Hi everybody, this is Markkus for the Audio Tech News Flash, brought to you by Accusonus.
Propellerhead has released Reason 10.1, a free update for registered users. With this update, Reason’s marquee wavetable synthesizer, Europa, can now import audio samples to use as one of Europa’s oscillator waveforms or as the filter’s spectral multiplier. Reason 10.1 also supports a new Rack Extension protocol that lets developers create Rack Extension Player devices. Also, Reason 10 users can get the Drum Sequencer Rack Extension Player for free when they update to or purchase Reason 10.1 by the end of May 2018. The full version of Reason costs $399 USD or €349 EUR.
The software synthesizer MOK Waverazor has been updated to version 2.0. Waverazor 2.0 opens up the synthesizer engine with its Contextual Editor. This lets you access the entire synthesizer architecture and craft intricate connections for your sounds. Waverazor 2.0 is distributed by Tracktion, makers of the Tracktion DAW, and is available for $159 USD.
The iZotope VocalSynth2 vocal processing plug-in will be released later this month. VocalSynth2 features a new module called Biovox, which models the physical sounds of the human vocal tract, such as nasality, vowel shapes, breathiness, and formants. VocalSynth2 also adds new effects, new module controls, and works with the inter-plug-in communication of iZotope’s Neutron 2 and Ozone 8 software. VocalSynth is on pre-order now for $149 USD.
Online mastering and music distribution service LANDR has introduced LANDR Samples, a curated, artist-provided free sample pack service for anyone who signs up with LANDR for free. Some of the artists providing free samples include Dirty Projectors, Mike & Keys, Blue Hawaii, and Marc Houle. In the future, music producers should be able to submit their own sample packs to the service. To give LANDR Samples a try, go to landr.com.
