Propellerhead announces Pulsar LGM-1 - Rack Extension for Reason

Reason Studios

Propellerhead today announced Pulsar LGM-1, the second Rack Extension from Propellerhead to be available at the launch of the next version of Reason, the company's music making software. Comprised of two LFOs, cross-modulation, lag, shuffle and a flexible envelope, Pulsar brings a fresh take on modulation—from rigid and predictable to groovy and evolving.

To celebrate the release of the Rack Extension platform, Pulsar will be gifted to everyone who is using Rack Extension compatible versions of Reason and Reason Essentials for the first three months after release—a $49/€39 value.

"We want all Reason users to get the experience of using Rack Extensions," says Leo Nathorst-Böös, Product Marketing Manager. "Pulsar is an amazing device that opens up a lot of new possibilities for creative sound-sculpting, and with the included ReFill, it's something that all Reason users will enjoy—regardless of whether you're a tweak-head or not. It feels great to be able to provide Pulsar for free to our loyal users."

Thanks to the Reason rack's flexible routing, Pulsar integrates with all Reason devices, opening up new possibilities for creative modulation within the program. With Pulsar it's easy to create a shuffled tremolo that changes speed as different notes are triggered, or come up with ever-changing wobbles that respond to playing.

Using its audio outputs, Pulsar transforms from a low frequency oscillator to a high-powered synth with plenty of character. The waveforms designed for modulation, combined with the unique lag and shuffle controls, bring tons of unique tones.

For users that are not versed with the modular aspects of Reason, Pulsar also comes with a set of premade patches, containing everything from lush evolving pads to the grittiest of basses.

Pricing and availability

Pulsar LGM-1 will be released simultaneously with version 6.5 of Reason and version 1.5 of Reason Essentials Q2 2012, at a price of $49 / €39. For the first three months of the release Pulsar will be available as a free download from the Propellerhead Store.

Yawn. I will be far more impressed - ecstatic in fact - when Propellerheads finally announces MIDI out capability that will allow me to record my analog synthesizers in Reason.

THAT is what I want.
