Propellerhead Software announced at Musikmesse Reason 2.5 for both Windows and Mac OS platforms.
New reatures in Reason 2.5 include: RV7000 advanced reverb, which consists of nine carefully crafted algorithms (small space, room, hall, arena, plate, spring, echo, multitap and reverse) with up to seven individual parameters each. In addition, the RV7000 also includes an EQ and a gate section. The BV512 Digital Vocoder is capable of modulating sounds both in an old-school analog style and in a digital FFT fashion, while also serving as a fully automated graphic EQ. Scream 4 Sound is a distortion unit with 10 different damage types (overdrive, distortion, fuzz, tube, tape, feedback, modulate, warp, digital and scream), incorporates a +/- 18dB 3-band equalizer and the unique Body Section, which is similar to a speaker simulator. The UN-16 Unison is a reincarnation of the "Unison" button found on early '80s synths. It fattens up incoming audio by emulating the effect of four, eight or 16 detuned voices playing the same sound. Spider Audio is a utility that merges and splits multiple audio signals. Spider CV is the same as Spider Audio except that the splitting and merging is performed on CV and gate signals.
Reason 2.5 will be available during the second quarter of 2003. Reason 2.0 registered users can receive the 2.5 update for free.
