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.

The Audiomatic Retro Transformer is a new Rack Extension that comes free with Reason 7. Audiomatic is for your music what those insta-hipsta-analogififcation apps are for your cellphone pics. It’s about taking your sounds and making them a little bit wrong in the right way. Color your sounds, add extra grit, or indulge in the lo-fi goodness.
In this microtutorial, we’ll show you how Audiomatic was deployed across an entire mix to bring authenticity to the retro vibe. A little retro here… a little retro there… and it adds up to a dramatically awesomized mix.
Here’s a walk-through of all the functionality in Repeat, a 4-channel, real-time, live-looper for Reason. If you’d like to see Repeat in action, check out this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EQUOS…

New video merely stating the obvious I guess 😀

This is a demo and beta call for a new Reason Rack Extension called Repeat. It’s a real-time, 4 channel, first-loop enabled looper.
You’ve spent hours on your track? Working and reworking every part to bring your musical vision to life. And you know that the quality of your reverb can be the difference between the rich sounding mix you’re after and one that comes off as flat and artificial.
Face it: When it comes to pristine, authentic reverb, it’s the algorithm that counts. RP-Verb is the fruit of Rob Papen’s decades-long study of reverb and endless hours of exploring, testing, and tweaking by Rob and Jon Ayres. The result is exactly what you would expect: a stunning, musical reverb that brings unmatched dimension and fullness to your mixes.
RP-Verb is the reverb you’ve waited years to have in your Reason setup. Try it out for yourself and see why pros describe it with one word: amazing.
Introduction price until 30 April: Euro 49 / USD 59 (normal price Euro 65 / USD 79)

Introducing Rotor, a rotary speaker Rack Extension from Propellerhead. Meticulously modeled on the Leslie 122, Rotor brings the sound of the classic rotary speaker design to Reason—perfect for adding a vintage flavor to organs, guitars, vocals and keys.
The Leslie speaker is a specially constructed amplifier/loudspeaker used to create special audio effects using the Doppler effect by rotating the speakers or a sound-directing duct. Named after its inventor, Donald Leslie, it is particularly associated with the Hammond organ but is used with a variety of instruments as well as vocals. The Hammond/Leslie combination has become an element in many genres of music. The Leslie Speaker and the Hammond Organ brands are currently owned by Suzuki Musical Instrument Corporation.
A rotary speaker simulator also known as a Leslie speaker simulator, is a device that attempts to recreate the sound of a Leslie speaker used extensively to amplify and modulate the raw organ tones produced by (though not exclusively) the tonewheel organs made by the Hammond Organ Company, and invented by Don Leslie.
While many analog devices have been touted as rotary speaker simulators, including but not limited to the Mini-Deja Vibe, Mojo Vibe, Rotosphere, Rotovibe, and Uni-Vibe, it was often only capable of simulating vibrato and at most chorus, despite the fact that a rotary speaker can also accomplish flanging, phase shifting, and even tremolo. This is because, instead of actually mimicking the way the sound wave is manipulated by the baffles of a Leslie Speaker cabinet (i.e. rotary speaker cabinet) and bounced around the cabinet, all the analog devices actually do is manipulate the signals themselves. Thus, the result is one that, though pleasant and interesting, is by no means similar to the sound produced by a Leslie.
Introduction to the A-Series Modular Synth Rack Extensions for Reason
The A-Series Modular Synth is the first fully modular synth for Reason, where you can design your synths however you want for whatever sound you can imagine. And because all the modules are mix-and-match, all those Reason effects and devices that you already have can go right inside your custom synth.
Soundcells has announced Antidote Signature, a ReFill for the Antidote Rack Extension by Synapse Audio.
Antidote Signature for Reason 6.5 and up is based on the Antidote Rack Extension from Synapse Audio – a synthesizer that offers a powerful architecture to produce more than mere ‘bread and butter‘ sounds, combined with a clear and logical user interface. Thanks to its high quality oscillators and the zero-latency filter design – among some other great features -, the user can be sure always to get a very clear and powerful sound out of Antidote.
The Antidote Signature ReFill is an impressive proof of this, and it brings highly playable and great sounding patches to the user´s hand. It´s not genre-specific, so Wurlitzer-like pianos, modern screaming but also classic hardware-like leads, punching basses, warm & rich pads and surprising textures emphasize why this little gem should be part of everybody´s portfolio…
Antidote Signature features
- 70 Combinator patches.
- 100 Antidote patches: Atmos & Textures, Bass, Keys, Leads, Pads, Rhythmic, SFX.
- Well programmed mod matrix assignments.
- Well balanced volume settings & carefully assigned modwheel and combinator buttons and knobs.
The ReFill is available to purchase for 8.90 EUR (requires Synapse-Audio Antidote RE, not included).
