Sononics releases Revival 1.0 - Drawbar Synthesizer Rack Extension for Reason


Sononics has released Revival 1.0, a new Rack Extension instrument for Propellerhead Reason.

Revival is a "neo-classic", hybrid instrument that combines the power of modern synthesis with vintage organ sounds of another era. Drawbar additive-synthesis, harmonic modifiers and vintage effects combine to create an instrument that spans multiple genres with a vast sonic palette and responsive feel.


Tone Generation:

  • Four drawbar sections, with 10 drawbars each, create the tonal palette with up to 40 oscillators per voice.
  • Drawbars and wave-sets determine the basic tone of a Revival patch. Modifiers can then be used to create more complex textures. An envelope section provides control of the patch's basic dynamics.
  • Wave-sets are used with drawbars to create an enormous variety of base-textures.
  • Tuning and voicing overlay options can emulate classic instruments such as the Hammond B3 organ.

Harmonic Modifiers:

  • Harmonic modifiers can dramatically alter the tone of the drawbar components, with several algorithms to choose from.
  • Modifiers can be animated (modulated) with preset envelope shapes. Each modifier also includes note and velocity scaling controls.
  • Modifiers are assigned to drawbars with a matrix of LED switches, creating an almost limitless range of sound-design possibilities.

Built-in Effects Rack:

  • Tube and transistor-modeled preamps.
  • Vintage stereo phaser.
  • Multi-mode mod-filter.
  • Speaker/cabinet-emulation includes classic rotary speakers with alternate miking.
  • Rich, high-density reverb/plate/room-simulator.
  • Multi-mode delay module.
  • Master limiter with variable threshold to manage rogue peaks and maximize perceived level.
  • Effects section can be used with external devices by patching them into the back panel's stereo audio input.

External Modulation:

  • MIDI and external modulation (CV-Input) can be scaled and mapped to several front-panel controls.

Price: $75 / €59 through August 31st, 2013 (regularly $99/€79).
