Additive Synthesis is an entirely different type of synthesizer technology than most of us use in our music. Historically speaking, that’s because Additive Synthesis has been hard to understand and a heavy burden on computers to keep up with the hundreds of oscillators needed to make complex sounds.
Well we’ve fixed that. Parsec is our latest Rack Extension instrument for Reason and it brings a completely new and musical approach to Additive Synthesis.
In this Micro Tutorial, you’ll learn all about how Additive Synthesis works and how you can experiment with Parsec to bring new sounds to your music.

Quadelectra has launched CV Suite Parametrix, a Rack Extension for Propellerhead Reason that lets you control any CV Input signal as if it was a parameter.
CV Suite Parametrix is the third “child” of our CV Suite Line series…
This is a simple straightforward and very handy device that will turn any CV Input in an automatable parameter.
CV Suite Parametrix features
- Four individual parameter to CV converters can be controlled per device.
- You can select whether each parameter will expand across bipolar or unipolar range…
- All parameters can be named by clicking to the label tapes next to the headings.
- An additional dedicated CV Modulation Input is provided per parameter, the range (trim knob) and the appliance of which you can set and automate too from the front panel.
The Rack Extension is available to purchase for 7.50 EUR.
Track composed (just a jam) using only presets made by Alba Ecstasy.
You can find the packs right here: http://goo.gl/Eg4I08
The drums are from the “71 presets” pack.
71 patches for Thor – compatible with Thor for iPad and Reason 4 and up. 100% royalty free! The patches will be sent via e-mail. After you made the payment, the pack is sent via e-mail within max. 24 hours (also check spam). For iPad, the Thor patches can be loaded only via iTunes.
I guess this one is a must have for anyone enjoying the Reason DAW, however it is expensive (as with everything else in the Prop Rack extension shop !!!) – its 99€

FXpansion has announced the release of Tres, a monosynth Rack Extension for Reason powered by DCAM analogue circuit-modelling technology.
Tres features our powerful TransMod modulation system and a wide variety of timbral flexibility and tone sculpting – a deep two-oscillator synth capable of deep basses, biting leads, strange drones, warped percussion and twisted SFX.
Tres’ modelled VCOs can interact at audio rate to produce complex tones; a filtered noise generator and sub-oscillator round out the oscillator section. A keytracking, time-variant shelf-EQ allows you to emphasize or cut higher harmonics before a switchable multimode filter with huge resonance, self-oscillation, FM, adjustable drive and 3 distinct classic synth filter models. Tres’ final output VCA provides a non-linear analogue drive stage for a variety of tonal colours from warm and smooth to gritty and aggressive.
Most of Tres’ parameters can be modulated simultaneously by any of 10 available modulation sources including Tres’ built-in dual envelopes and LFOs and external CV sources from elsewhere in your Reason project. You can also route external sources for audio-rate filter FM and use Tres’ built-in envelopes and LFOs to modulate other devices within your session.
Tres comes with a comprehensive library of over 200 unprocessed and Combinator patches, developed in conjunction with Nucleus Sound Lab.
Tres is available to purchase for $49 USD / 39 EUR inc. VAT where applicable.
