Virtual Analog Synth For Reason

Synapse Audio has released Antidote, a new Rack Extension for Propellerhead Reason. Here's how they describe it in their own words:
Antidote is an exclusive virtual-analog synthesizer, which combines highest audio quality, flexibility and a fast work flow in an easy-to-use plug in. Antidote has been specifically developed to complement Reason, and to integrate well into its environment. It can be used both as an instrument, and as a powerful multi-effect unit.
Antidote comes with two stereo oscillator banks, each emitting a stack of high quality oscillator waveforms. The oscillators pass through the filter stage, which employ the latest zero-delay feedback designs. Envelopes and LFOs further shape the sound, and the powerful modulation matrix, which can modulate almost any sound parameter, adds the necessary depth to realize complex sounds.
The output of the synthesis stage finally passes through a big effect chain with Distortion, EQ, Phaser, Chorus, Delay, Reverb, Compressor and a unique Bass enhancement effect, which models the bass frequency response of some vintage analog gear.
Antidote ships with 300 Presets and 10 Combinator patches, covering a wide range of music genres.
Pricing and Availability:
Antidote is available at an introductory price of €79 until December 31st, 2012 (the regular price will be €119). More information:

Thor and Subtractor are so good that I'm not really interested in any additional VA synths for Reason. If someone were to invent a wavetable synth with user wavetables, though... or a sampler that could resynthesize and morph instead of cross-fade between samples... The money would fly out of my wallet in those cases!

I love this synth. It fills a nice gap between the Subtractor and Thor. It's intuitive and easy to use and most importantly sounds great. The filters are of a variety not available in either Thor or the Subtractor and most importantly, neither of those two can do those fat unison sounds in stereo that I feel Reason have been lacking. It shines on other va type sounds also and is a gret addition to the Reason rack.

FYI: The filter model in Antidote is based on a cascaded OTA design, found in Roland synths such as the SH-101, Jupiter 6/8 and Juno synths.

Also there's a model of the Diode Ladder filter found in the TB-303 as well as the System 100 (not 100M).

The oscillators have a unique mode called DYAD which, when enabled, doubles the selected amount of oscillators and pitch them upwards from a selection of 3, 4, 5, 7, 12, 19 and 24 semi tones. This enables you to do Chord stacks with up to 4 notes, even though Antidote only have two oscillators.
