Propellerhead Reason 10 now includes two massive new synthesizers – the Europa Shapeshifting Synthesizer and the Grain Sample Manipulator. The three new organic virtual instrument collections include a premium acoustic piano, a creative modulation device, and 3 GB of cutting-edge drum loops and samples.
"Reason 10 builds on our award-winning software with the best sounding instruments we’ve ever created,” says Mattias Häggström Gerdt, Propellerhead Product Manager. “Europa and Grain continue our tradition of stunning yet intuitive synthesizers with more than a few tricks up their sleeves. Our users have been asking for powerful new devices that enable them to explore new sounds, and we delivered with Reason 10. Now that it’s here, we’re very excited to see what music they will create.”
Europa is a dynamically generated wavetable synthesizer that offers extreme flexibility and power, allowing a wide range of waveform modulation possibilities, plus advanced spectral filtering and harmonics processing – even including drawn custom waveforms. According to Propellerhead, despite its deep synthesis powers, the new synth is also surprisingly easy to use, thanks to an intuitive interface and workflow.
Grain opens up the world of granular synthesis for Reason users, with immense sonic power and an inviting interface. The new synth allows importing samples and generating endless sonic variations using an extensive collection of algorithms, ultra-flexible modulation, routing and effects.
Reason 10 also includes three new sampled instrument collections created in collaboration with Soundiron. Klang Tuned Percussion includes 10 high-quality sampled melodic percussion instruments that are perfect for modern pop and electronica. Pangea World Instruments includes 11 world instruments that add a unique flavor to any genre of music. Humana Vocal Ensemble is a collection of choirs and solo vocals, perfect for adding a human touch to film scores, soundtracks and more.
Reason 10 also includes Propellerhead’s acclaimed Radical Piano instrument and Synchronous Effect Modulator – previously only available as Rack Extensions via the Propellerhead Shop. Radical Piano is an authentic, flexible and bendable piano instrument that provides sounds for every situation and every song. And with Synchronous, users can bring their music to life with quick sidechain effects – and even draw their own LFO curves to control filter, delay, reverb, distortion and level.
In addition, Reason 10 comes with over 3 GB of new sample content in Reason Drum Supply and Reason Loop Supply. These ReFills include a wealth of new drum samples and loops – from vintage drum machines to the sounds of the future.
