Rob Papen has introduced QUAD, a synthesizer Rack Extension for Propellerhead Reason.
QUAD is the first Rack Extension synthesizer built from the ground up for Reason by the Rob Papen team. It features two oscillators with a seemingly simple arsenal of classic waveforms. The sonic palette is huge though, through the vast modulation possibilities that QUAD has to offer.
The oscillators can be combined through many cross modulation functions – generating a wide range of harmonics. The next steps in the sound sculpting are the Phase Distortion and Wave Shaper. These tools are brought to life by four XY-Pads, which can be moved through an extensive modulation matrix. The movements can be recorded as automation directly into Reason’s sequencer.
QUAD’s oscillators are complemented by two top notch analogue modelled filters, an arpeggiator and two high quality effects processors.
Welcome to the new refreshing synthesizer QUAD – only in Reason!
QUAD will be available soon.

Sounds And Effects has announced the release of The Mandolin, a sample library for Reason and Kontakt.
With the release of ‘The Mandolin from Sounds And Effects,’ Sounds And Effects brings the same attention to detail, the audio fidelity and responsiveness of ‘Pure Acoustic Guitars’ to the mandolin. The new instrument includes the following articulations:
- Picked – four velocity layers
- Fingerstyle -Two different styles, five velocity layers each, round robin switches between the two styles and between finger style and picked (round robin is for Kontakt only)
- Muted notes -Soft and hard
- Strums -two speeds, hard and soft, also low octave strums
- Tremelo -three speeds
- Fret noises and chops – in each preset and mapped below the mandolins low range
Presets allow for key switches from pretty much any articulation to another, for instance fingerstyle to picked notes, pick to pluck, mute to pick, picked to fast or slow strum, picked or fingerstyle to tremolo, and so on.
The Mandolin features
- 795 samples, 24bit/44.1kHz.
- Reason: 44 NNXT presets, 44 Combinators, 1.06 gigs uncompressed / 433.5 megs packed. Requires Reason 6 or higher.
- Kontakt: 45 presets, 1.06 gigs. Requires Kontakt 5 or higher.
The Mandolin is available for purchase for $59.95 USD.

Nektar has released a new Panorama Reason installer delivering full Panorama compatibility with Reason 8 as well as backwards compatibility from Reason 5 and up.
New features include the ability to create devices in Reason 8, directly from Panorama, by selecting Reason default devices from a Panorama popup menu or navigating Rack Extensions in the Reason 8 browser. Building a track from scratch without the use of a mouse, is now a reality with Panorama.
A General MIDI setup has also been created for External MIDI Instruments providing parameter names for each control according to the GM specifications.
In addition, mapping for 24 new Rack Extensions has been added taking the total number of pre-mapped RE’s to 139.
The Panorama update is compatible with Panorama P1, P4 and P6 and is available free to all Panorama users from My Downloads on the Nektar website.
