Propellerhead Announces Reason 10
Propellerhead has announced Reason 10, the latest upgrade to the audio workstation that introduces 6 new instruments, a new time-based effects modulator and 3+ GB of new samples and loops. In addition, Reason 10 launches two new synthesizers: the Europa Shapeshifting Synthesizer and Grain Sample Manipulator.
- Europa Shapeshifting Synthesizer: To call it a wavetable synth wouldn’t be wrong, but it’s so much more than that. Apply a wide range of modulation to the waveform itself, to start with. Add advanced spectral filtering, harmonics processing and even draw your custom waveforms. And the best part: despite it’s deep synthesis powers, it’s still surprisingly easy to use.
- Grain Sample Manipulator: The Grain synthesizer opens up the world of granular synthesis for your creative use. Drop any sample into Grain and explore the endless sonic variations you can create with Grain’s selection of playback algorithms, ultra-flexible modulation, routing and effects.
