Nucleus SoundLab has announced the release of Luminosity, a ReFill for Propellerhead's Parsec 2 Rack Extension. Parsec 2 added a wide-variety of new generators, modifiers and sound design tools, and Nucleus SoundLab's goal with Luminosity is "to bring all of the new features together for your maximum musical inspiration".
The 64 included Combinators run the sound design gamut – from crunchy, otherworldly keyboards to searing wavetable leads, to soft and hazy ambient pads. Special attention has been paid to the playability of these sounds. A major focus of the ReFill is on velocity modulations that don't just change volume levels, but instead change the core timbre of the sound itself. In this way, Nucleus SoundLab say Luminosity is an extremely nuanced ReFill for live performances.
Each Combinator has unique rotary, button and modwheel destinations; Combinators are categorized across five categories for easy access; Parsec 2 patches that make up each Combinator are also available; and all patches have been volume-balanced to fit into your mix instantly and not offend ears or blow monitors. All Combinators feature easy controls to turn sequences or arpeggios into standard leads/polys/basses playable over MIDI.
- 64 unique Combinators.
- 80 Parsec 2 device patches.
- 1 demo song packed inside the ReFill, for you to break down and examine in detail.
- All Combinator rotaries/buttons/modwheel uniquely mapped.
- Luminosity is fully compatible with older Reason versions – only Reason 7+ and Parsec 2+ is required.
