There is not a single RE developer who'd like another synth in Reason 7. Props simply can't do that now. You see Props have the advantage that they could do techniques in Reason native that they and the rest of us can't (yet?) do in RE.

If they did another native synth now, especially one with features not available in RE, it would be like all RE devs co-funding a PH product that they're unable to create themselves and to compete with.

The same goes with other devices types. How would Blamsoft feel if R7 had a midi-2-cv splitter? How would Brian feel if R7 had an AutoArp clone? How would I feel if R7 had super-spiders?

This isn't like VST: Props earn money on every plugin device sold.

So Props can sell new RE devices in the Shop, but it would be a massively unfair advantage to bundle them free in Reason upgrades. They'd be insane to try it.

So I imagine R7 will be under-the-hood enhancement and usability upgrades, you know, like, um, Midi Out perhaps?! Heck, if we're lucky we might get ReXen!

@OP: there's a wide selection of excellent utilities, compressors, limiters and equalisers in the PropShop.
