Below is a a summary of new features which I should point out includes a re-design of their sequencer which now supports clips!
- Thor Polyphonic Synthesizer – "six different oscillator types and four unique
filters. What does this give you? Simply the most powerful synth ever
created; an unstoppable monster of a sound generator that utilizes
synthesizer technology from the last 40 years." Sound samples are included on the site.
- RPG-8 Monophonic Arpeggiator – "a brand new unit dedicated to the art of
arpeggiation…a wide range of on-panel controls
and mode selectors, a pattern section for muting selected notes in an
arpeggio and a large display showing values and positions, this device
gives you full creative control over your arpeggios."
- ReGroove Mixer – "Want your music to sound less rigid, less
programmed? Need your drums to move and groove as if played live by
actual musicians? If you want your tracks to flow with that loose, yet
tight feel, a regular shuffle control just doesn’t cut it. That’s why
we created the ReGroove mixer, Reason’s own realtime groove management
- Re-designed Sequencer – "With a whole new look, a ton of fresh features
and a completely new way of handling sequencer data, the Reason
sequencer has matured… A sequencer device or instrument
now gets its own dedicated track, with separate lanes for note,
performance and automation data, opting for a better overview and less
clutter. All sequencer data – notes, automation, the works – is now
housed in clips, musical building blocks that can be opened, sliced or
moved. When a clip is moved to a new location, all its internal data
follows right along with it, always ending up exactly where you
intended it to. For safe, speedy sequencing."
- Localized and will be available in English, French, German or Japanese.
