The Konarie “chirp” is a sample based Rack Extension synthesizer instrument made exclusively for the Propellerhead Reason rack. It is the first RE synthesizer designed specifically for optional hardware control - the first RE synthesizer you can actually touch.
The layout of the Chirp matches the open source Behringer BCR2000 midi hardware to give the user a true physical experience. For an authentic experience, you can purchase the sticker kit for the BCR 2000 from the Konarie Etsy store. The Sticker kit is sold separately and the Behringer BCR2000 is available from various retailers and on-line stores. Konarie is not affiliated with Behringer and only leverages the open source hardware as an option. All hardware support is obtained exclusively through the manufacturer and it’s affiliates.
By design, the Chirp is a simple yet powerful musical instrument. There is no mod-matrix, menu diving or complex envelopes. It is straight forward - like analog synthesizers from the 70’s and 80’s. Yet, the hybrid approach gives the user power and convenience that can exceed analog hardware in many ways. Patch saving, automation, powerful sequencing, digital fx, and the Reason Rack environment open the door to flexibility not possible in the analog realm.
The sampled oscillator analog waveforms are mapped “per key” using professional high-end and vintage studio equipment for an authentic and modern sound. Chirp gives you the perfect blend of both digital and analog worlds.
