Reason 7.1 Released + FREE Synchronous Rack Extension

Synchronous Rack Extension by Propellerhead
Huge news today, Reason fans.  In addition to a new bugfix and workflow improvement version of Reason – Propellerhead have released a new FREE Rack Extension called Synchronous.  The RE is meant to show off new RE SDK features that will allow all RE developers to add fancy GUI elements to their REs.  So, let’s get fancy and check out Synchronous!

Building on the latest Rack Extension technology, Synchronous is an inspiring modulation plug-in that offers rhythmically synced effects that bring your music to life. With the built-in waveform tools, you can easily draw and dial in Distortion, Filter, Reverb, Delay and Level for anything from side-chain pumping and tremolos to beat-repeating and tweaked out wobbles.

So it’s device that you can draw modulation patterns with – whether that’s for controlling the onboard Synchronous FX or using external FX through CV.  The onboard FX are excellent, and a great starting point for bringing static sounds to life.

This release is especially relevent to myself and our sister business Nucleus SoundLab.  I’ve personally had the pleasure to experiment with Synchronous for the last few weeks while it’s been in beta.  Not only that, but together with some of our associated designers – Tom Pritchard, Nicolas Delmotte and Adam Fielding – Nucleus SoundLab did the entire factory library for Synchronous!  It was an absolute blast to mess around with this awesome RE and create some sounds that are hopefully very useful for all of you.

What’s the best part about Synchronous?  It’s completely FREE!  The only limitation is that is a limited-time offer.  To get Synchronous free you’ll need to download it before June 30th, 2014.  Oh, and you’ll also need Reason 7+.  Synchronous doesn’t run on Reason 6.5.
