Numerical Sound has announced Tone Mutation: Vocals, a Rack Extension for Reason and Reason Essentials.
Numerical Sound Tone Mutation: Vocals (TMV) contains 36 human vowels and animal resonances designed to greatly expand the range of your synthesizer and audio tracks by transforming them into vocal sounds.
High precision resonances dramatically enhance vibrato – giving accurate vibrato tone from any synth. Elevated high frequencies allow TMV to work with maintain clarity and impact on any percussion sound. Dramatically changes the sound of your existing patches, especially pads and full-frequency sounds. The available combinator patch allows smooth morphing through 8 different selectable vocal sounds on any Reason instrument.
Tone Mutation: Vocals features
- 36 Timbral Impulses cover a wide range of vowels and semi-vowels as well as a selection of Walrus, Whale, Alligator, Leopard and Panther vocalizations snapshots.
- The Convolution approach enables capabilities and precision sound that is impossible with parametric and multiband EQ’s.
- Stereo Width, Gain, Pan and Dry/Wet controls make it easy to mix and shape the sounds.
- Audiophile design supports 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96 and 192 KHz sample rates, with processing transparently optimized for each sample rate.
- Bonus: Find different ways to use TMV instantly with the free combinator instrument patches. Some patches are available to trial users to get started quickly, but registered users get even more, including intermittent e-mailed updates from Numerical Sound

Korg’s original Mono/Poly, released in 1981, was a monophonic/polyphonic behemoth that was popular worldwide. It provided four oscillators, a resonant filter, dual EGs and Modulation Generators, plus 4-way Synchro and Cross Modulation capability for creating aggressive and signature tonal effects. Mono/Poly was reborn as software as part of Korg’s Legacy Collection – Analog Edition 2007.
The new Mono/Poly for Reason is a software version specially developed for Propellerhead’s Rack Extension Plugin format for Reason. In addition to faithfully replicating the original sounds, the Mono/Poly for Reason also adds enhancements such as 128-voice polyphony (max), up to 16-voice unison, Mono/Poly up to date for use in modern music production.
Beyond perfectly reproducing the original, this version of Mono/Poly also greatly extends its sound-creating potential. An eight virtual patch matrix lets users route 159 modulation sources to modulate 35 destinations for creating complex, diverse sounds. Two integrated multi-effects and an arpeggiator deliver modern performance power and flexibility.
The software interface provides reorganized knobs and switches that resurrect the MonoPoly in a contemporary “rack-mountable” form for intuitive operation and sound-creating versatility.
Mono/Poly for Reason will be available for download at Propellerhead’s web-shop shop.propellerheads.se on June 20th for U.S $49.00. Additional product information can be found at: www.korg.com/MonoPolyforReason
The AutoTheory Harmonic Engine enables anyone, regardless of musical theory or keyboard training, to easily create professional-sounding melodies and harmonies.
AutoTheory makes it easy to play in harmony. Simply choose a key and a scale and AutoTheory will map all relevant chords and notes to the keys of your keyboard. Connect it to one or more Reason instruments and it will transform the way you play. Play full chords with just one finger. Experiment by modifying chords with the chord sliders and modifier keys. Adjust individual chord note voicings and transpose or remove any note to create a customised chord. Create your own scales or select one from the many provided. Use what sounds good to you.
AutoTheory automatically remaps notes to match your chords. Now you can easily improvise melodies that sound good. Maintain your hand in the same position while composing melodies over different keys, scales and chord configurations. Optionally lock specific chord tones to fixed white keys. Four mapping modes accommodate different levels of user experience. All controls in AutoTheory can be automated for easy transitions anywhere in a song. This means you can change the key or scale in the middle of a song without moving your hands.
AutoTheory also provides a Strum effect that can be used to add drama to any chord. Subtle and extreme timing changes are easily applied and fully CV-controllable. AutoTheory can control multiple instruments at once. One option sends the root note of chords to a dedicated bass instrument. Four chord and four melody channels provide independent control of velocity and octave for each connected instrument. This allows you to create a rich soundscape – all from a single sequencer lane or just your own hands. CV inputs are provided, which are useful for driving AutoTheory with Arpeggiators and Pattern sequencers.
Check out the included Demo Songs that demonstrate how to use AutoTheory. A set of useful Combinators is also provided.
This guide shows how Mozaic’s AutoTheory Rack Extension applies to music theory.

Silent Way Voice Controller, part of the Silent Way plug-in suite, will soon be available as a Rack Extension for Propellerhead Reason. Silent Way offers deep control over analog synthesizers direct from your DAW.
For more information on Silent Way, see
Silent Way is a suite of plug-ins designed for use with analogue synthesisers, and especially as part of a modular analogue synthesiser system. The plug-ins produce no sound themselves, nor do they process sound – rather, they generate signals to be used as control voltages (CVs), which can be patched into the control inputs of oscillators, filters, VCAs etc. of an analogue system. Also, with the addition of the CV Input plug-in, it is possible to bring CVs from the synth into the computer, for recording or processing.
There are currently eighteen plug-ins in the Silent Way suite – Silent Way AC Encoder, Silent Way CV Input, Silent Way CV To MIDI, Silent Way CV To OSC , Silent Way DC, Silent Way ES-4 Controller, Silent Way ES-5 Controller, Silent Way ESX-4CV Combiner, Silent Way Follower, Silent Way Learner, Silent Way LFO, Silent Way Quantizer, Silent Way SMUX, Silent Way Soundplane, Silent Way Step LFO, Silent Way Sync , Silent Way Trigger and Silent Way Voice Controller. These are described in more detail below. It is anticipated that more plug-ins will be added to the suite in the future – watch the website for product announcements.
Numerical Sound has announced the release of ReBass Narrow, a Rack Extension for the Reason music production software by Propellerhead Software.
ReBass uses convolution to target bass frequencies with extreme precision, emphasizing just a perfect fifth while leaving the surrounding material untouched.
This means no messing around with endless sweeping and tweaking – just target the range you want from C0-G0 (31-46Hz) to B3-F#4 (233-394Hz) by picking one of the 36 impulses. Each impulse is one semitone higher than the last, so you don’t have to think like an engineer to get a great sound – it’s quick, clear and free of the phasing artifacts and imprecision EQ can introduce.
ReBass Narrow features
- Extreme precision bandpass, rolling off 110 dB within 1.5 semitones from the target range, only possible through convolution and something that traditional EQs cannot match.
- 36 impulse organized by starting pitch cover 3 octaves from C0-G0 (31-46Hz) to B3-F#4 (233-394Hz).
- Audiophile Design: Supports 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96 and 192 KHz sample rates, with accurate detail, ultra-low noise floor and utmost transparency.
- Easy to Use Controls: Impulse List, Stereo Width, Gain, Pan and Dry/Wet controls make it easy to mix and shape the bass.
- Smooth CV based automation can be used Stereo.
- Width, Gain, Pan and Dry/Wet to creatively change your sound.
ReBass Narrow is available to purchase for 55 EUR.
