Christmas has come early in Propeller-land.

For a limited time, when you buy Reason (full version or Student/Teacher) you'll get the best-selling Radical Piano and Radical Keys Rack Extension instruments for FREE! ($149 value)

Radical Piano and Radical Keys bring instantly playable, infinitely tweak able pianos and electromechanical keyboards with sonic capabilities ranging from the ultra realistic to the utterly outlandish.

New Parsec Micro Tutorial

Parsec Tutorial

Our latest Rack Extension instrument is called Parsec, an additive spectral synthesizer that will create some amazing emulations of acoustic instruments or other worldly sounds, alike. Additive synthesis can be a tricky concept to understand and all too often, additive synthesizers are tricky to program too.

Parsec solves both of these issues with an interface that is geared towards sound creation, experimentation, and inspiration. In this tutorial, we'll give you a solid foundation in additive synthesis and Parsec's unique approach to it. You'll be making sounds and freaking "partials" in no time.
