idiosyncratic frequency response not present on the EVE-AT1. The result is a particular tonal character; the sound and tonal shape of its original incarnation is a hallmark of many classic recordings from the 70s.

The EVE-AT series Rack Extensions are available from the Propellerhead shop.

Audiotechracy releases free guitar patches for Reason

Audiotechracy has announced a collection of free guitar patches for Propellerhead Reason.

Audiotechracy Guitar Patches for Reason

After the success of the ‘Rock and Metal Drums ReFill Vol.1′ that I released a while back I have decided to follow that up with a set of guitar patches for you all to try. Rather that releasing this in the form of a ReFill, this time the download is in the form of just a Reason file with the patches all lined up in it for you.

The reason for doing this is that some of the patches are wah devices and include the automation lanes for the wah effect within the file. Also, whilst all of the patches are based in a Reason audio track, some of them use audio tracks paired up with Propellerhead Combinator patches built on the Line6 guitar rig (I’ve used the ‘Thrash Metal Rig’ one, but toned it down a bit). I could have built all the effects into Combinator patches and then released that as just a single unit, but I wanted to make these patches as accessible as possible to everyone. So no loading up patches or connecting things up to different audio channels then having to automate the wah yourself.

With these patches you just plug your guitar in, select the patch you want and off you go. If you want to then use these in Reason projects rather than just for practicing with then you can copy and paste them over to your tracks in the usual way.

The patches are a free download at Audiotechracy.

Sounds And Effects releases ODD Reason ReFill

Sounds And Effects has announced the release of the its ODD Reason ReFill library for Propellerhead Reason.

Sounds And Effects ODD Reason ReFill

The ODD Reason ReFill from Sounds And Effects samples a vintage ARP Odyssey, but then takes a decidedly non vintage turn, using these samples as the basis for entirely new sounds using Reason’s powerful synth engine for a more modern and decidedly non vintage sound. Pitch dives and rises, bass wobbles, zaps, warbles, bleeps, trills, sub basses and buzzy squelchy leads.

ODD makes extensive use of the Combinator to take the NNXT presets in an entirely different direction. Many of the Combinator presets combine two NNXT presets with Reason’s powerful BV512 vocoder so that parameters like the important Vocoder Shift Control are ready accessible by the user. Other presets stick more closely to the ARP.

There are also three different default Combinator / Vocoder presets pre wired so that the user can easily choose from any of the 200 NNXT Presets, and simply plug them any into the Vocoders’ carrier and modulator inputs – potentially and rapidly creating hundreds of exciting new sounds.

In addition there are 175 REX loops.

The ReFill is available to purchase for the introductory price of $49.95 USD (regular $59.95 USD).

iox AudioWare Titan 410X

iox AudioWare has released Titan 410X, a non-destructive loudness maximizer Rack Extension for Propellerhead Reason.

Titan is designed to sculpt your music to maximum levels, fullness, and clarity without pumping artifacts or loss of transients. It uses a non-destructive two stage gain and “contour” control to achieve high average loudness while enhancing or maintaining low level details.

Although originally designed as a master bus effect, Titan can be used as an insert on individual tracks with very low latency. The output stage consists of a brickwall limiter with adjustable soft clip to “soften” clipped signal levels. Monitoring peak and average signal levels is critical in the mastering stage which is why an alphanumerical meter display is provided for quick and easy checks of the input or output levels.

Titan 410X Precision Maximizer features

  • Processing utilizes 64 bit floating point.
  • Alphanumerical display for easy monitoring of signal levels even in bypass mode.
  • Low latency, which makes syncing real-time audio and MIDI possible.
  • Pre-process “over” 0dB indicator LEDs to detect a “hot” input signal.
  • Adjustable soft-clip algorithm to reduce harsh signal.

The Rack Extension is available to purchase for 55 EUR.
