Rack Extensions for Propellerhead Reason
We are delighted to announce the arrival of Re-Tron as a Reason Rack Extension.
What are Rack Extensions?
With Propellerhead's Rack Extensions the Reason rack opens up to third party developers. Far more than just another plugin format – Rack Extensions are full Reason rack citizens, instruments, effects etc allowing you the same great, fully-integrated experience as with any other Reason device.
Remaining faithful to the 35 note 8 second limitation of the original instrument, Re-Tron gives you direct access to 25 carefully curated tape banks (and a raft of Patches) recorded from the original Streetly Electronics EMI master tapes via the Skellotron, an exoskeletal M400 allowing full control over tapehead height and azimuth alignments. This means that you have the most authentic and essential tape bank collection under your fingertips from the get-go.
Based on the multi-award winning M-Tron Pro, Re-Tron offers a number of unique features, such as a full array of back-panel Modulation Inputs & Outputs and CV Gate control that only Reason affords, plus several tape banks that have never previously been released in any digital format.
With a wealth of patches on offer, from the simple and straightforward to the more adventurous Artist Mixes, Re-Tron functions as either a basic playback device for these iconic sounds and patches, or, via the dual-layer and comprehensive editing features, you can create your own bespoke, hybrid 'Tron sounds.
Whatever way you decide to use it, Re-Tron is guaranteed to inject an authentic old-world charm and character all too often missing in the digital domain.
