Propellerhead Releases Complex-1 Modular Synth Rack Extension for Reason
New modular synthesizer plugin brings sonic depth to the legendary Reason Rack
STOCKHOLM, Sweden December 18, 2018—Propellerhead Software today released Complex-1, a modular synthesizer plugin for Reason. Whether you’re looking to add flavor to your next song, or if you’re dreaming of wires and wall-to-wall modules, Complex-1 is a synth lover’s dream machine. Drawing from several schools of modular synth aesthetics, Complex-1 brings the quirks, freedom and sonic depth of modular synthesis to your Reason Rack. Boasting a 4x oversampled synthesis engine, a freely routable signal and modulation path, Complex-1 sounds like nothing else.
“Propellerhead makes a lot of different instruments for different types of music makers.” said Mattias Häggström Gerdt, Product Manager. “For synth lovers, Complex-1 is one of the most ambitious synths we’ve ever made. Whether you’re deep into the modular world or you simply love trying new things- Complex-1 offers a whole new palette of sounds to Reason for endless sonic possibilities.”
From esoteric sonic experiments to pristine synth instrument tones to beefy basses - Complex-1 sounds like nothing else. If you’re a seasoned modular synth enthusiast, you can dive right in. If modular synthesis is new to you, it can look a bit daunting, but it’s actually surprisingly easy to get going. Load up any of the 150+ included patches to start your sonic exploration. Nothing can break and there’s the undo button for your rescue.
The selection of modules in Complex-1 bring a mix of modular synth ideologies to the Reason Rack. The Complex Oscillator, Low Pass Gates and Shaper modules, build on the works on Don Buchla (or West Coast style) and the regular Oscillator and ladder design Filter module, which derive more from the Bob Moog school of synth design. Combine them anyway you like and craft your very own unique synth sounds.
