Propellerhead Software today announced that Reason 10 is now available via the Propellerhead website and authorized resellers worldwide.
Reason 10 features two new synthesizers, the Europa Shapeshifting Synthesizer and the Grain Sample Manipulator, three new organic instrument devices, a premium acoustic piano, a creative modulation device, and 3 GB of drum loops and samples.
"Reason 10 builds on our award-winning software with the best sounding instruments we've ever created," said Mattias Häggström Gerdt, Propellerhead Product Manager. "Europa and Grain continue our tradition of stunning yet intuitive synthesizers with more than a few tricks up their sleeves. Our users have been asking for powerful new devices that enable them to explore new sounds, and we delivered with Reason 10. Now that it's here, we're very excited to see what music they will create."
Europa is a dynamically generated wavetable synthesizer. Apply a wide range of modulation to the waveform itself, add advanced spectral filtering and harmonics processing – even draw custom waveforms. And despite its deep synthesis powers, you'll find it surprisingly easy to use, thanks to an intuitive interface and workflow.
Grain opens up the world of granular synthesis for Reason users. Drop any sample into Grain and explore endless sonic variations using an extensive collection of algorithms, ultra-flexible modulation, routing and effects.
Reason 10 also includes three new sampled instrument collections created in collaboration with Soundiron. Klang Tuned Percussion includes 10 sampled melodic percussion instruments that are perfect for modern pop and electronica. Pangea World Instruments includes 11 world instruments that add a unique flavor to any genre of music. Humana Vocal Ensemble is a collection of choirs and solo vocals, perfect for adding a human touch to film scores, soundtracks and more.
Reason 10 also includes Propellerhead's Radical Piano instrument and Synchronous Effect Modulator – previously only available as Rack Extensions via the Propellerhead Shop. Radical Piano is an authentic, flexible and bendable piano instrument that provides sounds for every situation and every song. And with Synchronous, you can bring your music to life with quick sidechain effects – and even draw your own LFO curves to control filter, delay, reverb, distortion and level.
In addition, Reason 10 comes with over 3 GB of new sample content in Reason Drum Supply and Reason Loop Supply. These ReFills include a wealth of new drum samples and loops – from vintage drum machines to the sounds of the future.
